A female Notre Dame graduate student was approached by a lone male suspect as she entered her car in the C1 (stadium) parking lot between approximately 6:30 and 6:45 p.m. Monday, according to an email sent Tuesday from the Office of Campus Safety.
The email stated that the woman locked her car upon entering it, and the male attempted to enter the vehicle. The woman was able to drive safely away without further incident.
“Our concern has been heightened as [Notre Dame Security Police] learned this afternoon from our partner law enforcement agencies that similar incidents … have occurred over the course of the past several weeks in the South Bend area under similar circumstances, including time of day,” the email stated.
Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) regularly patrols all areas of campus. In the email, the Office of Campus Safety said any suspicious activity should be reported immediately to NDSP.
