Two juveniles were arrested after a reported armed robbery and chase on Mercer University's campus Wednesday.
University spokesman Larry Brumley says it happened around 12:30 p.m.
He said two students confronted two juvenile boys who were breaking into a vehicle in a campus parking lot.
Brumley said the two boys ran off and the two students chased them.
They contacted campus police and kept them up to date on the juveniles' whereabouts.
One of the intruders was quickly arrested.
The other turned and pointed a gun at one of the students and demanded money.
The student ducked away, Brumley said, and the gunman ran off.
He said the boy with the gun was caught a few minutes later behind a loading dock at the university's dining hall, and the gun was found nearby under some pine straw.
