Virginia Tech Police are searching for a man who officers say robbed a female student on campus Saturday morning.
The young woman told investigators that she was walking in-between Vawter and Newman Halls at 7:35 a.m., when a man walked up behind her, told her not to turn around, grabbed her purse, then ran off.
The woman did not get a good look at the robber, only telling police he wore a red sweatshirt or sweater.
The victim said no weapon was shown during the robbery, and she was not hurt.
The masked ISIS militant who appears to be shown beheading American journalist Steve Sotloff spoke on video before killing him, saying, “just as your missiles continue to strike our people our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."
The Islamic State militant group released a video Tuesday that it claimed shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
