UA Police are searching for two men they suspect are involved in a strong-armed robbery today in the Park Avenue parking garage.

The other suspect is described as a white man, mid- to late 20s, 5'10", with short blond hair, wearing a white T-shirt and shorts.

According to the UA Police Department, a male UA student was walking in the 1100 block of East Helen Street when he exchanged words with two men in a white van. The victim walked into the garage and was later approached by one of the men, who demanded he surrender his property.
