June 26, 2012 Alert

Due to recent incidents near Frontier and Pioneer Halls, we are asking that all members of the campus community take the necessary security precautions when walking around the perimeter of the Carroll University campus, especially at night.

At approximately 9:00pm, on Tuesday June 26th, a female student walking near Frontier Hall reported being grabbed by a male subject who was riding a bicycle. She stated that the male (see description below) was asking her questions and then grabbed her and pulled her close to him. The same subject had also grabbed her on the evening of June 18th at approximately 8:00pm but she had not reported that incident. The student in both incidents was able to get away from the subject. Waukesha Police responded and are investigating the incidents. The description of the subject is as follows:

  • Hispanic Male
  • 5'4"-5'6" tall
  • 180-200 lbs.
  • Late 20's to early 30's
  • Visible tattoo on right forearm
  • Short dark hair
  • Heavy accent
  • Dressed in green pants and a green t-shirt (last evening)

This morning at approximately 12:37am, a student walking in a small group was physically assaulted by two Hispanic males at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Carroll Streets. The student was slightly injured and the two subjects ran from the area. The males were described as:

  • Male Hispanic
  • Approximately 5'3" tall
  • Approximately 18 years of age
  • Both had buzz cut haircuts
  • Both were wearing shorts and one was wearing a t-shirt

Be assured that the City of Waukesha Police and Carroll University Public Safety have increased patrols in this area. Please be aware of your surroundings, walk with at least one other person, or preferably in a group.

If you see something that is suspicious, contact the police immediately by calling 9-1-1 or Public Safety at 262-524-7300. Public Safety provides free, on demand shuttle service within the immediate area by calling 262-524-7300. Public Safety can also be contacted by using one of the blue light phones on campus as well as the house phones in the academic buildings and the residence halls.

Thank you for your help as we strive to provide a safe campus community for all of our students, employees and visitors.
