Timely Warning: Nov. 4, 2014
As reported today (Tuesday, Nov. 4) to Bloomsburg University Police: On Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 9 p.m., a female was forced to the ground and touched inappropriately by two males in costume. The incident occurred on the Blue Lot on Upper Campus.
Always be vigilant of your surroundings and do not walk alone. If you feel threatened or uncomfortable about a situation do not hesitate to notify police. The university recommends students walk in groups and keep a cell phone readily accessible.
Also, consider carrying a whistle. While there are limitations to the effectiveness of a whistle against all threats, it could work well in a difficult situation as students would first blow into the whistle to attract help and then use a cell phone to call for help. For your safety, there are emergency call boxes available throughout campus. If you are in town and need help call 911.
This timely warning is issued in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Crime Statistics Act of 1990.
