CUPD arrests suspect in residence hall cases
Last week, women in four residence halls reported that a man barged into their rooms claiming he needed a place to stay because he was too drunk to get home. Campus police have arrested a suspect on charges involving burglary, trespass, harassment, and unlawful sexual contact. The suspect is not a CU student and his identity is not being released at this time, as additional victims and witnesses are still being contacted. As part of the arrest process, CUPD issued an exclusion order banning the suspect from campus property after his release from jail. For more information, visit the CUPD website.
