Follow-up to Security Alert

Dear Members of the Campus Community,

I am writing as a follow-up to the Security Alert sent last night about the incident occurring just after 11 p.m. in the President's Woods near the library. 

The student who made the report was not injured and did not have any of her personal property taken from her. The motive for the incident is not clear at this time. The student was not able to provide any suspect information, as she never saw anyone. She said she felt a tug on her backpack, which she was wearing, and then ran to the Security Services office to report the incident. Tacoma Police and university Security staff responded immediately to the area, but were not able to locate anyone.

Please contact Security Services if you have additional information about this incident. 

Always be mindful of your personal safety. Please consider walking in pairs late at night or using the Security Services safety escort program. Security Services is open 24/7. Please contact our dispatch center by calling 253.879.3311 to request a safety escort or report suspicious activity.

Todd A. Badham ’85, P'11
Director of Security
