GSU students alarmed by man’s conduct

A Dallas, Texas, man was arrested on the Grambling State University campus Thursday after he allegedly made sexual comments to a group of female students.

Several GSU officers near the McCall Dining Hall were approached by five female students Thursday night. The students said a man made several sexual comments toward them including sexual acts he wanted to perform.

Another man had approached the women and warned them that the suspect had been recording them on his phone.

Officers spotted the suspect, but he fled on foot and was not apprehended at the time.

The suspect, James C. Williams, 31, later entered the GSU Police station where he was arrested. He denied saying anything sexual to the women. He admitted recording a “TikTok” video.

Williams was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for disturbing the peace and criminal mischief.
