UPDATE: Person of Interest - posted on 02/25/13

Public Safety is asking the PSU community to be on the lookout for a 32 year old, white, male, who has been preying on students under the guise of being a magazine subscription salesman. The suspect, who goes by the name Nickolas, approaches female students and tells them variations of a story about how he is selling magazine subscriptions through Z100 radio in order to win a trip. Nickolas is thin, about 6’2” tall, brown hair, has been seen wearing a stocking cap, and has tattoos on both wrists.

We are asking for anyone who has bought a magazine subscription from this magazine "salesman", on or around campus, to come forward and contact CPSO at 503-725-4407.

If you are contacted by, or observe Nickolas, please politely decline his “sales” pitch and call Campus Public Safety at 503-725-4404.
