Dear Campus Community,

I want to inform our campus community regarding the arrest of a man not affiliated with the College who approached two students in two separate incidents and asked for money as they entered Kar-Charrat Library on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2020. When the students handed over the money, the man grabbed the students by the waist and forcibly kissed them. Public Safety officers immediately responded to the scene and quickly located and arrested the man nearby on Lincoln Street. The suspect was charged with Trespassing and will be charged with Criminal Sexual Contact in the 3rd Degree, and he was placed in the Pat Garret Detention Center.

This incident reminds us that as we travel on and around the campus, whether at day or night, we must always be cautious when people are seeking our assistance. In this case, our students were trying to assist someone who took advantage of them. This is not to suggest that every attempt to assist someone will turn violent, but we must keep this possibility in mind. We must be especially vigilant if we are alone and in an area where no other people are around. 

Here are some additional safety tips:

  • Travel in groups at night
  • Have your cellphone ready for use
  • Pay attention to your surroundings while using technology (especially when wearing earbuds/headphones)
  • Report any suspicious persons
  • Carry Pepper Spray
  • At night, travel the most well-lit routes
  • Call 911 if you need the police on or off-campus
  • Take advantage of all the safety programs your school has to offer.

. As always, our Public Safety officers are available to provide escorts on campus, and the local Shuttle (is available for off-campus transportation seven nights a week from 11:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. during the fall and spring semesters.
