    A pair of armed robberies that included a victim being pistol whipped near Santa Clara University has put the campus on alert. Terry McSweeney reports.

    A few minutes later, and just a few blocks away, another armed robbery was reported at Park Avenue and Mission Street -- this time involving three victims.

    The victims were approached by three men, who held them at gunpoint. Police said one of the victims was shoved to the ground and pistol whipped.

    Nearly three weeks after the robberies, police said they have beefed up patrols near Santa Clara University and are still searching for the suspects.

    "Hopefully someone will come and we've increased patrols to prevent another robbery," Lt. Kurt Clarke said.

    Some students said the attacks convinced them to take extra precautions.

    "Since we have finals right now we are trying to walk with a buddy late after leaving the library," student Taylor Ota said. "And as soon as we get home we lock the doors and double check that we've locked the doors."

    Police said it appears the suspects were the same in both attacks. They are described as three African American males in hooded sweatshirts, and all about 25 years old.

    Anyone with information on the armed robberies may contact police at 408-615-4814.
