ISU police issue warning to students

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State University police are cautioning students about accepting rides from people they don’t know as the result of an incident that occurred Aug. 30

On Thursday, the male student reported to ISU police that at about 3 a.m. Aug. 30, he was approached by an unknown man while he was walking in the area of Eighth and Elm streets, according to an ISU public safety crime alert.  

The student said the man asked him if he wanted a ride home. The student accepted the ride but demanded to be let out of the car when he realized the driver was not taking him home. The driver refused and traveled east on Locust Street.

 The student reported that, after struggling with the driver, he was able to exit the vehicle, an older white convertible, in the area of 25th and Locust streets. The student received scratches on his arm in the struggle, but was not otherwise injured.

The driver of the vehicle is described as a white male 25 to 30 years old, about 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, with brown hair and a beard.

Anyone having any information concerning this incident is asked to contact ISU Police at 812-237-5555.

“Everyone is reminded to be extremely cautious when approached by strangers for any reason and not to accept rides from persons they do not know under any circumstances,” according to the ISU public safety release.
