ATLANTA, Ga. (WSB-TV) -- All three people suspected in an armed robbery inside a Georgia State University dorm room have been arrested.

GSU police Deputy Chief Carlton Mullis identified the suspects as Quinton Arnold, 18, Dantevious Devall Patrick, 18, and Dorian Demetrius Stroud, 19. Arnold is a current student, Stroud is a former student and Patrick has no affiliation with the university, GSU spokeswoman Andrea Jones said.

Authorities said just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, one of the men knocked on a dorm door in the University Commons building, while two others pointed a gun at their victims.

The robbers left with an iPad and cellphones.

One man was arrested Wednesday night. Two more were apprehended Thursday morning.
Mullis said that one of the victims recognized Arnold, who also lives in the University Commons complex. That victim texted Arnold and asked him to meet him outside on Piedmont Avenue. “He did, and we arrested him,” Mullis said.

Video cameras placed all over the University Commons building recorded footage of the three armed robbers.

Police later released a photo of the suspects from security video. Patrick “saw himself on the video and called Atlanta police and turned himself in and APD turned him over to us,” according to Mullis.

He said Stroud’s mother recognized her son from the video photo “and she brought him in to GSU police about 6 a.m.”

She has done what EVERY mom and/or dad should do when their kid is ruining their life. That old saying, "I gave you life, and I cant take you out" really does NOT mean a mom can kill her child, it means SHUT UP AND LISTEN to your momma, she can GUIDE YOU OUT for the rest of your life so you can be a decent, moral and happy productive human being before your life goes back to God, where it came. That is love. just as this mom who turned her son in.... plain and simple, unconditional love.

Good for the Mother who was decent enough to turn her child over to authorities. You don't see that everyday.

How freaking stupid and what a waste... I DONT hate to say this; I am sure a white kid that got passed over to meet some minimum criteria for black students would NOT have gone and robbed the people in the place he lived... hang on is that really the way it went down? did these idiots WANT to get busted? Did they have a homework assignment they didnt do and did not know about the "Im sick and cant come to class" trick so being from the ghetto, they knew the "I robbed someone and now I am going to jail for 10-20" trick instead I suppose. Oh well, I guess the division between "urban" and "Non-urban" kids really is growing quite a bit more than we really knew! Good riddance stupids, at least you didnt kill anyone before you went to prison for a few decades!
