An armed man robbed an LSU student early Sunday morning on East Campus Drive near the law school, university police said.

A light-colored pickup stopped near where the student was walking on East Campus Drive at about 3 a.m. The passenger jumped out and demanded all items the victim had on him, spokesman Capt. Cory Lalonde said.

The robber pulled up his hooded sweatshirt and revealed a handgun in his waistband, Lalonde said.

He took the wallet and cellphone, jumped back into the pickup, which was last seen on Dalrymple Drive, leaving campus, Lalonde said.

Police issued a campus-wide text alert at about 3:40 a.m., informing people of the robbery.

The vehicle is believed to be a 2004-2006 Toyota Tundra with a spare tire on the rear of the passenger’s side, Lalonde said.

The robber is described as a thin, white man, between 20-25 years old, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds. He has blond hair and facial hair, Lalonde said.

The driver is a white man with brown or black hair, about 20-25 years old, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing about 170 pounds, Lalonde said.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact LSU Police at 578-3231.
