Liu alert called off


The alert for Borong Liu, former English Language Program student, has been cancelled due to his no longer being in the Manhattan area.

Liu had been banned from campus last spring. He was arrested last week following an ongoing criminal investigation on threats against individuals.

He was being held at the Riley County Jail on $10,000 bond as a result of the investigation, according to K-State media relations. The campus was placed on alert after Liu posted bail on Tuesday and was taken off alert after it had been confirmed that Liu was no longer in the area.

Captain Don Stubbings of the K-State police department said Liu has left the Manhattan area but could not comment on his current whereabouts.

Stubbings also said he could not comment on why Liu was doing in the Manhattan area last week.

“We’re confident that the K-State community is safe,” Stubbings said.

Although he has left Manhattan, he is still banned from K-State indefinitely and subject to arrest if he returns.
