A man was arrested outside of Walker Center for Arts and Sciences Monday morning.
The man had been approaching students and making them uncomfortable by asking several questions, according to campus police. Police arrested the man after a student reported him.
This had been going on since last week Campus police was made aware of this issue by a student’s father on April 20, said Bradd Brown, chief of police. However, the man was arrested for driving under suspension, an unrelated traffic violation.
The man is not affiliated with the university.
The man was spotted once that morning, and then he left campus. When he was seen on campus later that same morning, campus police arrived and arrested him. His car was towed off campus.
There is an outstanding warrant, but no charges. The man received a notice to vacate university premises, threatening arrest if he were to return to campus.
Brown said the man didn’t technically commit any crimes on campus other than the traffic violation, he’s glad that campus police were able to identify him for the future’s sake.
“We were glad to get him identified because that is the second call that we’ve had on him,” he said. “If he returns to campus after being given the notice, he will be arrested.”
