Synopsis: 

Two separate incidents occurred on Wednesday, March 16, 2022. This morning around midnight, Campus Safety responded to University Boulevard and Asbury Avenue on a peeping/voyeurism incident. Students living in this area reported that shortly before midnight on March 15, they discovered a man crouching just outside of their window with a phone or camera. One of the residents ran outside and saw the man, who appeared to be alone, get into a black Ford Explorer and drive off. The suspect was described as a slim, white male with a goatee in his late 20s to mid-30s. He was reported to be wearing a black or dark colored hooded sweatshirt or jacket. A report was filed with the Denver Police Department.

A later incident was reported to Campus Safety around 6am in a different off-campus residence. A person broke into a student’s residence at Evans Avenue and Clayton Street. The student was able to avoid the intruder by locking themselves inside of their bathroom. Police responded to this location as well. No suspect description was received for this incident.

This information is being shared with the community per federal law.

Safety & Security Tips

These safety and security tips are strategies for reducing risk and victimization is never the fault of the victim/survivor. Be aware of your surroundings. If you see anyone suspicious, avoid them by entering a public place such as a business.

  1. Do not use your phone or any other electronics when walking. These devices distract you and make you an easy target for criminals.
  2. Avoid displaying large amounts of cash, or wearing/displaying valuable jewelry or electronics. These items are enticing to criminals who assume that you have more valuables in your possession.
  3. Try to walk in well-lit areas as much as possible.
  4. Walk on the sidewalk whenever possible. Walk close to the curb, avoiding doorways, bushes and other potential hiding places.
