A Galesburg resident has been banned from campus after having been arrested for State Disorderly Conduct. The man, Kyle Hernandez was arrested on May 15, 2014 and has been issued a banned on campus warning due to his association with some Knox members, Director of Campus Safety John Schlaf announced in an email.
Galesburg Police Department initially contacted Hernandez when he expressed suicidal and homicidal thoughts. He initially was not arrested because the officer involved “did not feel that Hernandez was a danger to himself at that time.” He was ultimately arrested after contacting a Knox student on social media and was transported to Knox County Jail, according to police reports.
Campus Safety and GPD will be patrolling Knox and nearby areas, and community members are encouraged to contact Campus Safety if they see the man on campus.
