At approximately 9:30 p.m. today, a CU student called CU Police to report a possible kidnapping near the Benson Earth Sciences Building. The witness said at around 9:15 p.m. he saw a white male in a dark-colored hoodie get out of a car and point what appeared to be a handgun at a black male wearing jeans, a blue shirt and possibly a backpack. The suspect and victim got in the back seat of the car, which then sped off to the east on Colorado Avenue past Folsom Street.

CU Police continue to investigate this incident and sent an email alert to students, faculty and staff shortly after 11 p.m., asking for assistance. CU Police ask anyone who witnessed or has information on this incident to call CU Police Dispatch at 303-492-6666.
