(April 24, 1997, Gazette)
This monthly report is compiled from information made available by the Campus Enforcement and Patrol (CEP) unit. CEP is located in the Services Building on Memorial's St. John's campus, telephone 737-8561. At Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, the security office is Room AS-280, Arts and Science Building, telephone 637-6310. At the Marine Institute, Ridge Road, telephone 778-0456 to reach the security office.
None of the seven fire alarms to which CEP responded in February involved fire.
All four disturbances occurred in either the Breezeway or the food court in the Student Centre.
In two of the more serious incidents, people under the influence of alcohol damaged glass doors in the Student Centre. One man has since paid for the damage he caused, and CEP is seeking compensation for damages to property in the second case.
A female student requested, and was granted, a CEP escort on several occasions (beginning Feb. 26) after a male she knew had exhibited threatening behavior towards her. The incidents have since stopped.
The second physical assault occurred late in the evening of March 21. A female student said she was walking past the Student Centre when a male wearing a black baseball cap grabbed her by the arm and tried to tug her down a walkway near the Queen Elizabeth II Library. She got away and ran. CEP and the RNC are working together to investigate.
Of the eight fire alarms CEP responded to in March, only one involved fire. A small fire started in a microwave oven in the Engineering Cafeteria on March 17, but it was quickly extinguished.
Only one of the disturbances reported was serious. On March 7 a patron of the Breezeway Bar threw a beer bottle and hit three people; their injuries were not serious. No charges are being laid since there is no evidence as to who threw the bottle.
Twelve youths were asked to leave campus after they were found skateboarding in the parking garage of the Earth Sciences Building.
