HOUSTON – A warning is being issued to University of Houston students after three separate robberies.

According to campus police, someone visiting the campus was robbed while he walked to his car early Monday morning.

A few hours later, two men armed with guns robbed a student on the first floor of a campus parking garage. They stole his laptop, book bag and cellphone.
