Security Update

Time to Reclaim Lost Bicycles
     Prior to the Intersession, Homewood Security officers
brought in a number of unsecured bicycles for safekeeping. Some,
however, have yet to be claimed. Anyone who may have misplaced,
lost, or has been unable to locate their bicycle on campus--and
did not report it--is encouraged to call the Security Office, at
516-4600, between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. To claim your property,
be prepared to provide a detailed description of your bicycle,
including the date, time and location that you last saw it.

Update on Robberies During the Winter Break
     Corporate Security officers at The Johns Hopkins Medical
Institutions have helped identify the suspect wanted in an armed
assault and robbery of a student that occurred at 12:05 p.m. on
Jan. 24 off campus in the 800 block of North Rutland Avenue. His
arrest will mark the fifth successful collaboration between the
university and city police in resolving a robbery of a member of
the university during the winter break.
     Suspects also have been arrested and charged in connection
with the following robberies: two Homewood campus students of an
ATM card just before 2 a.m. on Jan. 9; a research scientist at an
ATM machine at the NationsBank in the 3100 block of St. Paul
Street at 12:20 p.m. on Christmas Day; and a JHMI employee at the
same ATM machine at 7:50 a.m. on Jan. 31. An arrest also has been
made in the armed robbery of the Royal Farm Store at 12 E. 33rd
St. on Dec. 30.
     Hopkins security officers on all campuses recommend using
only ATM machines located on campus or those inside well-lit
establishments that are open for business. Students and employees
are encouraged to remain alert at all times and to pay special
attention to any suspicious persons who may be approaching them.
Whenever possible, travel with a friend or escort.
