LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

An arrest warrant has given us a closer look into what happened the night four men were robbed at gunpoint. Three of the victims were Texas Tech University students.

The incident happened on 30th and Nashville Avenue on April 3rd. Since then, the two suspects have been released from jail.

Steven Caldwell, 19, has been charged with aggravated robbery and Shane Taylor has been charged with theft. The warrant does not list Taylor's age.

The warrant says three Texas Tech students, along with one of their friends who was visiting, were on their way to Whataburger to get something to eat.

Before they could pull out of their driveway, the arrest warrant says two black males approached the truck wearing hoodies, bandanas, ski masks, sunglasses and gloves. The suspects opened the driver and passenger doors and shoved guns to the victims' heads. The victims told police that the suspects began demanding money, electronics and other valuables.

One of the victims lived in the house where the assault took place. One of the suspects ordered him to get valuables from inside his house. The suspect said he didn't want to go into the house because he was afraid of the dog.

The resident's girlfriend was inside the house at the time. The resident told her to hide in his room and call the police. The resident grabbed a shotgun from inside his house and headed back towards the carport.

One of the suspects had one of his friends in a choke hold with a handgun to his head. The resident was worried that his friend might get hurt so he put the shotgun down.

The suspects heard sirens in the distance, got spooked, and ran away with the iPad.

Police found Caldwell walking around in the same area with the iPad on him the next day.
