Boone police receive report from female of suspicious incident on West King Street

Boone Police Department received a report of an incident that occurred Friday at 12:54 a.m. in the 200 block of West King Street.

Police responded to a call from a female complainant who reported a Hispanic male attempting to engage with her in Spanish on King Street, according to the police report. The complainant then ran to her apartment and heard footsteps behind her but made it inside safely.

The suspect of this incident – approximately 5’4”, heavy set and in his 30s, according to the report – is described similarly to the suspect in a case involving the rape of an Appalachian State student in the 300 block of West King Street on Feb. 24, according to the Tuesday, Feb. 26 issue of The Appalachian.

“At this time it does not appear that a crime was committed; however, we wanted to make the members of our community aware of this situation after what occurred a few weeks ago,” Detective Kat Brackenridge said in the police report. “We cannot say that one incident is related to the other, but we do want people to be alert.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Boone Police Department at 268-6900 or High Country Crime Stoppers at 268-6959.

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
