Timely Warning: Threats Made to Campus Employee


Timely Warning

November 14, 2014

An unknown suspect has left a series of notes threatening the personal safety of a Cypress College employee. The College is asking the campus community to be observant and to report any unusual activity. The notes were left in the employee’s work area, all at times when the office was secured, but unattended.

The Cypress Police Department is investigating three separate incidents in which the threatening notes were left for the employee. The Campus Safety Department is also reviewing surveillance video.

The first note was left on the morning of Friday, November 7. Notes were also left for the employee on the morning of Friday, November 14, and again that afternoon. The notes were directed at the employee, contained a specific threat of harm, and used hate speech.

Students and employees are reminded that suspicious activity should be reported to Campus Safety and/or Cypress Police immediately. Additionally, students are reminded that Campus Safety can be reached 24-7 at (714) 484-7387, and that it is important to program that number into their mobile phones for quick access.­ Students are also encouraged to sign up for text messaging notifications in the myGateway portal by logging in at mg.nocccd.edu.
