Suspicious Man Asks Randolph Macon Students For Money
Ashland, VA—Randolph Macon College officials are investigating, after a man claiming he was just released from prison interacted with students at various locations on campus on Friday.
The man appeared on campus on January 18, and approached at least three different students, asking for money, a ride to the store, and even a toothbrush.
While the unidentified man did not make any threats against students when he talked with them, school officials say he appeared intoxicated in each instance. He has appeared at a student residence hall and Estes Dining Hall.
Unshaven and wearing a long gray or black coat, the man may go by the nickname "Old School." He weighs approximately 250 pounds, has short, gray hair, and may have a scar on his forehead.
School officials are urging students not to give the man a ride, or allow him inside any buildings on campus. The school sent out a notification about this individual on Friday, and sent an email to students, saying "The Office of Campus Safety is dedicated to promoting a safe and secure environment for living, working and visiting."
