ttorney Charles Branson said Thursday there was insufficient evidence to file a charge “at this time” against a man accused of stalking a woman on the Kansas University campus.
KU Public Safety officers arrested the 25-year-old Lawrence man Tuesday night at Stauffer Place apartment complex and accused him of stalking the woman from June 22 through Tuesday night by sending email messages and making other forms of contact. The suspect had been warned to stop, but he was arrested after the 19-year-old female KU student reported the stalking continued, KU police said.
The man, also a KU student, was held in jail Wednesday and Thursday morning as prosecutors were deciding about filing formal charges. Branson said his office has not asked for further information in the case.
