SECURITY NOTICE #######
The following situation did not take place on campus, or in the immediate neighborhood. It occurred about 10 blocks south and 6 blocks west of Rockhurst. It involved a Rockhurst Student who wants to relate what happened to her so that others can understand potential crime risks. In doing so it will help them make adjustments to how they do things; hopefully preventing them from becoming a victim of crime. It also points out that victimization can occur anywhere.
On Saturday, 10-20-12 between 1:15 AM and 1:30 AM a Rockhurst Student was walking by herself to her residence from a restaurant in the Brookside area.
As she walked along 63rd Street a vehicle crossed over into the opposite driving lanes and stopped next to the student. At first she thought that maybe the occupants were in need of directions. There were two occupants in the vehicle, both got out. One stayed by the car and the other person approached the victim, pushed her down and told her to get on the ground “bitch.” As she fell to the ground the suspect who pushed her, bent down and pulled her skirt up and attempted to tear her tights off. During the course of the struggle the victim told the suspect (s) that she had a gun in her purse. This evidently scared the individual, making him stop doing what he was doing, get up and he and the other suspect got in their car and left the area eastbound. The victim got up and walked to her residence and ultimately contacted the KCPD. An officer responded, and took a report. The victim received some bruises and her clothing was damaged.
The victim said that both suspects had on ski masks and she could not positively identify either one of them. The car they were in is described as a late model, dark colored, 4dr-no other information available. The victim kept her head and the statement she made about the gun worked. Of course there is no assurance that such a statement will always have a positive effect on a criminal. As this student learned, after you are confronted by a criminal, surviving becomes the primary objective for the victim.
This student has promised to always practice a more effective form of security called, crime prevention. Crime prevention is: ” the anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to either reduce or remove the risk.” In this example the risk could have been greatly reduced or even completely removed by asking someone for a ride home or even traveling with 2 or 3 others. What we all have to do is consider the risk we are taking, and then apply techniques to reduce or remove the risk. The security department has information on many crime prevention techniques. If you are interested please contact me at ext. ####.
This student is to be commended for using her head and staying as collected and calm as possible during a dangerous encounter.
Credit to this smart, young woman who has not only inspired but also proven to TKC that women are armed with lies in even the most tense circumstances.
