Officials say both robberies in the past week occurred near the Emory campus just outside Atlanta. The robberies follow a series of armed robberies near college campuses in downtown Atlanta.
In one robbery, officials say a woman reported that two men took her purse at gunpoint on a street near the campus. In the other, an Emory student says she was robbed of her purse at gunpoint outside her apartment building.
Officials say neither woman was harmed.
