2. June 2014 Campus Crime Summary:


One forcible sex offense was reported on June 26, 2014. In that incident, a 31 year old non-WSU female reported she was standing in line inside a store front on the first floor of the Ghafari Residence Hall at 695 Merrick, at about 12:40 pm. Unexpectedly, a unknown male customer slapped her on the buttocks. The male offender then left the building. Video tape surveillance footage was reviewed and a clear image of the offender was recorded, however the victim, although offended. refused to cooperate and did not wish to prosecute criminally.


Three non-forcible sex offenses were reported to WSUPD in late April 2014, when Officers received information that a 20 year old male student and resident of a WSU Housing facility may have been having an inappropriate relationship with a 15 year old girl. 

On April 28, 2014, Officers went to the Residence Hall to look for the 15 year old female who did not show up at her high school that day. On their arrival, the male resident told the officers that the juvenile female was not there. However, within a couple of minutes the 15 year old female walked out of a bedroom and was still getting dressed when she encountered the officers. 

The 15 year old female subsequently told the officers that she and the male had just finished having sexual intercourse prior to the officers arrival. A follow-up interview by Investigators revealed that both parties had consensual sexual intercourse on two prior occasions inside the same Residence Hall room.

Engaging in consensual sexual intercourse with a minor person (under age 16) is a felony in Michigan (commonly referred to as statutory rape) and, upon conviction, is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a lifetime listing on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.

The results of the completed criminal investigation were turned over the the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office for review in June 2014. Cooperation with Investigators, on the part of the 15 year old female, has been sporadic at best. The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office will not make a final determination on criminal charges, against the male student resident, until the 15 year old female cooperates with the Prosecutor's Office and provides the information needed to make a final determination on criminal prosecution of the male involved. The criminal case is still open and under formal review as of this writing. 

These three Non-Forcible Sex Offenses, which occurred in April 2014, are added to the 2014 year-to-date totals (see *) in the middle column (Jan-June 2014) shown above.


One Robbery incident was reported in June 2014. On MondayJune 22014, a 32 year old male WSU student reported that he was the victim of an Robbery Not Armed incident while walking on Antoinette between Woodward and Cass Avenue.

The student states that at about 10:45 am, he was walking on the sidewalk when the below described subject ran up from behind, briefly grabbed onto him and stripped the gold chain off his neck. The offender continued running and was last seen getting into a car, driven by another person, on Burroughs west of Woodward. The student was not injured. Police response was delayed because the student called 911, rather than WSUPD.

Black Male, in his 20's, approx. 6 foot tall, 175 pounds, last seen wearing a purple hooded sweatshirt. light blue baseball cap with a possible White Sox logo and bright white gym shoes


Seventeen (17) incidents of Larceny (theft of unattended property) were reported from fifteen different locations on campus during June 2014. Some of the items left unattended, and subsequently stolen, include five bikes, one laptop, one iPhone, one Galaxy notebook, one book bag with textbooks, one data-port.

Remember it is physically impossible for a thief to steal something that isn't there. If something is valuable to you - it may be valuable to someone else. Please do not leave your valuables unattended.


Two vehicles were reported stolen from university parking facilities during June 2014, while no vehicles were reported stolen from city streets immediately adjacent to a campus locations during the same time period.
