Sketch released in violent GSU library robbery

GSU students concerned about robbery

ATLANTA -- Police on the Georgia State University Campus are working to identify a man who robbed a student inside the school's library earlier this month.

A student was reportedly assaulted by a man who stole his laptop and phone one morning in the library. 

Another student complained that a man came up to him and asked if he'd ever been shot before.

GSU Police officers are reviewing footage from one surveillance camera after another looking for some sign of the person who held a student at gunpoint inside the campus library on the fourth floor.

"We have over 1100 cameras on campus, so we're going through cameras and we're looking at people who fit that description trying to enhance those videos and see if we can catch this individual and put a picture out to the public,"

The library is open to the public. Students have to swipe their ID cards to get inside.  Non-students have to show an id, and their information is recorded. Police are reviewing those logs.

Deputy Chief Mullis said it is the third incident that has happened in the library since Dec. 15 when another suspect stole a students' laptop and cell phone inside the library. Then two days before Thursday's robbery, a suspect snatched a student's cell phone off a table in the library.

Police said they are adding even more security than what they had earlier in the week.
