LSU investigating attempted kidnapping

LSU Police were notified on Aug. 25th of an attempted kidnapping/simple assault that happened earlier in the day on campus near Acadian Hall.

LSU Police met with the victim, who ordered food from a delivery service, and the encounter with the delivery person led to attempted kidnapping/simple assault.

This remains an active investigation. If you have any information related to the incident, please contact LSU Police. Submit anonymous information to LSU Police or call directly at 225-578-3231. 

This incident is unrelated to the second degree kidnapping that was reported earlier this week, which is still under investigation and should be nearing a conclusion. 

As a result of the victim in this case using appropriate protocols, the delivery driver is being identified. Some important safety tips to remember when using a rideshare or delivery service is to confirm the name of the driver and make of the vehicle, utilize these services with others present, and report all crimes (actual, attempted or suspected) to the police immediately.
