Paul Andrew Rouse, 29, of Schaumberg, was arrested on October 13, 2014, at approximately 6:00 PM, at his apartment in the 900 block of S. Third Street.  Rouse is currently being held at the Champaign County Jail. 

The suspect was arrested after Champaign police officers expended significant time and resources following up on leads and processing information obtained during the course of the investigation


Members of the campus community are strongly encouraged to follow these safety tips to decrease their potential for becoming a victim: 

-Stay alert - call the police immediately to report suspicious activity and/or if this subject is observed. 

-Trust your instincts - if it does not feel right, call for help. 

-Avoid walking alone at night. Travel in groups when possible and always walk in well-lit, heavily traveled areas. 

-Turn down your electronic devices. Excessive volume or use of electronic devices (iPods, PDAs, cell phones, etc.) can distract you from potential safety hazards.
