El Camino College student assaulted

Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a 20-year-old female student at knifepoint after an evening class at El Camino College this week, officials said today.
After a dance class in the women’s gymnasium Tuesday, the woman walked around a corner to a soda machine on her way to meet her mother in a nearby parking lot, El Camino College Police Chief Steve Port said today. A man approached her at knifepoint near the vending machine, took her behind the women’s gym to an alcove near the locker room, where he sexually assaulted her for 15 to 20 minutes, Port said.
After the assault, the victim called 911 from her cellphone, Port said, and a campus police cadet walking nearby heard her sobbing and went to help her. The victim’s mother, curious about the arrival of emergency vehicles and equipment, left her car and walked over to the area, finding her daughter being attended to by paramedics, Port said.
The woman was taken to a hospital, where she stayed overnight, and evidence was gathered and sent to the county crime lab, Port said. As of Wednesday, she was home with her family, officials said.
Port said the area was “fairly well populated” in the evening. He said police hoped the public would provide tips and that a student might have seen something.
“When he grabs her, he’s holding the knife, he has a ski mask on, a hood over the ski mask, all in black dark clothes, a non-police person is still going to see this person and know it’s not Halloween,” Port said

An Augsburg freshman says four women called her racist and punched her on election night after seeing her McCain-Palin button.

An Augsburg freshman says four women called her racist and punched her on election night after seeing her McCain-Palin button. By PAUL WALSH, Star Tribune Last update: November 11, 2008 - 11:05 PM An Augsburg College student and Sarah Palin supporter from Alaska was beaten on election night while walking to her dorm and was called a racist by a group of four young women because she had on a McCain/Palin presidential campaign button, authorities and the victim said. Annie Grossmann, a freshman on the Minneapolis college's hockey team, suffered blurred vision and is thought to have had a concussion from a punch in the eye, but declined medical attention, she said. Through her mother, Grossmann, 18, of Delta Junction, reported the assault to campus security the next morning, and Minneapolis police were notified that afternoon. No arrests have been made. Grossmann said she was in a dorm lobby with a handful of fellow Republicans watching election returns with "a bunch of Democrats around next to me, cheering [Barack] Obama on and rubbing it in our faces." Once it was obvious that Obama was going to win, Grossmann said, she left the building alone shortly after 9:30 p.m. and headed to her room. Under a skyway connecting the two buildings, four women "bigger than I am" came up to her, she said. "One approached me and got in my face and called me racist because I had the pin on. That really ticked me off, but I kind of left it alone because she was so much bigger than I am," said Grossmann. She is 5 feet 2 and weighs 120 pounds, and played boys high school hockey in Alaska. "The girls in the background were just a little bigger than me. They were mocking me from the sidelines. "I didn't say anything. ... This one [bigger] girl grabbed me by the shoulders and was holding me. After about five minutes, I just wanted to get out of there." Grossmann, who is white, said she told the women, who were black, "You guys don't even know me. There's no reason to think I'm racist." At that point, she said, she pushed the bigger one in the group, and "she punched me, and the back of my head hit a brick wall." "'Are you serious?''' she recalled saying to the women. After cursing at Grossmann, the women left, and "I held my eye and went to my room."

College student attacked, robbed

Incident occured on Jamestown Road after a dorm party
A female College student was assaulted and robbed on Jamestown Road while walking home from a party in Jamestown South at 2:13 a.m. Oct. 27.
The suspect approached the student on the right side of the street and first asked where the party was taking place.
He then proceeded to steal the student’s purse, injuring her face and arm in the process. The student’s injuries were not serious.
The suspect, a black male, is thought to be about 5’9” and in his early 20s.
At the time of the incident, the victim reported the suspect as wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a knit hat with a brim. Since the assault and robbery occurred beyond College property, the Williamsburg Police Department has been handling the investigation.
According to a Williamsburg police representative, 12 assaults and robberies occur each year on average.
Of those incidents, the number of robberies that actually involve College students are few.
“All suspects meet three criteria: the ability, the desire and the opportunity,” the representative said. “We cannot change the ability or the desire, but as citizens we can avoid giving them the [opportunity] to commit the crime.”
To prevent robberies, the Williamsburg Police Department suggests being smart in one’s decisions and always traveling in groups.
“Avoid being by yourself out late at night,” the representative said. “If you see something suspicious, don’t be afraid to call the police department

College student assaulted in Muncie

Muncie - A Muncie college student is recovering from serious injuries to both arms after she says five young women beat her up. Her attackers aren't being modest, either. They're bragging about the attack online.
Just out of the hospital, the victim, Christina, described her emotional and physical state after the attack.
"As soon as the adrenalin wore off, I just thought I was going to die," she said.
Her father, Rick, doesn't understand the bravado of his daughter's attackers.
"You don't go around injuring and beating people up and go, 'This is something to brag about'."
The family doesn't want their last name used. They still feel threatened by the women Christina says attacked her, allegedly over a boy her friend was dating. She calls the act "completely animalistic."
"It's ridiculous," she said. "You question their sanity."
The assault happened early Sunday morning. Christina was leaving a party at a house in Muncie when she says four young women surrounded her before the primary attacker came onto the porch.
"She went for my throat," Christina says. "She's a lot smaller than me, and I just pushed her down. I don't even know who came at me when. I got punched down on my face."
She says they kicked her repeatedly.
"Every time I tried to pick myself up, my arms were kicked out from underneath me," she said.
The kicks broke the bone around her elbow and injured her other arm.

Black College Student Attacked, Almost Drowned

Black College Student Attacked, Almost Drowned
Via Pam, this story is nothing short of infuriating:
''Get off the boat, N-----,'' the teens said to Barrett, according to police reports.
Words were exchanged, but the FIU students got off the boat, said Christopher Eden, who had attended the party with Barrett and friend Daniel Cabevas.
The three friends, all 18, decided to wait on the island for the boat's next trip.
But when they arrived back at the marina, the teens, now armed with baseball bats, were waiting for them.
The three college students were overwhelmed by their attackers.
Barrett was knocked into the Intracoastal, and several teens tried holding his head under water, according to police reports.
Yeah, that's what attempted murder looks like.
''Upon my arrival, I observed approximately 10-15 subjects trying to leave the area in a hurry,'' Goldberg wrote in his report. ``There were three victims who were hit with bats and one victim was almost drowned . . . while also being beaten.''
Miami-Dade, Surfside, Sunny Isles Beach and Bay Harbor Islands officers also went to the scene.
A bloody baseball bat was taken as evidence. The arrests were made by detectives from Miami-Dade's Intracoastal station.
Charged with a hate crime, battery and attempted felony murder: Miguel Aranda, 18, and Gilberto Maakaroun, 17, a North Miami Beach High student.
Charged with a hate crime and battery: Nicholas Checa, 15, and Marino Biondini, 17.
A fifth person, Jose Osorio, 21, was charged with aggravated battery and attempted felony murder, but not a hate crime.

Pennsylvania College Student is Beaten to Death Near Campus,2933,296135,00.html

KUTZTOWN, Pa. — A Kutztown University student was beaten to death on a downtown sidewalk early Friday by three men who evidently chose their victim at random, police said.
The suspects, all from Allentown, were charged with assaulting Kyle Quinn, 19, who was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour after the attack. The district attorney said he anticipated filing homicide charges pending the results of an autopsy scheduled for Saturday.
Kutztown's president, F. Javier Cevallos, called the beating a "senseless isolated random act of violence" and urged students to be vigilant.
A police officer in the small college town happened upon the scene shortly before 2:30 a.m., saw Quinn on the ground and arrested the men, who are not students, Berks County District Attorney Mark Baldwin said.
"He had been beaten and was lying in a pool of blood on the sidewalk," Baldwin said.

Spike in crime hits campus

Yale Summer Students worried by five recent robberies

A recent spate of crimes targeting Yale students has prompted YPD officials to release e-mails warning students of what they said is an "ongoing threat."
The same day that undergraduate dorms closed, a graduate student was the victim of an attempted armed robbery near the intersection of Mansfield and Sachem Streets. Four other robberies were committed recently - one on Cedar Street and two in the Dwight-Kensington neighborhood on May 31, as well as one on the walkway between Morse and Stiles Colleges on June 3. At least three of those incidents were armed robberies.
While the YPD generally does not inform students of every incident that occurs around campus through e-mail, YPD Sergeant Steven Woznyk said in this case students should be informed of the incidents as the latest rash of crime seems to indicate the possibility of a continued threat.
Woznyk said the rise in crimes affecting Yale students has kept pace with a general increase in violent crime across New Haven. During the weekend of June 2-3, six shootings and one homicide occurred in the city, he said, suggesting that Yale students are not being singled out for robberies.
Most crime in summer of 2006 was perpetrated by youths on bikes armed with pellet guns and knives, but Woznyk said "boys on bikes" have had nothing to do with the recent Yale robberies. One graduate student was mugged in late June of last year and two more students were targeted in late August.
And while YPD Chief James Perrotti's e-mails attributed increased student vulnerability to warmer weather and longer periods of daylight, Woznyk said he could not offer an explanation as to why crimes rates have increased this summer.
