Campus Safety received information on Feb. 12, 2016 of two separate suspicious incidents that occurred in the downtown Saint Peter area. Although the information received is very limited, the nature of the incidents described warrants a safety advisory.

Very little is known about the first incident. On an unspecified date, a female left a downtown bar and was approached by a vehicle with three men in it that were unknown to her. Information is unclear as to how the female ended up in the vehicle but she was able to get out of the vehicle in a different part of Saint Peter.

The second incident occurred in the early morning hours of Feb. 11, 2016 and also occurred after a female left a downtown bar. The female was approached by a vehicle with one male in it and was instructed by the male to get into the vehicle. When the female refused, the male exited the vehicle and attempted to physically put the female into the vehicle. The female was able to get away and call a friend to assist her. The vehicle in the second incident is described as a black four door sedan.

There is not enough information available to determine if the two incidents are related or if the males involved are the same. The Saint Peter Police are aware of the incidents. Neither incident occurred on campus property.

It is advised that when walking in the downtown area, to do so in groups and stay in well lighted, heavier-traffic areas. Pay attention to your surroundings and report anything suspicious to the police. DO NOT get into a vehicle with anyone you do not know.
