PEORIA -- Bradley Police are investigating two armed robberies that took place near Bradley's campus on Monday night. The incidents have left some students questioning their safety.
The first case happened at the St. James Apartment Complex just after 10:30 Monday night. It's a place that more than 600 upperclassmen call home.
Junior Carrie Peiffer lives in the complex. Peiffer said, "I know a few people who lived there or who were there during the time and they were really freaked out by it."
Later, police got a call to the intersection of Bradley Ave. and Cooper St. where another robber flashed a gun at a male student. Peiffer said she's more scared now, than ever before. "It's a little scary especially because there were two of them on opposite sides of campus... I mean it never used to be this, I don't know we never used to get this many emails about safety alerts."
Students said Bradley Police sent safety alert e-mails and text messages, notifying students of both incidents and giving them tips to keep themselves safe.
But some said they are still feeling afraid.
Freshman Allison Rutt said, "A little nervous especially at night. It's kind of more scary seeing police patrol around so it's more safe, but then it makes you suspicious that there could be something going on around."
Sophomore Jessie Van Kuikun said, "I'm getting a house near campus and a lot of robberies are happening there so that makes me nervous."
Sophomore Gregory Adler said, "If worse comes to worse, you give them what they want and don't resist because your laptop, watch or iPhone that's replaceable, but yourself, that's not replaceable."
Students tell us they believe Bradley is doing its best to keep them safe.
Police have no suspects in either case and investigations are ongoing.
