UWPD seek potential sex assault & threat victims

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- UW-Madison Police are asking for the public to help in identifying potential sexual assault and threat victims.

UWPD arrested 19-year-old Devan McCambridge, of Saukville, May 3rd for threatening a student via Craigslist.  McCambridge posed as a woman, asking women for personal information and explicit photos.  He then attempted to extort sexual favors from whomever would respond, threatening to post pictures and personal information online if they didn't comply.  UWPD worked with the victim in the case to arrange a meeting with McCambridge, where he was then arrested.

McCambridge was charged with third degree sexual assault and threatening a victim.  UWPD believe there are many other victims who fell for McCambridge's scheme.  If you believe you may be a victim or have any information, you are urged to contact UWPD at 605-264-COPS.
