The Austin Police Department is seeking the help of UT students in catching three burglars responsible for an attempted January robbery in West Campus, according to a Wednesday press release.

Surveillance video captured the suspects — a black male, 28, and two white males, 30 and 40 — at an apartment complex on the night of the robbery.

APD Cpl. Anthony Hipolito said he believes the burglars were looking for an apartment where someone was dealing marijuana but found the wrong apartment.

The thieves entered the apartment at 3 a.m. and assaulted the residents. When the residents met the intruders with resistance, one resident was punched in the face, Hipolito said.
