The figures given below are based on the number of reports made to CEP during April 1997. Incidents reported do not necessarily result in criminal charges being laid; this depends on the outcome of an investigation.
Sexual assault 0
Fire alarms 5
Theft/attempted theft 16
None of the accidents reported in April were of a serious nature, or resulted in serious personal injury.
A student passing by quickly extinguished a small fire discovered in a garbage container on the second floor of the Music Building on April 2. CEP also responded to four fire alarms in April, none of which involved fire.
Of the 16 thefts or attempted thefts reported, approximately half occurred when belongings were left unattended. The items stolen included a pen (later returned), jackets, a rugby shirt (later found), wallets, purses, knapsacks, calculators, eye glasses, books and car keys. A woman is being charged with petty theft after she was discovered in possession of a wallet and set of keys that had been reported missing from the QE II Library on April 2. In addition, the RNC is investigating a theft reported on April 5; $1,000 was stolen from a locked filing cabinet in Room MU-2003, Music Building, but there were no signs of forced entry.
