William & Mary

Suspicious person

Vice President for Administration Anna B. Martin sent the following message to the campus community on Sept. 13, 2010. -Ed.

Dear William & Mary community,
There have been two recent reports of a male suspect confronting female students with lewd behavior or gestures. Both incidents occurred on campus.  The most recent incident occurred  on the DuPont Bridge.  The prior incident occurred  on Landrum drive.  Neither student was hurt in the incidents.
My purpose in writing is two-fold.  First, it is to caution you that there may be someone in the Williamsburg area who is approaching young women and acting in an inappropriate manner.  Second, please be aware of your surroundings and avoid walking alone whenever you can, especially at night. If you are on campus, remember you may call the ESCORT service at 1-3293.
Additionally, if you see a person meeting the following description, or experience anything suspicious call the William and Mary Police at 757-221-4596 immediately: Black male, in his 40’s, possibly with a goatee, driving a tan sedan.  If possible attempt to get a license plate number.
Thank you.
Anna B. Martin
Vice President for Administration
The College of William and Mary
