Suspicious Activity

Dated 3/1/2018

Over the past few weeks we have received reports from female community members stating they have been approached by unknown, non-student females. These non-students are engaging our community members stating they are from a local church looking to spread the word about "God the Mother." We have also been made aware that an unsubstantiated social media post is claiming that these non-students are recruiting for a sex trafficking ring. Through our investigation with other law enforcement agencies we have determined that there is no credible evidence to show any affiliation with a sex trafficking ring. We believe this to be an internet hoax. No connection to criminal activity has been linked at this time. The non-students on campus proselytizing are however a true fact.

University Police officials urge all community members to report any activity or persons that they believe is suspicious in nature to ensure the safety of the community.
