AU "hate crime" suspect sought.

American University police are investigating a “hate crime” on campus and asking for help identifying the suspect who posted anti-feminist fliers around the school Tuesday.

Students say the offense might have gone unnoticed by the student body if campus police hadn’t issued a crime alert providing surveillance camera photos of the suspect and requesting help finding him.

“It’s good that they called attention to it, because, if they hadn’t, then we probably wouldn’t even have known the posters were put around campus,” one student told Fox 5 DC.

“I was glad that the school reacted to it quick enough, and, I mean, you can interview a bunch of people, a lot of people didn’t even see it,” another student agreed.

Campus police had swiftly removed the fliers, which included a vulgar word and told women to “make a sandwich.” The fliers constitute vandalism, not just a hate crime, since the school did not authorize their posting on campus property.
