Suspect ID’ed, charged after assault on ECU Campus


GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – 29-year-old Keith Dominique Blunt is charged with trespassing after an assault was reported on ECU’s campus.

According to ECU Police Lieutenant Chris Sutton, Blunt was banned from campus back in July after he was seen over a few days trying to access locked buildings. Blunt is not a student or employee.

He was caught in July by ECU Police during a children’s camp trying to get into a locked building, according to Sutton.

Police say after Friday night’s assault, Blunt ran away from campus but came back when he realized a called ID’ed him.

ECU Police caught Blunt on campus later Friday night after someone else called in and ID’ed him.

Sutton says this is a perfect example of, “If you see something, say something”, crediting the victim and other people on campus who called in to identify Blunt.
