Trespasser enters residence

Observer Staff Report | Monday, September 12, 2011

A female student told police a college-aged male allegedly awakened her in her room at approximately 6:30 a.m. Sunday morning, according to Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP).

The student said the male entered her room, woke her and spoke to her. She said she told him to leave the room.

The man left the room without incident, police said. The student reported it to police at about 3 p.m. Sunday.

NDSP alerted students of the incident via email Sunday evening.

“NDSP recommends that residence room doors and windows should be locked when you sleep or when you are away,” the email stated. “Do not let people not known to you into residence halls.”

The email alert also advised students to contact NDSP if they witness suspicious activity or behavior.
