BOULDER, Colo. – A woman who was seen on video making racist comments toward students at the University of Colorado Boulder has been arrested on a misdemeanor harassment charge, police said Friday.

Rebekah Krajacic, 33, was taken into custody after campus police were notified that she was in the library at the Benson Earth Sciences building.

Krajacic, who was booked into the Boulder County Jail, is not a CU Boulder student or employee.

In a video posted to social media Sunday, Krajacic was seen engaging in a verbal altercation with a male student, who she accused of stalking her. She was then heard calling the man videotaping the incident the N-word.

The incident took place in the Engineering Center on campus. During the confrontation, a third man walks up and warns the man and Krajacic that he’s going to call campus police.

After the video surfaced, CU President Mark Kennedy released a statement saying the university was launching an investigation into the incident. Police also served Krajacic an exclusion notice from the campus during her arrest Friday.

CU police said they had received reports that other people on campus have had negative interactions with Krajacic.
