Man Arrested For Allegedly Posing As Uber Driving And Holding College Women Against Their Will

Police have apprehended Miami resident Farris Kaloti, who allegedly pretended to be an Uber driver and lured women into his car, where he kept them captive.

According to The State, Kaloti was arrested on outstanding warrants, one for assault and the other for domestic violence, both unrelated to his most recent offenses.

Kaloti had been allegedly offering rides to female University of South Carolina students, but took them to unwanted locations and refused to let them leave, pulling them back into the car. Two women reported such incidents to police. One of the women went to a hospital following the incident, where she was treated for minor injuries to her leg.

Police arrested Kaloti after a detective and resident recognized him as a frequent shopper of a local Whole Foods, later stopping him for a traffic violation.

“The reason that police acted immediately is because they wanted to protect the public in case he did

Man Arrested For Threatening To Kill College Students: ‘It’s Not Murder If They’re Black’

A Virginia man was arrested on Wednesday after he made online threats to kill students attending Howard University, a historically black college, WJLA reported.

John Edgar Rust, 26, made the racist threats on 4chan and Reddit, two online message boards, on Nov. 11, 2015, the FBI said in an affidavit.

Rust’s screenname on Reddit was “watchouthoward.” 

His anonymous 4chan post featured a photo of former University of Missouri president Timothy Wolfe, who resigned after a series of racist incidents on the school’s campus.

“Seriously America why are we still putting up with this s**t?” the post allegedly read. “I mean we might as well just bend over and let the n***ers f**k us right in the ass.”

“So I’ve decided,” the post continues later. “Any n***ers left at Howard University after 10 tomorrow will be the first to go. And any of those cheapskate n***ers who try to get out using the metro

College Student Trapped In Cave For Nearly 3 Days Survives By Licking The Walls

A college freshman says he survived a 60-hour stay inside a locked Indiana cave by licking the wall. 

Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar, 19, was on a spelunking trip with 12 others from the school’s caving club to Sullivan Cave, located 10 miles away from Bloomington. At some point in the exploration of the cave, Cavar separated from the group. According to CBS News, club members had padlocked the cave’s gate. Because there was no cell phone signal, the teen reportedly screamed for hours, hoping that somebody on nearby road might hear him.

“It took me a little while to wrangle my emotions and sort of approach things analytically, sensibly, to come up with a game plan to survive,” Cavar said Thursday.

He was rescued on Tuesday. He attempted to pick the padlock with a paper clip, with no success. To survive, he used energy bar wrappers to collect moisture and the

44-Year-Old Man Found Guilty Of Brutally Stabbing Teen Wife To Death In College Bathroom

Armando Perez admitted to fatally stabbing his estranged wife, Diana Gonzalez, in a restroom in San Diego. According to Time, he thanked the jury at his trial.

Perez was convicted of first-degree murder and a special-circumstance allegation of lying in wait. He potentially faces life in prison.

Perez had showed up to his 19-year-old wife’s college class in October of 2010. Her parents, fearing her husband’s violence, had come to pick her up from the City College. A confrontation between Gozales and Perez ensued, during which the former slashed the latter in the face, chest, neck, and genitals. He continued to mutilate her body after she died.

Perez claimed he was driven to murder after seeing Gozales kissing another man outside of class.

“It was me but I just became a monster. I don’t know what happened,” Perez said from the stand. 

According to The San Diego Union Tribune, Gonazels had filed a restraining

Court Allows 21-Year-Old Convicted Rapist To Play In College Football Game

A federal appeals court is allowing a man convicted of sexual assault to continue to play college football this weekend, Crime Online reported, even as his university tried to keep that from happening.

Ma’lik Richmond, 21, was convicted in 2013 of digitally penetrating a heavily intoxicated 16-year-old girl and taking photos of her naked body in the infamous Steubenville, Ohio case, along with his co-perpetrator Trent Mays. The victim apparently only learned that she had been raped through widely circulated social media posts showing her repeated assaults.

Richmond, who was 16 years old at the time, served about 10 months in a juvenile detention center for the crime, according to USA Today. He then returned to his high school football team and later joined the football team of Youngstown State University.

After the ensuing controversy, including a petition started by a Youngstown student, the university decided to block Richmond
