Intimidation – Hate Crime

Case # 15-015

January 16, 2015

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), Rollins College issues timelynotices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus. The College may distribute timely notices using a variety of means, including emails, text  messages, flyers, and website announcements posted on the Campus Safety website (http://www.rollins.edu/safety/clery_act_compliance/timely_notices.html .)

The Rollins College Campus Safety Department has received information about two intimidation related incidents that occurred in early December and again on January 13, 2015. In the December incident, two students reported that they were walking on Park Avenue, when a beige/ gold colored Lexus SUV approached them and began making comments that were demeaning and questioning their sexuality. At the time, neither student was able to obtain a license plate number or any other identifiable information. On January 13, one of the students was approached by the same vehicle while on campus and the occupants of the vehicle splashed water on the student. The student attempted to confront the occupants, but they again splashed water in an attempt to intimidate and harass. At this point, the student was certain that it was the same vehicle and occupants as in December for a variety of reasons. The student was able to write down the license plate number – W36 1VN, and determine that it was a Lexus GX SUV.

If you find yourself in a similar situation on or near campus as the victim or as a responsible bystander, below are some tips:

-          Do not engage with the aggressors but notify bystanders around you of what is happening

-          Try to memorize any identifying physical information (model/make/color of the vehicle, license plate number, # of passengers, physical attributes of the aggressors, direction the vehicle is heading)

-          Enter a safe, local establishment and call 911

-          Always remember that you can call Campus Safety for an escort if you are feeling unsafe on campus

Sexual Assault - Forcible Rape
Case # 15 - 005
January 8, 2015

 

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), Rollins College issues timely notices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus. The College may distribute timely notices using a variety of means, including emails, text messages, flyers, and website announcements posted on the Campus Safety website (http://www.rollins.edu/safety/clery_act_compliance/timely_notices.html .


The Rollins College Campus Safety Department, in cooperation with several other Departments at Rollins College, was made aware today of a sexual assault - forcible rape that took place on campus during the morning on Wednesday December 3, 2014 involving two undergraduate students. The incident took place inside of a residential hall on-campus and an investigation is ongoing. Rollins College is providing resources and advocacy to assist the individual involved in this incident, and will continue to take actions to maintain the safety and security of the campus community.


Approximately 66% of rapes are committed by someone known to the victim. To prevent similar crimes from happening, we recommend that everyone familiarize themselves with what constitutes sexual assault and, as a community, be vigilant in stopping it:


- Always seek consent. Stop your sexual advances if the other person indicates no interest, and especially if they say "no." Engaging in any type of sexual activity without the explicit consent of your partner is sexual assault. If either party is under the influence of alcohol, consent cannot be given.
- The absence of a "no" is not a "yes."
- Avoid engaging in, supporting or encouraging sexual harassment.
- Do NOT use threats or coercion to engage in sexual activity.
- Call for help if you witness a violent crime.
- Do not take advantage of someone who is passed out, incoherent or otherwise incapacitated, and prevent others from doing so.


Unfortunately, although the majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by friends, acquaintances, or partners of the victims, the majority of sexual assault prevention tips are modeled after perpetrators that are unknown to the victim. Recognizing this, and recognizing that, ultimately, it is not the responsibility of the victim to prevent their own assault, we nonetheless offer the following advice to promote general risk awareness:


- Be aware of your surroundings. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you find a way to get out of a bad situation.
- If you are consuming alcohol, ensure you have at least one friend that will help you get home safely if your decision-making ability becomes impaired.
- Make sure your cell phone is with you and charged.
- If possible, try to avoid being isolated with someone you don't trust or someone you don't know.
- Trust your instincts. If a situation or location feels unsafe or uncomfortable, it probably isn't the best place to be.
- If you feel your safety is at risk, or need assistance or an escort on campus; please contact Campus Safety at 407/646-2999.
- Stay with groups of friends you know and trust.


If you have any additional information that might assist Rollins College Campus Safety in their investigation, please contact us at 407/646-2999 (X2999) or campussafety@rollins.edu .


If you have been a victim of sexual assault, we encourage you to report it. If you would like to get the help of a confidential victim advocate for your own assault or someone you know, please contact:

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT

Case # 14-357

November 18, 2014

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), Rollins College issues timely notices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus. The College may distribute timely notices using a variety of means, including emails, text messages, flyers, and website announcements posted on the Campus Safety website (http://www.rollins.edu/safety/clery_act_compliance/timely_notices.html) 

The Rollins College Campus Safety Department was made aware of an aggravated assault/battery that took place at approximately 2am on Sunday, November 16, 2014. According to witness statements, two male students got into an altercation on Holt and French avenue. One individual struck the other with his elbow causing facial damage. After collecting preliminary information, it was deemed necessary to summarily suspend the student to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the College community. A summary suspension means that a student will be denied access to residence halls and/or to the campus (including classes) and/or all other College activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible unless written permission is obtained from the Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students or designee. It is difficult to provide suggestions on how to take preventative steps to reduce the risk of similar situations when the reported perpetrator is known to you.

We recognize that alcohol probably played a key role in how this situation unfolded, according to witness statements and other reports. Understand that alcohol can lead to hyper-aggressive behavior and a lowering of inhibitions that may lead to negative or destructive behavior. Campus Safety and a number of departments within Student Affairs are continuing to work with the residents, students and their respective families as they proceed through this process. Please respect their privacy as they work through this difficult time period. If you have any additional information pertaining to this incident, please contact the Rollins College Campus Safety Department at 407-646-2999 (X2999) or campussafety@rollins.edu

Sexual Assault - Forcible Fondling
 
Case # 14-276
 
October 8, 2014
 
In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), Rollins College issues timely notices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus. The College may distribute timely notices using a variety of means, including emails, text  messages, flyers, and website announcements posted on the Campus Safety website (http://www.rollins.edu/safety/clery_act_compliance/timely_notices.html .)
 
The Rollins College Campus Safety Department received information about a suspicious male inside of Sutton Place Apartments on Thursday, October 2, 2014. Officers responded to the scene and made contact with the individual, Andrew Adams, who is unaffiliated with the college. Adams was unable to identify a student who he was supposedly there visiting and could not explain why he was in the building. Officers contacted Winter Park Police and had him trespassed from Rollins College property without incident. At a later time, a female student stated that she invited Adams to campus to meet in person for the first time. Once in her apartment, Adams began acting in a strange, sexually aggressive manner. During the time in the apartment he, on at least two occasions, touched parts of her body for his own sexual gratification without obtaining her consent. The student, along with her roommates, were able to finally get Adams out of the apartment by using deception. A phone call was then made to Campus Safety reporting a suspicious person. At the time of the initial call, no inappropriate sexual contact was reported. We have attached a photo of Adams to assist the community in identifying him, should he return to campus. If you see him on Rollins College property, immediately contact Campus Safety.
 
Acquaintances, friends, or current/former romantic partners may assume that since they have had prior intimate encounters, they do not require consent for future sexual acts. Each sexual act requires verbal consent. Tactics used, by people known to the reporting party, may include intruding into personal space physically, through seemingly accidental touches or casual hugs or touches. The responding party may play on the reporting party’s emotional vulnerability or empathy by “sharing” personal information or stories so that he/she lowers their defenses. The reporting party may feel uneasy and uncomfortable, but the responding party assures them that nothing is wrong and continues their assault, ignoring requests to stop.
 
Approximately 66% of rapes are committed by acquaintances. To reduce the risk of similar crimes from happening, we recommend that everyone familiarize themselves with what constitutes sexual assault and, as a community, be vigilant in stopping it. For example:
 
-          Always seek consent. Stop your sexual advances if the other person indicates no interest or if they say "no". Engaging in any type of sexual activity without the explicit consent of your  partner is sexual assault. If either party is under the influence of alcohol, consent cannot be given.

ARSON – Mills Memorial Building

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), Rollins College issues timely notices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus.

On March 25, 2014 Campus Safety received a report of vandalism that occurred in the Off-Campus Student Lounge, on the lowest level of the Mills Memorial Building on the Rollins College campus. In this case, the officers responding encountered a variety of minor vandalism and a plugged in waffle iron with a plastic card in the center of it. The plastic was melting and starting to smoke, but the fire system had not been activated yet. With the damage that was done and circumstances surrounding the iron, we believe that it was intentionally left to cause additional damage and disruption to the campus community. At this time, the Campus Safety Department, is conducting an investigation to determine who might have been responsible for this incident.

 

To protect yourself from similar crimes, always be aware of your surroundings and take responsibility for your community. Fire is one of the largest threats to college students, especially in residential communities. If you see a person violating a college policy related to fire safety, immediately notify Campus Safety. By taking action, you might be saving lives.

 

If you have information that might be helpful as this investigation continues, please contact Rollins College Campus Safety by telephone at 407-646-2999 (campus extension X2999) or via e-mail at security@listserv.rollins.edu .

Sexual Assault - Forcible Rape

Case # 14-080

February 23, 2014

 

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), 20 U.S.C. 1092 (f), Rollins College issues timely notices to notify the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the College determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus. The College may distribute timely notices using a variety of means, including emails, text  messages, flyers, and website announcements posted on the Campus Safety website (http://www.rollins.edu/safety/clery_act_compliance/timely_notices.html .

 

The Rollins College Campus Safety Department has received a report of a sexual assault – forcible rape, that occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, February 23, 2014 between two undergraduate resident students. Due to the initial collection of information, spring break, and wanting to confer with the complainant upon her return, the timely notification was delayed.

 

The incident took place inside of a residential hall on campus and an investigation is underway to collect all pertinent information. According to initial statements, the two parties were acquaintances and were both under the influence of alcohol. It was reported that consent was not given, or could not be given due to the level of intoxication, by the complainant to engage in sexual activity. Rollins College has offered resources and advocacy to both parties as they work through this process.

 

Acquaintances, friends, or current/former romantic partners may assume that since they have had prior intimate encounters, they do not require consent for future sexual acts. Each sexual act requires verbal consent. Tactics used by a respondent known to the complainant may include intruding into the complainant’s personal space physically, though seemingly accidental touches or casual hugs or touches. The respondent may play on the complainant’s emotional vulnerability or empathy by “sharing” personal information or stories so that he/she lowers their defenses. The complainant may feel uneasy and uncomfortable, but the respondent assures them that nothing is wrong and continues their assault, ignoring requests to stop.

 

On college campuses, alcohol plays a large role in sexual assault and rape. An attacker, often someone the person knows, may encourage or force a complainant to drink alcohol and become intoxicated or may take advantage of a complainant’s intoxication to forcibly assault him/her without consent. Respondents will seek out venues where intoxicated potential victims are likely to be, such as parties and bars. Some will put date rape drugs, such as GHB, Ketamine, or Rohypnol, into a person’s drink to incapacitate them. GHB, also known as Liquid Ecstasy, relaxes a person’s inhibitions, causing drowsiness, and may result in a loss of consciousness. Ketamine, also known as Special K, makes a person feel as if they are separated from their body and detached from reality. Rohypnol, or Roofies, causes a person to become drowsy, dizzy, and lack motor control and coordination. Respondents may also use pressure to try drugs as part of a social event before luring them away from the group.

 

Approximately 66% of rapes are committed by acquaintances. To reduce the risk of similar crimes from happening, we recommend that everyone familiarize themselves with what constitutes sexual assault and, as a community, be vigilant in stopping it. For example:

 

-          Always seek consent. Stop your sexual advances if the other person indicates no interest or if they say "no". Engaging in any type of sexual activity without the explicit consent of your  partner is sexual assault. If either party is under the influence of alcohol, consent cannot be given.

 

-          The absence of a "no" is not a "yes."

 

-           Avoid engaging in, supporting, or encouraging sexual harassment.

 

-          Do NOT use threats or coercion to engage in sexual activity.

 

-          Call for help if you witness a violent crime.

 

-          Do not take advantage of someone who is passed out, incoherent, or otherwise incapacitated.

 

If you have been the victim of a sexual assault, Campus Safety encourages you to report it. If you would like the help of a confidential victim advocate for your own situation or someone you know, please contact:

Sexual Assault - Forcible Fondling

Case # 13-483

December 6, 2013

 

The Rollins College Campus Safety Department was made aware of a sexual assault - forcible fondling that took place at approximately 1:30am on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 involving two undergraduate students.

Unfortunately, although the majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by friends, acquaintances, or partners of the victims, the majority of sexual assault prevention tips are modeled after perpetrators that are unknown to the victim. Recognizing this, and recognizing that, ultimately, it is not the responsibility of the victim to prevent their own assault, we nonetheless offer the following advice to promote general risk awareness:

 

- Be aware of your surroundings. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you find a way to get out of a bad situation.

- If you are consuming alcohol, ensure you have at least one friend that will help you get home safely if your decision-making ability becomes impaired.

- Make sure your cell phone is with you and charged.

- If possible, try to avoid being isolated with someone you don't trust or someone you don't know.

- Trust your instincts. If a situation or location feels unsafe or uncomfortable, it probably isn't the best place to be.

- If you feel your safety is at risk, or need assistance or an escort on campus; please contact Campus Safety at 407/646-2999.

- Stay with groups of friends you know and trust.

Case #13-431

November 5, 2013

 

On November 5th, 2013 at 11:50 PM, Campus Safety received a call to respond to McKean Hall regarding an assault that had taken place.

Sexual Assault - Forcible Rape
Case # 13-381
October 10, 2013


The Rollins College Campus Safety Department, in cooperation with several other Departments at Rollins College, was made aware of a sexual assault - forcible rape that took place on campus at approximately 11:00 pm on Wednesday October 9, 2013 involving an individual known to the victim. The incident took place in a parked vehicle on-campus and an investigation is ongoing. The suspect is described as an African American male, 22 years old, driving a black Nissan Altima. Rollins College is providing resources and advocacy to assist the individual involved in this incident, and will continue to take actions to maintain the safety and security of the campus community.


Approximately 66% of rapes are committed by someone known to the victim. To prevent similar crimes from happening, we recommend that everyone familiarize themselves with what constitutes sexual assault and, as a community, be vigilant in stopping it:


- Always seek consent. Stop your sexual advances if the other person indicates no interest, and especially if they say "no." Engaging in any type of sexual activity without the explicit consent of your partner is sexual assault. If either party is under the influence of alcohol, consent cannot be given.
- The absence of a "no" is not a "yes."
- Avoid engaging in, supporting or encouraging sexual harassment.
- Do NOT use threats or coercion to engage in sexual activity.
- Call for help if you witness a violent crime.
- Do not take advantage of someone who is passed out, incoherent or otherwise incapacitated, and prevent others from doing so.


Unfortunately, although the majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by friends, acquaintances, or partners of the victims, the majority of sexual assault prevention tips are modeled after perpetrators that are unknown to the victim.

Sexual Assault – Forcible Fondling

Case # 13-313

September 4, 2013

 

The Rollins College Campus Safety Department was made aware of a sexual assault – forcible fondling1 incident that took place at approximately 12 noon on Sunday, September 1, 2013. According to multiple statements, a group of approximately 6 male students were walking on the sidewalk near the sand volleyball court in front of Ward Hall. They were travelling in the direction of the Walk of Fame, joking around loudly in fluent Spanish. One of the male students ran up to a female student, who was in a small group - walking in the opposite direction, latched his hands behind her back and pressed his face to her chest. After holding her in this position for a few seconds, she pushed him away, cursed at him and he let go. The rest of the male students began laughing, not understanding the seriousness of the situation.

 

To prevent similar crimes from happening, we recommend that everyone familiarize themselves with what constitutes sexual assault and, as a community, be vigilant in stopping it:

 

-          Always seek consent. Stop your sexual advances if the other person indicates no interest, and especially if they say "no."

SIMPLE ASSAULT/BATTERY

Case # 13-302

August 30, 2013

 

The Rollins College Campus Safety Department was made aware of a simple assault/battery that took place at approximately 2am on Wednesday, August 28, 2013. According to witness statements, a male resident in in McKean Hall answered his door and allowed two known students in. A short time after they entered, one of the students struck the resident multiple times in the face, causing physical injuries. We have not been able to determine a motive or other reason for the altercation. The student left the scene and exited McKean Hall. Residential Life staff and Campus Safety personnel were called to the scene and began the process of collecting information and supporting the resident.  Winter Park Police was contacted and determined there was probable cause to arrest the student for battery. At approximately 5am, the student came into the Campus Safety office and was ultimately placed under arrest and transported to the Winter Park Police Department.

 

After collecting preliminary information, it was deemed necessary to summarily suspend the student to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the College community. A summary suspension means that a student will be denied access to residence halls and/or to the campus (including classes) and/or all other College activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible unless written permission is obtained from the Vice President for Student Affairs or designee.

 

It is difficult to provide suggestions on how to take preventative steps to reduce the risk of similar situations when the reported perpetrator is known to you. We recognize that alcohol probably played a key role in how this situation unfolded, according to witness statements and other reports. Understand that alcohol can lead to hyper-aggressive behavior and a lowering of inhibitions that may lead to negative or destructive behavior.

 

Campus Safety and a number of departments within Student Affairs are continuing to work with the resident, student and their respective families as they proceed through this process. If you have any additional information pertaining to this incident, please contact the Rollins College Campus Safety Department at 407-646-2999 (X2999) or campussafety@rollins.edu .
