DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Parents in the Dallas ISD were warned Monday of another armed robbery near an Oak Cliff school campus.

Parents at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center got a letter detailing the March 8 incident in which a student was robbed at gunpoint after classes were dismissed. The student handed over their backpack and was not hurt. 

The principal at Townview is warning parents, telling them to remind their children to be aware of their surroundings and keep their cellphones hidden.

The letter made reference to recent armed robberies around Oak Cliff schools. Two men, ages 17 and 18, confessed to police about their involvement in some cases. The two were arrested March 7, a day before the incident at Townview.

Dallas police said the investigation into the robberies is ongoing. Security and police patrols were increased at all campuses involved in the cases.​
