Arraingment Postponded For Costume Wearing CCSU Student

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) _ A court arraignment has been postponed for a Central Connecticut State University student who set off a campus lockdown and massive police response by wearing a ninja-like costume.

Twenty-one-year-old David Kyem of Newington was scheduled to make his first appearance in the case Thursday at New Britain Superior Court. His lawyer had a scheduling conflict and the hearing was moved to Dec. 11.

Kyem is charged with breach of peace and trespassing.

Campus police say Kyem wore a hooded Halloween costume with a mask, sword and BB handgun on campus Nov. 4. Officials locked down the school for three hours and scores of police including SWAT teams responded. Students were told to get inside and stay away from windows.
School officials say Kyem has since left the school.
