Dear Patriots,

Mason Police is informing the campus community of a suspicious incident.

A Mason student reported being grabbed and kissed without her consent by an unknown male suspect while walking outside of Enterprise Hall on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at 4:42 PM.

The male suspect is not a Mason student and was described as a black male with light skin, early 20’s, approximately 5’ 8” tall, 150 lbs., with short black hair, brown eyes, thin dark mustache and patchy facial hair, wearing a black T-shirt, black pants, and black shoes.

Shortly after the incident, Mason Police officers responded to the scene and located an individual matching the description provided by the victim. As officers approached the suspect, the suspect fled the scene and ran into Fenwick Library before being detained by officers. Following an interview with the suspect, officers barred the suspect from campus while continuing to investigate the incident.

This case remains an ongoing criminal investigation as Mason Police has reason to believe that the suspect might be involved in other similar incidents on campus. If you have any information pertaining to this incident or similar incidents, we encourage you to call Mason Police at (703) 993-2810 or the anonymous tip line at (703) 993-4111.

Mason Police also accepts anonymous crime tips online at https://police.gmu.edu/contact-us/submittip/ or through the https://ready.gmu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/RaveGuardian_Poster.pdf

Message from the Univeristy:

“Dear Mason Community,

I am sad to share that this morning one of our students was found dead on the Fairfax campus. Police believe there is no foul play suspected in the death and there is no threat to our community.

The university is in touch with the student’s family, and out of respect to them we are not identifying the student until all appropriate notifications have been made. Senior staff from Housing and Residence Life have met with students and staff that were closely connected and impacted by this tragedy. Staff from Counseling and Psychological Services and University Life will continue to meet with students and others affected by this sudden loss.

The death of a student affects many people differently. If you or someone you know is affected by this event, please don’t hesitate to seek help. Students can call the Student Support and Advocacy Center (703-993-3686), or Counseling and Psychological Services (703-993-2380), and faculty and staff can contact the Office of Employee Relations (703-993-3878).

Thank you.
Rose Pascarell
Vice President for University Life”

Dear Patriots,

Mason Police is informing the campus community of a suspicious incident.

On Thursday, April 25th, at 1:12 PM, after departing the Fairfax Campus, the parent of a 17-year-old prospective student contacted Mason Police by phone to make an informal report of a suspicious incident that occurred approximately 20 minutes earlier inside the men’s restroom on the main level of the Johnson Center near Freshens.

The prospective student disclosed that while using the restroom, an unknown male suspect looked over the stall and made eye contact with the prospective student before entering the stall next to him. At this point, the unknown male suspect protruded both legs under the stall and used his legs to rub the prospective student’s legs. No words were exchanged during this event. The prospective student left the restroom without further incident.

The unknown male suspect was described as an older white male of average build with gold/white "light" colored short hair; no glasses, hat or facial hair; wearing a blue plaid dress style shirt tucked into light kaki colored slack style trousers; carrying a large brown brief case with a strap and a lanyard around his neck with an ID and Key.
Anyone with information pertaining to this incident can contact Mason Police at (703) 993-2810.

If a similar incident occurs in the future, Mason Police encourages members of the campus community to immediately call Mason Police at (703) 993-2810 or the anonymous tip line at (703) 993-4111 with a description of the suspect.

Mason Police also accepts anonymous crime tips online at https://police.gmu.edu/contact-us/submittip/ or through the RAVE Guardian mobile app.

On the last day of #npstw We honor CO King. Thank you for your service to #georgemasonuniversity And #gmupolice

I began my dispatching career at George Mason University a little over a year ago now and it’s been pretty awesome. I’ve always prided my self on being a helping hand to those in need and what cooler way than dispatching Police Officers to help.

One of the best things about being a dispatcher at Mason is knowing that we promote the Safety and Well-being of the Mason Community. The department is always focused on keeping Faculty, Students and most importantly its Employees safe. It is a very satisfying feeling to know that at the end of the day, we as Dispatchers as well as our Officers were able to effectively serve the Mason community.

Outside of dispatching, I enjoy Hiking, playing Disc Golf with my Aussie-Doodle, Sophie and relaxing.
