To UBC’s Vancouver Campus Community:
The RCMP today released a composite drawing of a suspect that may be linked to six sexual assaults on our campus.
This is an encouraging development and I urge you to take a look at the drawing, share it widely with your friends and colleagues, and provide any information – no matter how insignificant it might seem – to the RCMP tip lines: 778.290.5291 or 1.877.543.4822. The drawing is now posted at http://www.ubc.ca/staysafe.
Responding to these stranger sexual assaults is our top priority. In addition to extra resources the RCMP has devoted to the investigation, UBC continues to enhance security and support services by increasing Campus Security patrols around student residences, promoting AMS Safewalk and RezWalk programs, and proactively responding to concerns over lighting.
We encourage you to continue to look out for one another, trust your instincts, and call AMS Safewalk rather than walk alone at night. Please visit our Stay Safe website (http://www.ubc.ca/staysafe) for up-to-date information, as well as a list of support services.
