San Jacinto Residence Hall, 309 East 21st Street

Occurred on 9-27-05 at 11:30 PM.

Suspicious Activity: A UT student reported that a current UT student has made several attempts to gain information about the location of his former girl friend through her former roommate. The complainant reported that the subject gained access into the dormitory and placed his foot into the doorway preventing the reporting person from shutting the door.

Crime Prevention Tip:

In this case there are several "Red Flags". You have a subject with obsessive behavior that is attempting to locate an ex-girlfriend. This same person is going to great lengths in order to achieve this goal. This type of behavior is very indicative in abusive type relationships and with early intervention the victim, as well as the abuser, can obtain needed services. These services are available on campus at the University Health Services http://www.utexas.edu/student/health/ and Employee Assistance Program http://www.utexas.edu/hr/eap/ . This type of behavior is not normal and just like in this case needs to be reported to the police.
