A sexual assault was reported to police on Dec. 3, 2020. The assault happened while on a date a year prior, and campus security was notified through an online submission form.

Hitting the snow

Six students were snowboarding on campus near Wildcat Village on Jan. 26. Several of the students were still there when the officer asked them not to snowboard on campus, and the students left without issue.

Rolling down the stairs

Two skateboarders were reported doing tricks on some stairs and grinding on the railings at the Ogden Campus on Jan. 21. When asked, the skateboarders said they were just going off the stairs and weren’t skilled enough to do any railing tricks and showed the officer what they’d been filming. An officer informed them they couldn’t be skateboarding on campus, and they left without issue.

Sucking the fun out of the tank

While on patrol on Jan. 21, an officer witnessed a male pouring gas into his car. When the officer approached, he noticed tools next to the cars that were consistent with gas syphoning tools. The officer wrote a citation for fuel theft and cleared the scene.
