ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta police are searching for suspects in two daylight robberies of Morehouse College students.

Police say they were called to the Atlanta campus around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, where a student said he was walking from a Walmart store on Martin Luther King Dr. Drive when a man with a gun approached and demanded his belongings. The student turned over his wallet.

WSB Radio reports (http://bit.ly/1ultM0N ) that officers responded to a second call five minutes later, where another student reported being robbed while walking from a McDonald's restaurant on Burress Drive. That student said the suspect took a tan Army book bag that contained electronic devices.

The robberies come as Georgia Tech police investigate a pair of armed robberies to students there. (See separate story.)

No arrests have been made.
