SAN JOSE -- A man was pistol-whipped and robbed Thursday night by a trio of female assailants at San Jose State University, according to campus police.

A man who police say was not affiliated with the school was sitting in a lawn area near the Tommie Smith and John Carlos statues when around 8 p.m. he was approached by three women, said Capt. Frank Belcastro of the University Police Department.

One of the women pulled out what appeared to be revolver and hit the man in the head and face, then took his backpack and laptop computer, Belcastro said.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated for injuries not considered life threatening.

Police offered vague descriptions of the attackers, who the victim said were all black women: one with a red shirt, blue jeans and a lip piercing, one wearing a black shirt, dark jeans and a black cap, and one wearing a black shirt.

Belcastro said police are examining "all available evidence at this point," including surveillance video.
