A young Black woman is speaking out after police officers stormed into her dorm room at Stephen F. Austin State University with their guns drawn.

A resident adviser had called campus police after three white several white students alleged that Christin Evans, who is Black, had threatened them. In the early hours of 14 September, a group of around ten female students told a resident adviser that Evans had threatened to stab them with scissors. The incident was reportedly orchestrated by Evans’ three white roommates.

The adviser was quickly on the phone to the police.

The raid took place at 3am raid at the Nacogdoches, Texas campus — and soon after, Texas police learned that the allegations made against Evans were false.

Her family believes the false report was racially motivated.

“I want justice,” her mother, LaShondra Evans, said at the news conference. “I want them to have consequences. They played with her life.”

SFA President Scott Gordon said in a statement to The Post that the university is taking the situation seriously and that “judicial processes take time.”

“Each perpetrator will be dealt with appropriately,” Gordon added. “My heart goes out to the young lady who was an innocent victim in this matter. We will do all we can to support her and her family through this heinous ordeal.”

“This could have been a Breonna Taylor circumstance,” her attorney Randall Kallinen said at the news conference.

Evans has now moved into a new dorm and is continuing to take her classes online. She says the event was traumatic.

“I feel shaken. I don’t even know how to think,” she said. “I can’t sleep at night because of this. It has made me really paranoid.”
