Mississippi State University reported an attempted abduction late Wednesday night through its Maroon Alert messaging system.
At 11:39 p.m., the university sent the alert, warning students and alert subscribers of the possible abduction attempt near Sessums Hall, an all-female residence hall. The university later said that at approximately 11 p.m. MSUPD responded to a report from an individual that said they were walking behind Sessums Hall when an unidentified black male â€” described only as wearing a grey shirt â€” reportedly jumped from between two cars and tried to grab them. The university said the victim called for help and a second male responded. The alleged abductor released the victim and fled toward Burger King.
