MPD arrests man for stalking student, failure to appear in court

A Metropolitan Police Department officer arrested a man Tuesday for stalking a student and failure to appear in court for unlawful entry.

A GW Police Department officer reported to MPD that a female student was stalked at about 12:20 p.m. after leaving the West End Library. The student told an MPD officer that the subject “looked at her” and walked about a quarter mile behind her as she was leaving the library, according to the MPD report.

When the student arrived at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, the subject said, “I’m watching you” to the student, the report states. The subject stood a block away when MPD officers interviewed the student, according to the report.

The MPD officer approached the subject, who identified himself as Kwan Cobb, and found that he had five outstanding bench warrants from the D.C. Superior Court for unlawful entry into the GW Hospital, according to the report.

The officers arrested Cobb for stalking and the bench warrants and transported him to the Second District police station for processing, according to the report.
