Security Alert - Student reports incident involving motorcycle rider

UH Mānoa Campus Security said that today, Tuesday, August 7, 2012, at about 6:40 p.m., a UH Mānoa summer student was jogging along Dole Street, when she noticed that a male riding a large black motorcycle was following her.

The motorcycle rider passed the student multiple times on Dole Street as if trying to talk to the jogger, who was wearing earphones.   

The suspect drove his motorcycle into the access road for the Hale Aloha towers, and unsuccessfully tried to reach for the student as she jogged by.  When she ran toward the voices of people nearby, the suspect rode away.

The suspect is described as in his late 20s or early 30s, 6 feet tall, 180 pounds, medium build, with a brown crew-cut, and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.

If you have any information about this incident, call Campus Security at 956-6911 or HPD at 911.
