Students robbed at gunpoint, pepper sprayed outside library

ATLANTA -- Students are on edge about two separate attacks on a public street within the Clark Atlanta University campus. Both victims were pepper sprayed and one was robbed at gun point.

The attacks happened outside the Robert W. Woodruff Library which is used by students at several surrounding schools.

The attacks happened twice in less than a week. All the victims are female, and it may have been the same person behind the attacks.

"I wasn't really sure what was going on. There was a lot of commotion," Anessa Trask said.

Trask stumbled upon the victim of Saturday's attack just after someone pepper sprayed the student and stole her iPhone.

"She had her hands on her eyes. She was still wiping her eyes so I'm guessing it was still stinging," she said.

Monument for fallen APD officers missing

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- A day after the third anniversary of the death of two Atlanta Police helicopter pilots, there are questions about what happened to a monument put up in their honor.

It has been gone for months and even the victim's families aren't sure what's happened.

Just last year, not far from where the helicopter crashed in southwest Atlanta, the city put in an installment that included a plaque on a metal pole to remember the officers. After a car crash that wiped out the sign, family members want to know where is it and why hasn't it been put back up.

“It feels like a lifetime ago, yet it feels like just yesterday,” said Terra Smiley, when speaking of her husband, Shawn.
