A Free State student at Central University of Technology has died from injuries sustained during a robbery.

The 23-year-old student was with a friend, a University of Free State student, when they met the suspects as they were walking from a local shop on the corner of John Knox and Calvyn streets on Saturday night.

Police spokesman Lt. Col. Thabo Covane said the suspects were driving a white early-model Mercedes-Benz.

Two men from the vehicle assaulted the students and stole one of the students’ laptop and toiletry bag.

The other student was seen lying motionless in the middle of the street. He was bleeding from a wound to the back of his head, Covane said.

The attackers got into their car and fled the scene.

The student was pronounced dead at the hospital. The police investigate a case of robbery and murder.
