Three of the accidents reported in January involved collisions between vehicles, and subsequently, minor and moderate damage. Also, one a woman slipped and fell in parking area 9E and hurt her back and head. A second woman slipped and fell in parking area 15, and cut her knee and broke her arm.
Of the seven fire alarms to which CEP responded in January, only one involved smoke. On Jan. 4 the Engineering Building had to be evacuated when an electrical appliance left unattended burned a countertop and filled the building with heavy smoke. Fortunately no one was hurt.
On Jan. 16, a female student asking directions in the Science Building received unwanted attention -- and later, unwelcome telephone calls -- from an unknown male. On Jan. 17, a female employee was harassed and followed from the tunnels near the Science Building to the Music Building by an unknown male.
The items reported stolen in January included several winter coats, a VCR, a four-inch by three-inch black sculpture of a humpback whale, and a black AM/FM cassette player.
