Buffalo, NY – University at Buffalo Police issued an alert Sunday afternoon as they searched the South Campus for a black male who escaped custody after being arrested for loitering.

UB Police say the suspect has a handcuff on his left wrist. He is wearing jeans with a rope belt and T-shirt. He was last spotted in the vicinity of the Sherman Parking Lot.

But UB Police have received information that the suspect was last seen running away from campus and across Grover Cleveland Golf Course shortly after his escape at 12:35 p.m.

Police have concluded an extensive search, and the suspect is no longer believed to be on campus. Area law enforcement agencies have been notified to be on the lookout for the suspect.

UB Police ask citizens to call 645-2222 if you have seen him.

UB has also issued text alerts and emails to students and staff.
