Subject: Public Safety Advisory

In its continuing efforts to keep the campus safe, Public Safety is seeking assistance from the campus community to identify and catch the person in the composite sketch below. If you see someone matching the description, do not confront him, but immediately alert Public Safety at 909-748-8888 or use one of the many Emergency Blue Light phones situated around campus that automatically connects you with Public Safety.

Suspicious Person Seen on Campus
Since the beginning of the school year there have been three reported incidents of an unknown person who looks into residence hall windows on campus.

The person of interest is described as a Caucasian or Hispanic Male, 18-22 years old, 5’-8” to 5’-10” in height, medium build, shoulder length shaggy brown hair. During the late night or early morning hours he looks into residence hall rooms where the window shades or blinds are up and the lights are on.

Public Safety has increased its patrol presence in and around the residence halls both in vehicles and on foot. The composite sketch has been posted in all the residence halls. Public Safety is working with Redlands Police in trying to identify and apprehend this person.

As a reminder, students and staff are urged to take precautions and to heighten their safety awareness, especially at night.

  • Lock your room doors
  • Pull down window shades and blinds at night in residence hall rooms, even if your window is open
  • Make sure the doors leading into the residence halls are locked and secured
  • Let your roommate or friend know where and when you are going and coming back
  • Carry your emergency whistle (which can be obtained free from Student Life)
  • Avoid walking alone and be aware of your surroundings
  • Use lighted pathways or sidewalks
  • Use the free On-Campus Shuttle service to get around campus
  • Immediately report any suspicious persons or activities to Public Safety

Our highest priority remains the safety of our campus community members. If you have any questions or information, contact Public Safety at 909-748-8888 or ext. 8888 from on campus phones.
