ST. LOUIS - Saint Louis University is increasing evening patrols around campus after two female students were robbed over the past week.

KMOV-TV reports that police are searching for an armed suspect. In both cases - the first at 10 p.m. Sunday, the second at 2 a.m. Thursday - an armed man approached a female student, showed a handgun, then robbed them.

Neither victim was hurt, but several students say the incidents have left them uneasy.
