Director of Campus Safety Bob Hooper sent an email via student-info to campus this afternoon, alerting students to an incident that occurred yesterday where money was taken from a student in their residence. More after the break:
The email read:
Campus Safety has been alerted to an incident that took place in a residence hall late yesterday at around 6 pm. A resident — who was asleep in his room at the time — reported being awakened by two unknown people who immediately left the room upon being confronted. After taking stock of personal belongings, the resident reported that money was taken from the room during the incident.
Campus Safety encourages all residents to lock their rooms when away from them, even temporarily (while showering, for example), or while asleep. In addition, please do not undermine safety mechanisms by letting individuals unknown to you “tailgate” into residential buildings.
Finally, if you have any information concerning the above incident or if you notice any suspicious activity, please report these to Campus Safety immediately.
Thanks for your cooperation.
Remember, everyone, that while it’s finals, safety is a priority and you should always remember to lock your door. If you have any information about the break-in, the number for Campus Safety emergency number is (740) 427-5555, while you can call (740) 427-5000 for non-emergencies.
