College security issues campus-wide safety alert

Liz Harter | Tuesday, April 8, 2008

Saint Mary’s security issued a safety alert about a suspicious person on the College’s campus through e-mails and flyers Monday.

The alert described a “white male of medium build with a bald head” who was spotted on the roof of Regina Hall by a student around 11:43 p.m. Saturday night.

A Saint Mary’s security officer responded to a call made by the student and saw a male fitting this description on the lower roof of the building.

The initial responding officer called for backup and proceeded to investigate the lower roof of the residence hall.

However, according to the security alert, the suspect had managed to make his way off the roof and escape by the time this search was completed.

According to the alert, “there should not be anybody working on the roof of buildings during nighttime hours unless Security has been made aware of it.”

It asks that students familiarize themselves with the description of the suspect and immediately report persons matching this description to security, as they should be considered suspicious.

The Observer was unable to contact Saint Mary’s security Monday.
