ECU Students React To Kidnapping On Campus

We spoke to 3 freshmen women who say they walk to the parking lot on Reade and Third street in Greenville at least twice a week, sometimes at night. It's the same parking lot where a female student was kidnapped Monday. The daytime kidnapping Monday has many students fearful.

Surveillance video From Monday shows the suspect walking through campus and approaching the victim. The cameras in the lot were obstructed by the trees, so if a gun was shown or not is still under investigation. Students say they feel this type of crime could happen anywhere.

"I feel this kind of thing is something that could happen with someone else too, that someone else could come and do the same thing." said ECU student Christen Quattlebaum.

ECU Police Chief Scott Shelton says officers are increasing their patrols and asked other agencies to help report any suspicious activities.
