AUBURN, Ala. (WBRC) - Auburn police are investigating two unrelated reports of suspicious activity that occurred at Auburn University earlier this week.
A Facebook post from Auburn University Campus Safety and Security says the incidents happened on November 11.
The first incident involved a female student who says she was approached near Owen Hall (a residential hall) by a 30- to 40-year-old black male with a heavy limp. In the post, he was described as wearing dark shoes, dark pants and a Hawaiian shirt.
The report says the man motioned for the female student to come toward him and when she didn’t he reached for her. He then followed the student for a few feet toward her vehicle then walked away toward the Student Center.
Police responded but did not locate the man, the report says.
The second incident took place in Draughon Library and involved several females being approached by three young, possibly juvenile, males. The males asked the females to complete a survey, provide their Snapchat information and if they smoke marijuana.
Police responded but did not locate the males, the report says.
In the post, Auburn University Campus Safety and Security says additional information of the incidents are provided to address any questions from the campus community. The post says in part:
“While there is no evidence that the persons involved in these specific incidents attempted to kidnap anyone, all suspicious behavior should be taken seriously and reported immediately so that it can be properly investigated and addressed. As previously mentioned, Auburn Police Division has increased patrols and Campus Safety & Security has increased the number of security officers on campus as a precaution.”
