They told police they went to the park with the intent to buy drugs from a drug dealer, the alert states.
The victims, who are not affiliated with the campus, were not injured during the encounter. Police were unable to locate the suspect.
The suspect is described as:
A Black male, approximately 36-years-old, 6 ft. tall, approximately 180 lbs. and armed with a silver pistol.
