The following information was received anonymously through the University of Florida Police Department’s Silent Witness reporting system.

The individual who contacted the police department reported seeing a suspicious van near Fraternity Row on Museum Road Sunday evening at approximately 6:10 p.m. The reporting individual said the van followed her. The van was described as blue (dark teal) and occupied by two black males in their 20’s.

The UFPD wants to remind everyone of these safety considerations:

Report suspicious activities or individuals immediately by dialing 9-1-1.
Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. This is particularly true if you are wearing headphones and may not be able to hear someone near or behind you.
If someone bothers you, don’t be embarrassed to attract attention to yourself. Yell!
Avoid walking alone if at all possible.

If someone stops and asks for directions, avoid getting close to the individual.
