TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- Florida State University police have arrested three people after an early morning robbery and battery on campus.

Officers say three suspects approached a student walking near Deviney Hall at 2:50 a.m. on January 19. They knocked the victim to the ground, beat him and took his wallet. The victim called police after arriving back at his dorm and had only minor injuries. The suspects were not armed.

FSU-PD identified the suspects as Alex Burnett, a University of Florida student, Randolf Dominikow, a Tallahassee Community College student, and Chandler Folsom, a student at Florida State University. All of them are 18 years old.

Florida State University police offer these crime prevention tips:

-Report suspicious behavior and activities immediately to police. If you see something, say something.

-Always pay attention to your surroundings. Avoid becoming absorbed in listening to music, phone applications, or other distractions.

-Avoid isolated locations. Stay in well lit, well populated areas. Criminals most often seek isolated persons to victimize.

-Remember that money and property can be replaced. Physical resistance to a robber may increase your chances of injury.
