A man and woman robbed three young Green River Community College students at gunpoint Sunday as they waited for a bus on Southeast 316th Street just west of 124th Ave Southeast.

Auburn police said the three victims, all women, told police they were at the bus stop at 10:30 a.m. when the man and woman approached them with a handgun and pepper spray.

The victims described the man as thin, black, in his early 20s, about 6-foot to 6-foot-2. He was wearing a dark colored jacket and jeans. The female is in her early 20's, about 5-foot to 5-5 foot tall, wearing a black jacket and red "Mickey Mouse" pajama bottoms.

Victims gave a description of the suspect vehicle, a Cadillac STS, pictured above, and police are looking for help in identifying and locating it. The car was caught on surveillance cameras in the area around the time of the robbery.
