Timely Warnings: September struck with fondlings at NMSU

Multiple reports of fondling were reported to NMSU Police Department.

On Monday, New Mexico State University Police released a timely warning for two fondling cases that occurred in early September. 

The first reported case happened on Sept. 5 where a student was allegedly fondled over her clothing by an acquaintance. The individual accused of the fondling has since been identified by NMSUPD. The incident reportedly took place in an unnamed dormitory on campus. 

On Sept. 10, a different student reported that the same individual mentioned in the Sept. 5 case case had fondled over her clothing as well. This alleged incident happened in a different residence hall on campus. 

The specific locations and names are not being released by NMSUPD to protect the victims’ identity. 

The Associated Students of NMSU launched an anti-violence and sexual assault campaign during the fall 2018 semester in an effort to make the campus a safer environment. The campaign was titled “STAND UP, SPEAK OUT.”

The campaign encouraged students to be “active bystanders” when it comes to violence. The initiative focused on three ways to intervene in a violent situation: direct, delegate or distract.
