On Sunday, Sept. 17th, UIC Police were notified that a battery/fondling occurred at around 11am at 1002 South Damon Ave. The victim, a UIC Student, stated that she was waiting at the bus stop when she was approached by an unknown offender. The offender motioned as if he wanted a cigarette, but when he got close to her he grabbed her arm. The offender then pulled her into him, and he grabbed her buttocks. The offender walked away West bound on Taylor Steet. The offender is described as a male, 20-30 years old, 5’06” tall, slim build, wearing an orange shirt and black pants.
CPD will lead the investigation. Anyone with information should call 312-996-2830.

Public safety advisories are distributed to the university community in compliance with the federal Clery Act. UIC Police may also issue notifications for off-campus crimes in the interest of public-safety awareness. Security tips are standard precautions, not special or incident-specific measures. Offender descriptions and precise locations are provided only to aid in the identification of possible suspects. Updates to investigations are not sent by email but will be posted online at: emergency.uic.edu/public-safety-advisory/

Urgent notifications may be sent via both INSTANT TEXT MESSAGE (SMS) and URGENT mass e-mails. SMS messages — issued only in cases of immediate threat to health and safety, such as a tornado alert, or a major disruption to travel — are faster and more reliable than e-mail. The campus strongly recommends that you register your cell phone for SMS messages at sms.uic.edu
