Campus police makes arrest in connection with assault on campus


Around 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, university police arrested Jason Seifert of Fort Riley, on charges of rape, aggravated battery and aggravated kidnapping.

According to a press release, at 2:55 a.m., Kansas State Police were dispatched to the Denison corridor on the west side of campus to respond to an “active situation.”

A victim was then transported to a local hospital, the report says.

Michelle Geering, university Public Information Officer, said an arrest was made while university police were still on the scene.

Seifert is detained at the Riley County Jail. His bond is set at $100,000.

The K-State Police crime log says the incident is still under investigation.
