Georgia Tech students are on alert after the second armed robbery was reported near campus in the past two weeks.
Two students walking home on Richards Street were ambushed around 1 a.m. Thursday, police told Channel 2 Action News.
Three college students, two from Georgia Tech and one from Georgia State, were robbed at gunpoint Sept. 4 while walking near Mecaslin Street and Ethel Street in northwest Atlanta, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.
Some students said they feel safe on campus, but that changes the second they step off.
"I just wish there was something more we could do to make sure it's a safer environment, not just on campus, but the outstanding regions where students are also living," Georgia Tech student Will Cook told Channel 2.
He said he'll never walk on or off campus at night alone.
"Just trying to be street smart about it and not wanting to do anything stupid about anything," he said.
