BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – 42-year-old Benjamin Bryson was arrested and charged with Cyberstalking Electronic Mail – Misdemeanor after a recent investigation by LSU Police.

According to the affidavit, Bryson was spotted taking photographs of vehicles in a parking lot on Sorority Row last month.

Bryson was located by LSU Police and the 42-year-old stated that he “was getting Bluetooth interference in the area but could not explain why he was there.”

Later in the month, a different sorority contacted LSU Police.

The affidavit states that the LSU Police Department was told that “several members had recently received weird Instagram messages.”

LSU PD learned through further investigation that Bryson had also contacted “other members of the LSU Greek System.”

According to the affidavit, a victim subsequently met with LSU Police and provided details about being personally contacted by Bryson while walking around the LSU Lakes.

The victim provided details about the vehicle that the suspect was driving at that time.

In total, the victim said Bryson made contact with her three separate times on that occasion.

That victim says she was later contacted via Instagram and Facebook messenger by the suspect.

The 42-year-old was arrested on November 12.

Bryson was then released from the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on $5,000 bond.
