Recent Crimes Reported Around the Periphery of the University
Over the holiday weekend, University Security Services reported several serious, apparently unrelated, crimes affecting members of the University community. The incidents took place off campus but within close proximity to the University campuses and are now under investigation by the Rochester Police Department. University Security is actively working with Rochester police and is urging members of the community to review the University’s safety tips and to be vigilant. "Several University students and a staff member were injured in the criminal incidents this weekend. When members of our community are hurt, we all feel it. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families. We stand ready to assist any members of the University who have been touched by these crimes," said Provost Ralph Kuncl.
