Authorities say just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, one of the men knocked on a dorm door, while two others pointed a gun at their victims.

ATLANTA - All three people suspected in an armed robbery inside a Georgia State University dorm room have been arrested.

GSU police Deputy Chief Carlton Mullis identified the suspects as Quinton Arnold, 18, Dantevious Devall Patrick, 18, and Dorian Demetrius Stroud, 19. Arnold is a current student, Stroud is a former student and Patrick has no affiliation with the university, GSU spokeswoman Andrea Jones said.

Authorities said just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, one of the men knocked on a dorm door in the University Commons building, while two others pointed a gun at their victims.

The robbers left with an iPad and cellphones.

One man was arrested Wednesday night. Two more were apprehended Thursday morning.
Mullis said that one of the victims recognized Arnold, who also lives in the University Commons complex. That victim texted Arnold and asked him to meet him outside on Piedmont Avenue. “He did, and we arrested him,” Mullis said.

Video cameras placed all over the University Commons building recorded footage of the three armed robbers.

Police later released a photo of the suspects from security video. Patrick “saw himself on the video and called Atlanta police and turned himself in and APD turned him over to us,” according to Mullis.

He said Stroud’s mother recognized her son from the video photo “and she brought him in to GSU police about 6 a.m.”
