Kansas University police issued a crime bulletin Thursday, after a man tried to lure a woman into his car near Memorial Stadium.

Police said the incident occurred about 7:20 a.m. in the area of 11th and Mississippi.

The woman was jogging in the area, when the driver of a white vehicle stopped and told her to get in, police said, but the victim refused. The suspect left after a pedestrian in the area stopped to help the woman.

Officers released a sketch of the suspect, who is described as a dark-skinned man, about 30 years old, with dark brown or black hair. Anyone with information about the crime should call the KU Public Safety Office at 864-5900 or KU Crimestoppers at 864-8888.

Police are encouraging students to be aware of their surroundings and to walk or jog in groups.

Police are encouraging students to be aware of their surroundings and to walk or jog in groups.

---does not mean *talking on your cellphones, texting while walking/jogging, hitting your blueberries, etc., etc.! shut down the electronics, don't even look at the pda/cellphone for gps FGS!

be aware of your surroundings, make eye contact with anyone you can see, or hear approaching!

this would do much more than lighting!.

or, I can fill in when The Great S [above] can't pencil you into his schedule.


so, if this were on TV, the incredibly hot ravishing beauties who work as female KUPD/LPD/DGSO officers would switch uniforms (seen early in the episode clinging very tightly), for jogging outfits. there'd be a wire, hidden video. of course the young and flighty male cop is backup but his mind wanders and sometimes he just daydreams. but the old gruff and kind watch commander keeps things on track anyway.
finally, the perp is caught after much danger, theme music and commercials.

All you people want to do is talk about it, i say "plug 'em". don't let their sorry existence go on another day. Jesus, you take your trash to the curb every day, why don't you do with the human trash. Oh, that's just mean. Welcome to America.

I would like to volunteer to jog with young attractive women for safety. I am a very civic minded person.

Somebody please define dark-skinned.

When I think dark-skinned, I think "not white." Maybe brown, olive, red, yellow, black, etc. - but not white.

Yet that rendering looks like a white guy to me. If the police and media are going to use "dark-skinned" when they mean "tan," the public needs to know. Otherwise, how will anyone ever be able to identify the suspect when they see him?

From the composite, it looks like Max Headroom may have died his hair and went tanning before committing this crime.

Uh, mexican is not a race, not even an ethnicity for that matter.

I'm getting tired of all the "dark skinned" jargon. Please just say his race. Dark skinned white guy, black, or mexican. Please be a little more descriptive.

Marion,

I think they use it when the victim can't tell if the dude was black or hispanic.

"Dark skinned"?

Is that a new PC euphemism or what?

Thanks for that insightful analysis of what might be, akt2...now let's catch this perv. and take him "off the road"

I'd think a 22 or even a 45 might take care of that dark haired problem.

I think that he must have a job. He might work in the area, and he might get off at 7a. It seems like a perv might rather troll for victims after work, then on the way to work. If he was a deadbeat he wouldn't be out of bed at 7a.

I saw a guy around 30 years old and dark skinned just the other day, and by golly he even had dark hair. I bet he is the only guy in town with that description. (sic)

Here you go udk_brandon: http://www2.ljworld.com/videos/2009/a...

Not sure if that's a crossover vehicle though. It's a hatchback, and when I hear crossover, I think of an Outback or something.

University Police said it was a "crossover" vehicle, although that could mean a number of different cars.

Does anyone know where I could find the video from the Sunset Hill Incident?

Your right hujiko! Have the police investigated this angle about it being the same guy that was exposing himself at Sunset Hill Elementary in the evenings a few weeks back. Does anyone have a description of the car other than it is white. They have the car on video from the Sunset Hill incident!

Weirdest looking composite ever. Seriously, can't someone over there learn how to use the softening or blending tools?
