Brief: Campus Safety Notifies Campus Community of Reported Burglary, Investigation Underway

Director of Campus Safety Terri Stewart released an email to the Colgate University community with the subject “Campus Safety Notification — Burglary” on Saturday, Feb. 10. The email shared that an investigation has begun into a reported burglary that occurred at 84 Broad Street (Delta Delta Delta) earlier that morning on Feb. 10, at approximately 4.15 a.m.

Director Stewart stated that the incident is currently under investigation by the Hamilton Police Department, in cooperation with Campus Safety and the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, following their collective response to the report.

“Campus Safety, Hamilton Police and the Madison County Sheriff’s responded to a report of an unknown male entering the building who was observed exposing and touching himself while entering at least two students’ rooms,” Stewart wrote.

At this time, the email noted that certain information — including the individual’s point of entrance into the building — remains to be determined, as the investigation is ongoing.

Based on the information we have at this time, it does not appear that the individual made physical contact with any resident before fleeing, and it is unclear how he entered the building,” the message read.

Director Stewart also provided a description of the individual.

The individual is described as a white male, approximately 5’8-5’11 in height, medium build, short brown hair, possibly in his 20’s, wearing red shorts and a black hoodie,” Stewart wrote.

The campus-wide email offered assurance that Campus Safety will increase its presence at this time and remain in touch regarding developments in the investigation.

“Please note that Campus Safety will remain highly visible and increase patrols in this area,” the message read. “Additional information will be shared with the campus as we learn more.”

Director Stewart concluded by urging anyone with information about this incident to contact Campus Safety via the Colgate Guardian app or by phone at (315) 228-7333.
