UL Lafayette student uses social media to warn others after watching man follow another student home


A UL Lafayette student used social media Wednesday to share her story warning others about what she described as an attempted kidnapping near campus. 

In a series of tweets, the student said she watched a man closely follow a “blond” female student to her Lamar Street home and then walk away.

She said the man did not appear to be a college student and had a white cloth in his hand as if he was gonna use it to cover someone’s face. 

Police were contacted, according to the student, who also said she knocked on the “blond” students door to make her aware of what she had just witnessed, but there was no answer.

KLFY reached out to the UL Lafayette Police Spokesperson for comment.

According to the UL Lafayette Police Department’s Public Information Officer, Lt. Billy Abrams, the University Police CUSP Unit located and questioned a man fitting the description; however, the man denied any involvement.

Information was turned over to the Lafayette Police Department and Sheriff’s Office for further investigation.
