Crime alert issued at UNC for man with history of assault


A campus alert was sent out to both students and faculty about Christopher Deas Friday. Deas has pending criminal charges against him right now in three counties. He was arrested just this week again, and is now out on bond.

UNC Public Safety is warning students and staff that Deas could be on the prowl and should be considered a potentially dangerous person.

The 37-year-old has been banned from the Chapel Hill campus as well as UNC-Greensboro, but public safety says still he "is known to return to and frequent the campuses"

Just this week, Deas was charged with two counts of assault on a female.

UNC-Greensboro police say he crawled under a table at the school's library and began feeling women's feet. Then in 2011, at UNC-Chapel Hill, police say Deas walked inside classrooms and also was touching women's feet.

Police say he has a history of assault. They believe he drives a Honda Civic with North Carolina license plate ZSP-3472.

Public Safety asking anyone who sees him on campus or around Chapel Hill to call 911.
