On June 28, 2016, at approximately 6pm, Public Safety & Police responded to a call on the second floor of the Careers Building for an adult male who was harassing female students.  Speaking with witnesses, officers learned that the suspect had been acting strange and may have touched an isolated female student in an inappropriate manner.  A witness, who had been watching the suspect’s behavior and saw him touch the student, assisted in leading her away from the suspect and called campus public safety.  The victim left prior to public safety’s arrival but based on the witness description, the suspect was located a short time later outside of Careers near the Quad.  County Police were called to assist with the investigation and were familiar with the suspect, identified as Paul McDaniel, from previous encounters.  McDaniel was subsequently arrested by the county police for acting disorderly and refusing to provide identification.  Additionally, McDaniel was issued a college No Trespass Order by campus police. 

Public Safety & Police are still attempting to identify the victim student and request anyone having knowledge about this subject or incident should please contact Officer Kerpelman or Lieutenant Mauk at 410-777-1818.
