ATLANTA - Police are looking for thieves who robbed two Morehouse students at gunpoint early Tuesday morning.

Police responded to a call at 7:45 a.m at Morehouse College where one student told them he was robbed.

The student said he was walking from Walmart on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive when he saw a man walking on the opposite side of the street talking on the phone.

He said the man then proceeded to walk across the street and approach him from behind saying, “Drop everything and give me what you got.”

The student said the man had a gun so he gave him his wallet.

Police responded to a second call five minutes later where they said a second student was robbed. The student said he was walking from McDonald's on Burress Drive when he saw a man walking on the opposite side of the street with his hands in his shirt.

He said the man got closer and presented a handgun, saying, “Give me everything you got.”

The victim said the man took a tan army book bag that had a MacBook Pro, an iPod and an iPhone in it.

He said the robber let him keep the iPhone.
