Timely Warning (22-10)
Clery Crime: Burglary
Under the Clery Act, the University of Florida issues Timely Warning messages regarding Clery Act crimes which pose a serious and continuing threat to the campus community.
The University of Florida Police Department is currently investigating a possible Burglary that was reported to have occurred Sunday (11/20/2022) sometime between 3:15 AM-3:25 AM on the University of Florida campus in an on-campus Fraternity House. According to the victim, he arrived home to find three unknown males in the house. The victim stated he confronted the three suspects who then fled on foot.
The suspects are described as white males, 18 to 20 years of age, two of average height and one taller. Two of the suspects were last seen wearing dark colored hoodies pulled up with purple surgical masks. The third had a grey hoodie pulled up with a dark colored face covering. The UFPD will be increasing patrols and are actively working leads toward identifying the suspects.
The University of Florida strongly believes that no person is responsible for harm inflicted by another person.
Criminal incidents can be reported to UF CSAs who are designated, trained, and mandatory reporters under the Clery Act when victims chose not to report to law enforcement.
Reporting to law enforcement is encouraged by calling 9-1-1 or through the GatorSafe app.
Be sure to lock up your vehicles, residential hall rooms, and offices when you leave. Remove any valuables from sight or take them with you when you leave.
Do not allow anyone to follow you in to your residential hall or a secured area as you enter and secure spaces that are unoccupied to reduce the risk of a crime of opportunity.
Trust your instincts. If you feel uneasy or sense something is wrong, do what you can to get out of that situation or call for assistance.
