On Friday, May 22, 2015 at about noon, a female student was followed to the second-floor hallway of Residential Building 61. As she was walking from the stairwell entrance to the vending machines, an unknown suspect ran up behind her and wrapped one of his arms around her waist area. The suspect then pulled the victim toward himself and slapped her on the buttocks multiple times. As she struggled with the suspect, he released her and fled the area on foot toward Parking Lot Q.
The suspect was described only as a skinny male, possibly white, Asian or Hispanic. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with a red design and dark-colored jeans.
“Any time someone touches another person in an inappropriate manner, it is a serious matter,” says Acting Police Chief Bruce Wilson. “University Police are conducting a thorough investigation into this incident.”

The federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires colleges and universities, both public and private, participating in federal student aid programs to disclose campus safety information, and imposes certain basic requirements for handling incidents of sexual violence and emergency situations. Disclosures about crime statistics and summaries of security policies are made once a year in an Annual Security Report (ASR), and information about specific crimes and emergencies is made publicly available on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
