University police said they’re not ruling anything out in connection with an attempted robbery that occurred on the Texas State campus late Monday.

Meanwhile, the UPD is encouraging students to travel in groups and in well-lit areas at night, or to call Bobcat Bobbies for an escort.

Police said three black males attempted to rob the victim in the Speck Street Garage at around 11 p.m. Monday before escaping in an older model blue Nissan Altima.
