Campus Police Take Active Role in Local Arrests

     Within the past two weeks, campus police have assisted the
Northern District in making two arrests of suspects wanted in
connection with two separate Charles Village robberies. 
     On Dec. 27, Officers Bill Dowdy and Gerald Dengler responded
to a call from a faculty member who had been robbed by two men on
Christmas Day at the NationsBank in the 3100 block of St. Paul
Street. After spotting one of the men from inside the Hopkins
Store she phoned Homewood Security. Immediately, dispatcher Angel
Johnson alerted the city police. While Off. Dengler stayed with
the victim, Off. Dowdy followed the suspect, and within minutes
he was arrested at Greenmount Ave. and 31st Street. 
     On Jan. 9, two Hopkins students were robbed just before 2
a.m. by two males in the 3000 block of St. Paul Street. After
running from their assailants, the students  called city police.
Campus Security also responded to the call. Riding with Lt. Wayne
Cox, the students were able to observe and identify their
assailants about an hour later. Lt. Cox continued to observe the
suspects until the police arrived and made the arrest.
     "It's fortunate that the suspects in both cases were spotted
by their victims, who remained clear-thinking and courageous,"
said Ronald Mullen, chief of Campus Security. "The subsequent
arrests reflect the competence and diligence of our security
personnel and the outstanding cooperation our office enjoys with
the Northern District police," he added.
