Crime Alert: Students Report Entry at Off-Campus Apartment

Published 01.25.2006


Two female Pennsylvania College of Technology students reported this morning that someone entered their off-campus apartment on West Third Street. The incident was reported at 4:30 a.m. after they had awakened to find a black male inside their apartment. He apparently entered through an unlocked door. A search of the area was conducted by Penn College Police and the Williamsport Bureau of Police; no one was found. The students were not injured, and nothing was reported taken.

All students, faculty and staff should be alert for suspicious persons and potentially dangerous situations on and off campus. Be security-conscious, and keep doors locked at all times. At night, walk on well-lighted sidewalks and walkways. Park as close as possible to any buildings you intend to enter. If possible, walk with another person. Call Penn College Police for an escort to any on-campus destination, if needed.
