Defense Against Crime


Aggravated Assault averted with Pepper Spray

I’ve written before the College Students are a miniature version of society at large, and while many think that students are 012612_1935_DoesPepperS1.jpgsafe from the criminal elements of society, reality says different.
We often share events of actual crimes so that college students can take the necessary countermeasures to stay safe.

From College Of Charleston (Charleston, SC)

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), the College of Charleston issues timely notices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus. In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act, the Department of Public Safety is informing the College of Charleston campus community of an off-campus assault.

Incident:  Aggravated Assault

Date:  11-24-2014

Reported to:    College Of Charleston Department of Public Safety (Report # 14 – 20186)

Suspects’ status:  At Large

Incident description:  The victim was walking to a vehicle parked in the area of Charlotte Street and Concord Street. The suspect struck the victim with an elbow while the victim was leaning over and then struck the victim in the face, possibly with glass. The victim fought back spraying the suspect with pepper spray. The suspect fled the scene.

Important Message:  It is important to note that the victim/survivor is never the cause of the criminal offense.  The College does not tolerate this behavior.

Public Safety Tips:

  • Avoid confrontation with individuals you encounter.
  • Avoid becoming involved in incidents you observe.
  • Use well-lit- routes, avoid dark vacant areas, and those not frequented by other people
  • Avoid walking alone at night.
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Avoid distractions like talking on your cell phone.
  • If you observe unusual activity, try to remember details as best you can.
    • For example, what a person was wearing or any other identifiers like scars, tattoos or shoes.
  • Please always be aware of your surroundings, avoid walking alone at night, and notify Law Enforcement immediately if you observe potentially dangerous situations or individuals.
