ROCK HILL, S.C. – Winthrop University police have arrested a Rock Hill man in connection with a March 26 assault of a student outside of Kinard Hall.

Arrested at his home on Monday afternoon, Loyd Alan Price, 50, of 219 Columbia Ave., was charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. Authorities said that during the incident, a man grabbed a student by the shoulder as she exited the building after an evening class and pushed her against a wall.

"This type of incident is very uncommon on our campus and because of the cooperation we received from the community, an arrest was made," said Chief Frank Zebedis. His office alerted the campus through e-mails and fliers to let students, faculty and staff know about the assault.
