Man with 25 throwing stars arrested on Cal State Fullerton campus, police say

A 34-year-old man wanted on multiple warrants, including those related to sexual assault and assault on a law enforcement officer, was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of trespassing in a Cal State Fullerton building, campus police said.

And he was apparently in possession of throwing stars, police said.

The man was being held on $21,500 bail, according to jail records.

Campus police on patrol saw a door slam at Mihaylo Hall about 12:35 a.m. Thursday, June 1, and spotted the man exiting the building, Cal State Fullerton police Capt. Scot Willey said. Mihaylo Hall is in the southeastern quadrant of campus, adjacent to Nutwood Avenue.

Most of the faculty and students are on summer vacation.

“We’re not even sure how he got in unless he was there before they locked up,” Willey said. “That’s not uncommon. We have people prop doors open. It’s a constant challenge all the time.”

Police intended to cite him for just trespassing so they asked him for his identification, but he tossed his wallet at them and ran off, Willey said. The man apparently had five outstanding warrants, including the ones related to assault, as well as burglary and theft, Willey said.

Possessing throwing stars on a school campus, meanwhile, is a felony, Willey said. The man had 25 on him, the police captain said. The patrol officers also said the man had what appeared to be methamphetamine, Willey said.
