Incident Information

Attempted Theft, Parking Lot B/Arnold Campus

AACC Public Safety & Police were notified by a student of the college that on Thursday evening, Nov. 8, 2019, at approximately 10:30 p.m., a student walking to her car noticed a subject standing next to her driver’s side door as she approached her vehicle. The unknown subject requested a ride and appeared to the student to be intoxicated. The student moved around to the passenger side and unlocked her car to place her personal items in the car, at which time the unknown subject entered her vehicle and sat in the driver’s seat and continued to ask for a ride. The student remained outside of the vehicle and demanded the subject exit her vehicle. At one point the subject attempted to take her personal items from the front passenger seat but exited the car without the items. The student was able to safely enter the driver’s side of the vehicle, lock herself in the vehicle and exit the parking lot. The student reported the incident once she arrived home; however, a student witness reported the incident using a campus blue emergency phone while the incident was in progress. The unknown subject left campus; however, was arrested a short time later by county police for tampering with an auto outside of a residence off campus. The incident that occurred on campus is still under investigation with additional criminal charges pending.

Incident Information

The college’s Department of Public Safety and Police are investigating two incidents within the past few days of a suspicious subject in a vehicle approaching students.

On Wednesday, Oct. 04, 2017, at approximately 10:30 a.m., a male student was walking across “E” lot (near Florestano) toward his vehicle, when an older white male approached him in a vehicle and began asking questions about the student’s activities for the morning. The subject was described as an older white male with thinning dark hair parted on one side, possibly wearing glasses, possibly operating a white in color older model Toyota Camry. The vehicle was last seen traveling toward the main campus on West College Drive. The student thought the incident suspicious and reported it to Public Safety & Police. 

On Thursday, October 05, 2017, at approximately 11:00 a.m., a female student reported walking on the sidewalk in front of the Cade building, when an older white male in a vehicle stopped and asked her if she needed an Uber. The student, who was wearing ear buds and didn’t initially hear the subject, replied no and continued walking.  This subject was also described as an older white, skinny face, with some hair growth described as “scruffy”, a baseball cap, possibly operating a gold color older model Buick. This student also thought this incident suspicious and reported it to Public Safety & Police. 

Campus Public Safety & Police have shared this information with the Anne Arundel County Police and have not learned of any recent similar suspicious activities in the area. Although no criminal action has occurred, faculty and staff are requested to immediately report any similar suspicious activities.
