Police arrest student in connection to Endicott College attacks

(Continued)

Subsequent to the attacks, campus officials sent out two alerts via text message and email to notify the college community of what police dubbed a “serious weekend assault.”

School officials also sent emails to parents and students Monday and last night to keep the community updated on the issue.

“Endicott takes great pride in having a safe and respectful campus and we’re saddened by the occurrences,” said Endicott College spokeswoman Joanne Waldner. “We’ve worked very closely with the campus community and have been able to get to the point where the police have been able to make an arrest, and we’re pleased that that has happened.”

Endicott has 24 security officers covering the campus which stretches across 235 acres of land, more than 270 security cameras and three cars on patrol in the area.

Following the attacks, the school beefed up security to prevent further issues and reminded students to follow safety procedures when walking on campus — for example, not walking alone at night.

Despite the incidents, Wylie said he takes pride in the students, faculty and staff that were able to come together to provide local authorities with the information they needed to make an arrest.

“It’s a very safe campus,” Wylie said. “Random acts are going to happen. We don’t want them, and we do everything to prevent them from happening.”
