ISU Increases Security at Dorm After Intruder
POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho State University student from Saudi Arabia is being held in a behavioral health center and the school is increasing security after police say the student entered dorm rooms and inappropriately touched occupants.
Pocatello police say a female student reported in February that she awoke to find Sultan Bamoallem touching her back. Police say that on March 10 he followed a student into the women's restroom. Police say Bamoallem got into Nicholas Hall on March 11 by telling a student he forgot his key card.
KIFI-TV reports that the school then banned Bamoallem from campus but police say they found him later that night in Turner Hall. On March 13 police say he entered three dorm rooms and touched occupants. Bamoallem is facing trespassing, battery and stalking charges.
