EDMOND, Okla. -- Police surrounded a University of Central Oklahoma dorm Friday as they tried to serve a warrant to a student.

Police were attempting to serve a warrant on Nathan "Nate" Alvarez. He's accused of sexually assaulting and kidnapping a juvenile.

Police had reason to believe Alvarez was inside and armed so officers from Edmond, Oklahoma City and the campus police department surrounded Murdaugh Hall, guns drawn and ordered him to surrender.

After learning Alvarez somehow slipped out of the building police canvassed the campus and neighborhoods. Officers ended their search on campus around 8 p.m.

Students were surprised to learn the criminal justice freshman was an accused criminal.

"He's a cool little guy," said Michael Newberg, Alvarez's roommate. "He's a freshman here. He's 19."

Police told Newberg about his roommate earlier in the day.

"They first asked me "Are you afraid of him?" Newberg said. "I said no. He's scrawny. He's small, and he doesn't have weapons."
