Two ETSU students were robbed at gunpoint Tuesday at the gazebo behind Davis Apartments.
James Wolf, 18, and Caylan Roberts, 18, told police that they were walking near the gazebo behind Davis Apartments when they were robbed.
According to the police report, Wolf approached two men who were sitting at a picnic table in the gazebo, and one asked him for $5 to buy something to eat.
Roberts did not enter the gazebo with Wolf.
When Wolf pulled out his wallet to give the man some money, one of the men sitting at the table said, "Cock it," and both men drew handguns.
The men instructed Wolf to empty his backpack and call Roberts over to the table.
Wolf and Roberts reported that the men stole a Batman wallet and $72.
This was the second occurrence of armed robbery at ETSU in the last three weeks.
ETSU students Mathew Sigmon, 20, and Jesse Capps, 19, were robbed at gunpoint on March 26 as they were walking back from Cookout.
According to the police report, a man approached Sigmon and Capps between Lamb and Sam Wilson halls, holding a gun by his right side.
The man instructed Sigmon and Capps to empty their pockets and place their items on the ground.
Sigmon and Capps reported the loss of $55 and a brown wallet that contained both Capp's  and his girlfriend's student IDs, as well as Capp's Social Security Card and $10.
The university issued a statement Tuesday, announcing that Public Safety would have a greater nighttime presence on campus for the rest of the semester.
