The security guard, Kevin Edwards, detained him until Wenatchee police arrived.
The girl had walking through campus on her way home from a store when a man approached her and started asking her questions. Edwards had noticed both the girl and the man walking through campus in opposite directions and ran toward then when the girl started screaming and trying to get away.
After police arrived, responding to Edwards call for help, the girl's father came to the scene. Police later interviewed the girl.
