COLUMBUS -- OSU students are re-thinking their plans as they head out at night with a fugitive on the loose.

Michael Tarpeh, who calls himself BiggggggMike on Twitter, has not been captured.

He's wanted in three states on serious charges including armed robbery and attempted sexual assault.

"We're taking the bus instead of walking down High Street," said OSU freshman Kate Mendiola Friday night.

Tarpeh is also on the minds of people who work at campus area bars.

OSU Student Safety Services even reminded people about its escort service for those who don't want to walk home alone.
