SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Police on the campus of San Diego State University are hoping surveillance photos will lead to an arrest in a recent burglary.

The pictures are clear. They show two men walking in the hallway of a campus building. Another photo shows them at a different angle.

Police aren't releasing details about the burglary, but they say right now, there is no threat to campus.

This is the latest in a series of crimes on or near campus.

Last Wednesday night around 8:30, two men armed with guns robbed two people as they sat in their car. It happened in the north alley off of 55th and Montezuma.

Taylor Langpap and her roommate, Jessica Ancar, walk the alley all the time to get to their apartment.

"I was a little uneasy that it was just really close to my apartment, but I wasn't really surprised cause stuff like that happens all the time here," said Jessica.

In the fall, there was a string or robberies where students had their cellphones stolen.

In another case, a man was charged with ripping off students who were trying to sell things on the App Offer Up.

Campus police aren't saying if the men in the surveillance photos are wanted in any other crimes, but students say they are always taking precautions, especially when walking after dark.

"I make sure to call one of my family members or a friend, and then if I am not on the phone with someone, I try to keep very aware of my surroundings. They have blue lights around campus, you just have to make sure where those are so you can get where you are going safely," said Alexandra Howder.
