Suspicious driver on campus

Roxanne Roxanne, Editor-in-Chief

Police reported in an email to faculty and staff this morning two separate incidents of a suspicious person approaching students on campus.

The incident report sent via email said one event happened Wednesday at about 10:30 a.m. and one on Thursday at about 11 a.m. In both cases, a white “older” man drove up to a student and started asking the student questions.

On Wednesday, the driver asked a male student questions about his plans for the morning. On Thursday, the driver asked a female student if she needed an Uber.

Police said they aren’t sure whether both cases involved the same suspect or two different people because¬†witnesses reported different vehicles: a white “older model” Toyota Camry on Wednesday and a gold “older model” Buick, according to the incident report.

“It could be nothing,” Police Chief Sean Kapfhammer said, “[but] it is kind of weird.”

“I’m glad that it’s something that’s being put out there, especially since we have a lot of high school students here,” second-year student Demi Mondragon said. “A lot of people trust strangers.”

Students, faculty or staff should contact campus police at 410-777-1818, dial 911 or use one of the blue emergency poles located around campus if they see anything suspicious or feel they are in danger.
