Douglas County prosecutors have filed several charges, including counts of aggravated robbery, against two Fort Leavenworth soldiers accused of robbing two Kansas University students at gunpoint on campus early Thursday morning.
Prosecutors filed two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery and one count of aggravated intimidation of a victim against Brandon James Huggins, 23, and Michael Martin Gerald, 21. Both men are scheduled to appear before a judge at 3:30 p.m. Friday to get bond set in the case.
KU officials said two male students reported they were approached by two men, both of whom were armed with a gun, behind Snow Hall at 1:45 a.m. Thursday. The suspects took property from the victims before leaving the scene, but Lawrence police found the two suspects 20 minutes later.
KU Public Safety officers then interviewed Huggins and Gerald before arresting them. A Fort Leavenworth spokeswoman has said both men are soldiers stationed at the U.S. Army post.
