    Campus Crime Alert 2016-02-26

    February 26th, 2016
    UO-Header-p62azs.jpg

    What is this notice? Campus Crime Alerts are released by the University of Oregon Police Department when certain crimes are reported on or near campus property, and in compliance with federal law. These timely warnings provide information about campus safety situations, and allow campus community members to take precautions for personal safety. All crimes should be reported as soon as possible to local law enforcement.

    A male University of Oregon student reported to police that a man tried to rob him near the southwest exterior of Bean Hall on the UO campus, just before midnight on February 25, 2016.

    UO police immediately searched the area, but did not locate the suspect, described as a white male, between 21 and 26 years old, “clean-cut” appearance, wearing a black and/or blue hooded sweatshirt with white draw cords and the hood pulled up, light-colored long shorts or short jeans, white socks puled up, and black shoes. The suspect reportedly did not show a weapon or make a specific threat, but demanded valuables. The male student fled, and the suspect was last seen on foot heading east. A person matching the suspect description was reported near 17th Avenue and Fairmount Boulevard. Eugene Police with a K-9 unit assisted with the search.

    A UOAlert! text message was sent to campus about the incident.

    This incident is unresolved and an investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this or similar incidents should call UOPD at 541-346-2919. Updates regarding this incident, when and if available, will be posted on the UOPD website at police.uoregon.edu.

    SAFETY TIPS FROM UOPD

    No action or inaction by a crime survivor makes that person responsible for his or her victimization. Perpetrators are responsible for crimes and their effects. The following suggestions may help reduce the possibility of experiencing such a crime, or may improve opportunities to receive prompt assistance.

    It is a crime to intentionally touch someone against his or her will, regardless of the situation.

    Bystanders should try to be aware of their surroundings, and if there are signs of a person in distress, bystanders should make themselves known and offer assistance if it is safe to do so, and/or seek immediate help from police or security personnel.

    Every person and situation is different; survivors must decide for themselves what actions or responses are safest in any situation. If someone attempts to grab you, you have the right to yell “NO” loudly, or do whatever is necessary to get the person to let go, and flee to a safe place and seek help. When safe, try to remember as much as possible about the person’s appearance and behavior.

    Assaults by strangers are far less common than assaults by people known to survivors. Self-defense classes can prepare people to deter or escape an assault, and have benefits for improved awareness and confidence. Credit courses are available from the Physical Education department (http://uocatalog.uoregon.edu/pe_rec/#courseinventory) and from UOPD and SAPP (http://police.uoregon.edu/content/self-defense).

    Students may use UO Safe Ride (541-346-RIDE ext. 2), call a taxicab, or contact UOPD for an on-campus escort (541-346-2919).

    For emergencies or if you see a crime being committed, call 9-1-1. To report suspicious, illegal or unusual activity on campus, call UOPD at 541-346-2919.
