(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University police are searching for a pair of suspects in a mugging that occurred near the Read Center residence hall on campus.

Early Saturday morning, police officers were dispatched to a call near the dormitory regarding a robbery that had just occurred.

Police made contact with the victim, who had a large cut on his forehead. According to the report, the victim was approached from behind by 2 male suspects that allegedly clubbed him over the head with what was described as a "log."

The muggers knocked the victim to the ground, stole his wallet, and took off running in an unknown direction.

Police describe the mugger that struck the victim as being a white male, around 6 feet tall, skinny with short brown hair, dark clothing and possibly blue jeans. The second mugger was not able to be seen clearly.
