SALT LAKE CITY — A man was arrested for stalking and trespassing after two women reported him “aggressively following and harassing them at the Marriott Library,” according to University of Utah Police.
The man was identified as 40-year-old Anietie Umoren, who had outstanding warrants for his arrest and is a registered sex offender.
According to a statement from the university, the warrants for his arrest stem from his refusal to comply with Utah’s sex offender law.
The women reported both seeing and interacting with him multiple times on campus, including in the Union Building and University Store, beginning on May 31.
University Police transported Umoren to the Salt Lake County Jail, where he remains in custody.
The University release states, “The university has issued a no trespass directive to Umoren barring him from returning to campus. Any member of the community who sees Umoren on campus should call University Police at 801-585-2677.
The university is in the process of pursuing a more permanent “campus ban.””
