A man on the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi campus reportedly was hit over the head and robbed shortly before 10:45 p.m. Monday night.

The incident took place on the hike-and-bike trail near the Laguna and Marina student housing buildings.

Texas A&M-CC Director of Communications Luisa Buttler confirmed the reported attacked was on a 19-year-old student who lives on campus.

He had no open or visible wounds, but received a bump to the head and taken to Spohn Shoreline hospital to be evaluated.

The university is reporting that the suspects are two Hispanic men: One was wearing a blue tank top and dark shorts, and the other was wearing a white shirt and blue jeans. It is unknown whether the student knows his attackers, and they have not been caught.

The student also reported that only personal property was taken.

The university police chief there will be no increased patrols in that area. The department is investigating the incident, and is advising students and visitors stay alert, to be aware of their surroundings, and to report suspicious persons or activity to campus police.

Buttler said the campus has more than 200 security cameras, but none in the area where the attack happened. She also said campus police patrol all areas of the university, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
