BRIEF DETAILS:

On February 13, 2019, at approximately 1:37 a.m., the University of Maryland Police Department responded to Hagerstown Hall for a suspicious male. A female UMD student reported to police that a male was trying to enter multiple rooms. Officers responded and located an intoxicated male in the lobby of the building along with the reporting person. After talking with the student and reviewing the video footage taken by the student during their interaction with the suspect, the male was taken into custody. Officers interviewed additional victims and a witness in this matter. Based upon the investigation, the male has been charged with multiple counts that can be viewed here.

Due to the quick reporting of suspicious behavior by our student resident, an apprehension was made in this case. Thank you to our student resident who said something when they saw something suspicious.
