INDIVIDUAL WHO HAD BEEN BANNED FROM CAMPUS ARRESTED AND CONFINED IN JAIL

MANHATTAN -- About 5 p.m. yesterday, Wednesday, Aug. 26, the Kansas State University police department received information that an individual who was banned from campus last spring, and who was under a criminal investigation, had returned to Manhattan.

Last night, about 9:30 p.m., K-State Police arrested Borong Liu, a former K-State English Language Program student. He is confined in the Riley County Jail on $10,000 bond. His arrest was the result of an ongoing investigation of criminal threats to individuals.

As a precaution, the English Language Program that offered services to him suspended classes today, but classes will resume tomorrow. 

Pat Bosco, dean of student life, said, "The cancelling of classes was a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and security of those threatened."

Last spring, the investigation centered on threats to specific individuals, not to the campus community, said K-State Police Capt. Don Stubbings.
