Timely notification: Stalking poses possible threat to the community
Kansas State University Police are giving notice of a disturbing act of violence reported to have occurred near campus.
A female student reported an instance of stalking near the campus. The suspect is described as a white male with a stocky build and short, dark hair. He was impersonating a police officer when he made contact with the student.
The student reported that the suspect followed her, posed as a police officer, and drove a vehicle designed to look like an unmarked police vehicle.
No arrests have been made. It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the university community.
Kansas State University Police advises members of the campus community to:
- Report crimes immediately when they occur.
- Report any suspicious activity.
- If concerned about the legitimacy of a police officer, call and confirm his or her identity through their police agency; request a uniformed officer in a marked police vehicle; and/or request official identification.
