View Georgetown Voice Crime Map: September 2009 in a larger map
During the month of September, Georgetown’s Department of Public Safety reported 26 incidents, according to the September Daily Crime Log (which was just put up on the DPS website in its finalized form this week). That’s a slight increase over August’s 21 reported incidents.
Here’s how the numbers break down:
- 14 cases of the reported theft. Four of the thefts involved bicycles.
- With the return of students, there was a drastic uptick in public urination (shocking!). There were 5 reported cases of public urination this September. The most uncouth incident is from September 20th, when “a male was observed urinating in an elevator” in Darnall.
- There was one reported case of sexual abuse this month. You can read the Voice‘s coverage of the incident here.
- There were two drug violations reported, both of which involved marijuana.
- There was one incident involving destruction of property in which “unknown suspects, using spray paint, stenciled an SS symbol over a cross.” You can read Vox‘s coverage of the incident here.
The ‘most bizarre crime of the month’ award goes to this incident that occurred at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, September 2nd in LXR:
An unknown suspect stole a suit of armor statue from the victim’s balcony. Case cleared: the victim got his statue back and he didn’t want to press charges.
