BATON ROUGE - Southern University police have arrested three students accused in an attempted armed robbery and home invasion on campus in late February.

Police booked 18-year-old Jaleel Bridges, of DeQuincy; 20-year-old Rodney Briggs, of Kentwood; and 19-year-old Deylan Jones, of Mesquite, Texas, on counts of attempted armed robbery and home invasion.

Police say the three, along with a fourth student, are accused of breaking into a Ulysses Jones Hall dorm room the night of Feb. 26 and demanding clothes and money from the dorm room's resident at gunpoint.

Police are still looking for the fourth suspects.

It was unclear if the students have attorneys.
