    Campus Crime Alert 2017-04-15

    April 15th, 2017


    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.

    University of Oregon Police are investigating a stabbing that happened in the northeast corner of a UO-owned parking lot near Kincaid Street and 13th Avenue Alley, just south of Alpha Omega House, on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at around 1:30 a.m.

    The 21-year old male victim, not affiliated with the UO, went by a private car to McKenzie-Willamette Hospital in Springfield with non-life-threatening injuries before police arrived. According to witnesses, the victim and suspect had been involved in conversation or argument in the area before the incident in the parking lot. The victim and a witness described the suspect as a black male with medium-toned skin, just taller than 6 feet, average build, apparently mid-20s in age, no obvious facial hair, dressed in all black clothing including a hoodless coat.

    No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this or similar incidents should call UOPD at 541-346-2919.


    • 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 touch you against your will, 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. Regardless of what happens during an incident, you have the right to report the crime and to receive services and accommodations.
    • 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.


    • Survivors have a right to report crimes to police and have crimes investigated and/or prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.
    • Call 541-346-SAFE at any time or visit uodos.
    • For students, personal counseling and other support services are available through the University Counseling and Testing Center, 541-346-3227 (available 24 hours); counseling.uoregon.edu/dnn.
    • For students, medical and sexual assault examination services are available at University Health Center, 541-346-2770; healthcenter.uoregon.edu.
