DPS responds to attempted abduction with more patrols
The Department of Public Safety has increased East Campus patrols after a student was almost abducted early on Sunday morning.
“We are stepping up patrols of the East campus area in search of the suspects,” Joseph Smith, associate director of DPS, wrote in an email. “I think this case demonstrates how important it is to walk in groups or pair whenever possible and to report suspicious activity to the police.”
DPS has also contacted local colleges to determine if any similar incidents have occurred on other campuses.
“To my knowledge, nothing of this sort has occurred in recent years within the campus vicinity,” Smith wrote.
DPS and the Metropolitan Police Department are conducting an ongoing investigation into the crime.
