Police step up patrols, urge caution
Sexual assaults reported at Elon
By Frank Isley
Students have been advised to be cautious and officers from the
Elon College Police Department have “beefed up” patrols around
the campus as a result of sexual assaults against two female students
during the month of October.
According to a report filed with die Elon College Police Depart
ment, the first attack occurred on Oct. 15 at about 8 p.m. at the chain-
link fence between Hardee’s and the Oaks dormitories.
The student was grabbed from behind by a man who placed his
hand over her mouth and attempted to force her into a drainage ditch.
The girl, however, kicked the man in the groin, broke free and
screamed. The attacker fled, driving off in a rust-colored 1978 or
1979 Monte Carlo.
According to another report, the second assault occurred on Oct.
23 at approximately II: 15 p.m. as a student was jogging on the track
near the intersection of Williamson and Haggard avenues.
A man walking on the track grabbed the student as she passed him
and exposed himself to her, but the woman pushed him away and
ran toward the dorms near Harper Lake.
Police Chief Dan Ingle of Elon College said his department has
a composite drawing of the suspect in the second assault, but he said

The assailant in the second attack was a white male about six feet

“Patrol has been beefed up around the track and the Oaks,” said
Ingle. The police department has also requested and will receive
assistance from the State Bureau of Investigation in apprehending the
Ingle said the best precautions for students to take would be to refrain
from walking alone and try to seek a route that is well lighted.
Ingle also suggested that students carry a whistle to startle any
assailant and attract attention.
If a student needs to go somewhere but cannot find anyone to ac
company her, Ingle said, she should contact the police department
and they will be glad to provide an escort.
