“Public Safety would like to inform the community that on Friday 12/5/08 at approximately 1:00am a student was approached outside their residence on Pearl St by an individual who began asking the student questions about where they lived and what was in his pockets. The individual then attempted to strike the student and a scuffle ensued. The subject got to his feet and pointed a handgun at the student and demanded they empty their pockets. A vehicle then approached the area and the subject fled. The student went to a friend’s house and later called Middletown Police. The student did not receive any injuries.”
I received the email this morning. Is this stuff normal at Weleyan? Being a freshmen, I can’t compare the number of Public Safety notifications received this year with the number last year. If my parents saw this, they might freak out and goodness, they don’t need another freak out.
