Over the past week, University of Maryland Police responded to reports of Title IX violations — both criminal and non-criminal — as well as reports of domestic violence and suspicious activity, according to police reports.
Criminal Title IX violation
On Monday at 11:31 a.m., University Police received a report of a rape incident that occurred last March, University Police spokeswoman Sgt. Rosanne Hoaas said. The case remains under investigation.
Non-criminal Title IX violation
University Police answered a call Feb. 16 at about 10 a.m. after a university employee reported that someone had entered their office space at Susquehanna Hall and left items on their desk, Hoaas said.
Officers met with the person responsible for the unauthorized visit and told the visitor it was inappropriate to access the office space. They also told him to refrain from contacting the university employee going forward. This case is closed.
On Monday at 3:06 a.m., University Police responded to a domestic violence report outside South Campus Commons 1, Hoaas said.
Officials searched the area and didn’t locate anyone until 3:32 a.m., when an officer found a man, who is not affiliated with this university, and a female university student in front of the Main Administration Building. Both individuals spoke with the police, who issued the man an immediate denial to the campus, Hoaas said. This case is closed.
