Campus Crime Watch: September 2010
As expected, the first full month of the academic year saw an uptick in crime from the summer lull, bringing the total number of crimes reported to the Department of Public Safety up to 43 for the month. A number of off-campus crimes occurred in September as well, including a burglary, a number of iPhone robberies, and a robbery of an armored car.
Here’s a rundown of some of the crimes that were reported to DPS:
- A suspect was found to be in possession of a dangerous weapon when it was determined that he had three machetes. (Sounds like he came prepared for any potential burglaries on campus.)
- Two assaults on a police officer occurred in September, one of which happened during the protest of Álvaro Uribe’s guest lecture.
- Nine drug violations were discovered by DPS, of which nearly half took place over the second weekend of September.
- A total of 13 thefts were reported to DPS, including a bike stolen from inside the Mortara Center, as well as an unattended computer and wallet taken in Lauinger Library.
- Two lewd incidents were reported, including one about a male fondling himself in front of a student.
