MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Police say the suspect in a reported sexual assault in Manhattan has been found dead.

The assault occurred early on the morning of Aug. 11 near the campus of Kansas State University, prompting authorities to caution students and the general public against walking alone at night.

Riley County police said Monday that investigators had located a 26-year-old suspect outside their jurisdiction, but the man had died before officers arrived to make an arrest over the weekend.

The man was from northeast Kansas, but police declined to be more precise or to release any details about the death.

Police also said the man was not suspected in any other crimes in the Riley County area.
