A staff member reported Monday that her supervisor touched and spoke to her inappropriately between 2 and 4 p.m. that day in the John W. Tyson Center of Excellence for Poultry Science, according to the UAPD Daily Crime Log.

Harassment includes behavior such as offensive physical contact, obscene language and gestures, insults or following a person in or about a public place, according to the Arkansas Statute on Harassment.

Harassment is a Class A misdemeanor, according to the Arkansas Statute on Harassment. 

“Of course, this is a crime that the only evidence would be testimonial evidence,” UAPD Capt. Gary Crain said. “So you would do the interview with the victim and get all the facts from them and then interview the person that’s accused and get all the facts from them. Now if there were any witnesses, that could help. If there were any cameras in the area, that can help. You just have to follow what’s available to you.”

This is the tenth report of harassment UAPD has received in 2019, according to the UAPD Daily Crime Log.

Miranda Stith is a news editor for the Arkansas Traveler, where she previously worked as a reporter from 2018-2019.
