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, October 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.
