According to the online news source nj.com, Officer Kris Kowalczyk said he went to Clementi's room on Sept. 22, 2010 and spoke to Ravi, Clementi's roommate.

According to Kowalczyk, Ravi said the last contact he had with Clementi was around 4:30 or 5 that day, nj.com reports. "The last time that he saw Tyler he had stated that Tyler had come into the room, didn't mention anything unusual, had left the room and didn't state where he was going," Kowalczyk reportedly said.

The testimony from Kowalczyk came on the fifth day of testimony in Ravi's trial. The former Rutgers student is charged with invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and other crimes.

The former captain of Rutgers University's Ultimate Frisbee squad, Jeffry Irving, testified earlier today saying Ravi told him he used a webcam to "capture images of his roommate."

Irving said Ravi seemed uncomfortable with the possibility that his roommate was gay.

The man who prosecutors say was secretly watched via webcam while kissing Clementi in a dorm room has yet to testify.

Testimony ended for the day shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday and is scheduled to continue on Friday morning, nj.com reports.
