Two male Kansas University students reported being approached by two men, both of whom were armed with a gun, behind Snow Hall at about 1:45 Thursday morning, a KU official said.
The suspects demanded and took property from the victims before leaving the scene, said Jill Jess, a KU spokeswoman.
Lawrence police found the suspects about 20 minutes later, Jess said.
KU police interviewed the suspects — a 23-year-old Fort Leavenworth man and a 21-year-old Fort Leavenworth man — before arresting them on suspicion of aggravated robbery and intimidation of a witness or victim, according to jail records.
Both are expected to appear in Douglas County District Court today to face formal charges.
A Fort Leavenworth spokeswoman confirmed that both suspects are soldiers stationed at the U.S. Army post, but said she would not release further details until the suspects were charged.
Jess said representatives from KU’s Office of the Vice Provost for Student Success offered assistance to the victims.
No one was physically injured in the incident.
The Journal-World generally does not name criminal suspects until they are charged.
