Broken window shatters peace in Townhouses

A broken window was reported in Townhouses South at 3:45 p.m. on Oct. 2. A Campus Police officer met with a resident of South, who said she was in her residence at 3:30 p.m. when she heard a window break nearby. She said she went outside to see where the broken window was. She saw the rear window of one of the houses had been broken but there was no one outside or in the general area of the building.

She said the resident of the room was not present at the time the window broke. The student and the officer were then approached by another resident, who observed the broken window from his room as well.

An investigation revealed that the exterior piece of glass on the window was broken, not the interior. The landscape underneath of the windows is comprised of rocks but there were no rocks visible among the broken glass.

There is no further information at this time.

At 2 p.m. on Oct. 2 a victim reported a suspicious Asian male was following her.

The victim said that on Sept. 28 she was waiting for a bus at the NJ Transit bus stop between Brower Student Center and Lions’ Stadium. She said the suspect got on the same bus and dropped a bag on her foot after she sat down to do some work. The suspect apologized and started talking to her. The victim said she continued to speak to him to be polite since she thought he might have a disability.

The victim said the suspect asked her at one point what the difference is between girls and boys, as well as some other questions, because he had to write a paper on the differences between boys and girls.

The victim said when she got off the bus in Trenton, he got off the bus as well. She said the suspect kept looking back as they both walked in the same direction to the train boarding station.

Just before the train was ready to leave, she got on board and saw the suspect, who also saw her. She walked through the train station and realized he had followed her to her seat. When he tried to talk to her again, she felt too uncomfortable in his presence so she ignored him and he eventually left.

The victim said she had seen a similar incident in The Signal so she decided to report it to Campus Police. She saw the suspect again on Oct. 1 in a class in Forcina Hall when he walked past her class without noticing her.
