Statistics show Darton State College is a safe campus

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

We've got reaction Monday from Darton State College students to an armed robbery on campus.

College police still haven't told us what happened.

We know they issued a lookout for a white Buick Century early Monday afternoon.

Dougherty County Police spotted the car on Highway 82 going into Worth County and stopped it near Sylvester.

Police took two men a woman into custody.

Students said they're shocked.

“I was surprised being that it was so close to the school,” said Caleb Daniel, student.

"That's really scary. Those kinds of things they never happen in Albany, Ga or none that I've ever heard of especially because this campus is usually so safe,” said Tessa Green, Prospective Student.

Students tell us they still feel safe on campus.

Statistics from the U.S. Department of Education show it is a very safe campus.

In 2013, the most recent year available, there was one aggravated assault, one burglary, and two motor vehicle thefts reported on campus.

The stats do list two robberies and one aggravated assault under the category of  public property.
