Kapiolani Community College students were alerted after an alleged stalking incident on campus.

The UH alert says officials received reports from a student regarding an alleged stalking incident that occurred in the Lama Library on Tuesday between 3:15 and 3:45 p.m.

Students received the email alert Wednesday morning.

"I don't see anyone like conscience about guys walking around and and people being scared -- it's just normal," said Rosa Moral, a KCC student.

"I'm not sure we know how to respond to this because this has never really happened. I've never expected or heard of anybody doing that -- and so I don't think we all know how to react," Landon Deniz said.

The individual was described as a male caucasian who was wearing a gray shirt and carrying a tan backpack. Students say the description is so vague it isn't very helpful.

"Not really cause that could be anyone with a backpack, clothes, white person, you know? There's a lot of those people here," said Amber Miles.

Student say they wished they had more information.

Hawaii News Now reached out to University of Hawaii officials with KCC and have not heard back from them.
