Timely warning about attempted robbery

Monday, March 30, 2015


In compliance with the timely notice provision of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, the Kansas State University Police Department is giving notice of an act of violence that occurred on campus. 

At approximately 1:45 p.m. Monday, March 30, K-State police responded to an attempted robbery that had occurred at about noon Monday, March 30. The crime's reported location was in the D-1 parking lot, which is by West Stadium.

The male victim reported an unknown Hispanic male, 5-feet-8-inches tall with brown hair in his late 20s, wearing a gray shirt and khakis, approached the victim and demanded his property. The victim was battered by the suspect and the suspect fled the area. The victim received minor injuries and refused medical attention. No weapons were used or displayed in this robbery attempt. 

The K-State Police Department asks that any witnesses to this crime call the department at 785-532-6412. Tips may also be sent to the silent witness website at https://www.ksu.edu/police/silent/ or through the Live Safe app.

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.

K-State police advise members of the campus community to:

• Report crimes immediately when they occur.

• Report any suspicious activity.

• Use campus safety resources.

The K-State Police Department is in 108 Edwards Hall.
