Stony Brook University police are looking for suspects in a robbery early Friday near the O'Neil College.

Assistant Chief Neil Farrell said a male student was attacked from behind at about 1:30 a.m. by possibly two men who took the victim's iPhone.

The student had scratches on his arm but refused medical attention at the scene, Farrell said.

The investigation is continuing, he said.
