PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland State University wants people to be on the lookout for a man accused of making violent threats against the PSU community.

Campus Public Safety Office said Asish Nand Sharma has a warrant for his arrest and faces charges related to an assault on campus.

Sharma is also accused of making threats to shoot the assault victim and law enforcement.

According to Washington County Sheriff's Office, Sharma trespassed and was banned from all PCC campuses back in 2014. He was a student at PCC and is accused of stalking an ex-girlfriend, who was also a student.

Officials said Sharma has a long criminal history with eight convictions dating back to 2001.

PSU students expressed their concern for their safety.

"We do live in a city and it's pretty scary knowing there's somebody out there that could potentially be a danger to us," said student Araceli Guzman. "It's kind of alarming especially since we live on campus."

Sharma is 5'8", 190 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen driving a Champagne Honda Accord with Oregon license plate NNK552.

If you see Sharma on campus, please call 911.
