MANHATTAN -- In compliance with the Timely Notice provision of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Kansas State University Police are giving notice of a disturbing act of violence reported to have occurred near campus.

At approximately 2:45 PM on November 27, 2013, the Riley County Police Department responded to a robbery at 1101 Bluemont Avenue; K-State Bank. The suspect entered the building and demanded money from a teller and left on foot westbound from the business. Surrounding agencies were made aware of the incident and police are currently looking for the suspect at this time.

The suspect in this case is a white male in his 20's or 30's who was wearing black gloves and a purple Aeropostale hooded sweatshirt containing the number "87" on its front left corner. He was also wearing grey sweat pants and white athletic shoes with a design that is navy in color. This suspect is approximately 5'7'' and slim in build weighing approximately 150 pounds. It should also be noted that the suspect was wearing an apron around his waist as well as a black t-shirt underneath his hooded sweatshirt.

At this time there is no indication of a weapon being used, however RCPD strongly urges the public not to approach the suspect as he could be considered dangerous.

Those with information about this crime are encouraged to contact RCPD or the Manhattan Riley County Crime Stoppers. When using the Crime Stoppers service, you do not need to leave your name, they do accept collect calls, and you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.00.

It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the university community. It is the duty of the institution to warn of possible "dangerous conditions" on or near the campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus. An "affirmative duty" exists to warn persons associated with the university of possible peril at the hands of some third party or parties.

Kansas State University Police advises members of the campus community to:
  • Report crimes immediately when they occur
  • Report any suspicious activity

The police department is at 108 Edwards Hall.
