Police: Attempted robbery with knife reported at student apartment complex

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Greenville police are investigating where a young man was held up at knifepoint last night at the University Manor Apartments on 10th street in Greenville.

Police were called to the student apartment complex around 2:30am Friday. Police tell 9 On Your Side a young man was walking to his car when a man came up behind him with a knife.

Investigators believe the would-be robber did not get anything from his victim. They say the suspect did drop the knife and run away from the scene.

Police describe the suspect as a 5’9 light-skinned black man with an afro hairstyle. The suspect was wearing a navy blue or black pullover, jeans, and Timberland style boots.

This is the third incident where someone has been held up at knife point this week in Greenville.

Contact Greenville Police at 252-329-4317 if you have any information about the attempted robbery.
