Sexual Assault and Aggravated Assault Incidents Reported at UH Mānoa

Today, Thursday, February 4, 2016, a sexual assault was reported to DPS. The incident was reported to have occurred on Friday, January 22, 2016 in a UH Mānoa residence hall.

Also today, an assault incident was reported to DPS, involving the same victim and suspect. This incident allegedly occurred yesterday, February 3, outside Edmondson Hall, and the subject may have been armed with a gun.

The suspect is known to the victim, and the victim is receiving support services.

The male suspect is described as:

  • Complexion: Tan
  • Hair: Brown
  • Eyes: Brown
  • Weight: 240 lbs.
  • Height: 5'8"
  • Age: Early 20's
  • Facial hair: facial hair on chin
  • Other distinguishing characteristics: Tattoos on legs

Remember:

  • It is a crime to intentionally touch someone against his or her will, regardless of the situation.
  • Responsibility is with the perpetrator, not the survivor -- no one deserves, asks for or provokes sexual assault.
  • UHM provides counseling services to students. For information, contact the Counseling and Student Development Center at (808) 956-7927.
  • If you feel that you or others are in danger, look for a blue light Emergency Call Box, or call DPS at (808) 956-6911 or HPD at 911.
  • To report suspicious, illegal, or unusual activity on campus, call DPS at (808) 956-6911 or HPD at 911.

Although the survivor is never at fault, prioritizing one's personal safety is recommended. Risk of attack by a stranger may be reduced by:

  • Being aware of your surroundings, looking assertive, and keeping a safe distance from strangers.
  • Encouraging friends to travel in pairs or with trusted companions, especially at night or in remote areas.
  • Trusting your intuition – if a particular situation makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, choose an alternative
  • Keeping rooms locked at all times
  • Utilizing campus transportation resources. Call (808) 956-SAFE (7233) for our Security Escort Service, which is available 7 days a week, from dusk until dawn.
  • If you feel that you or others are in danger, look for a blue light Emergency Call Box, call DPS at (808) 956-6911, or call HPD at 911.
  • To report suspicious, illegal, or unusual activity on campus, call DPS at (808) 956-6911 or HPD at 911.

Resources for Survivors:
It is hard to know what to do, how to feel, or what your options are after a sexual assault. Please know that you are not alone. If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, here are some options*:

  1. Go to a safe place.
  2. Call the Sex Abuse Treatment Center at (808) 524-7273, a 24-hour hotline. They will send a counselor to meet you at the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children's Emergency Room at 1319 Punahou Street. All of their services are free and confidential. A medical examination is important because it can protect you from possible injuries, STDs, and pregnancy resulting from the assault. The Sex Abuse Treatment Center does not require you to report the assault to the police, but may be able to hold evidence should you decide to report at a later time. Advocates at the Sex Abuse Treatment Center can assist if you decide to report to the police at that time.
  3. Talk with an advocate or counselor who is trained to assist survivors about the emotional and physical impacts of sex assault. On campus, you can reach either the PAU Violence Program at (808) 956-8059 or the Counseling and Student Development Center at (808) 956-7927 to talk to an advocate or trained counselor. Trained confidential advocates are also available through the Sex Abuse Treatment Center.
  4. You may report the assault to Honolulu Police at 911 or to the UH Mānoa Department of Public Safety (DPS) at (808) 956-6911. DPS is available 24 hours a day; accessible to you whether you live on or off campus.
  5. Call a family member, friend, or campus counselor. UHM provides counseling services to students, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.. Residents in Student Housing may access these services through Counselors-in-Residence (CIRs) who also live in Student Housing. CIRs are also available for walk-in appointments from 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM on weekdays, and after-hours emergency counseling on evenings, weekends, and holidays. CIRs may be reached by contacting your Resident Assistant (RA), the RA on-call, or a Resident Director (RD). For more information, contact the Counseling and Student Development Center at (808) 956-7927.
  6. Preserve any physical evidence of the assault. If possible, avoid showering or brushing your teeth, and save all of the clothing you were wearing at the time or linens that were used. Place all garments in a paper (not plastic) bag.
  7. Write down as much as you can remember about the circumstances of the assault, including a description of the assailant.
  8. Get information about legal issues. You may contact the Sex Abuse Treatment Center (808-524-7273) or the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) Sexual Assault Hotline (1-800-656-HOPE).
*Resources listed here are available to sexual assault survivors regardless of whether or not they decide to report the crime.

Another suspected computer crime at UH

by Ian Lind
from ilind.net/2012/04/30/another-suspected-computer-crime-at-uh/

Last year at this time, a UH Mānoa graduate student in the Geography Department surprised a would-be burglar in his office. The burglar ran, and in the chase dropped his backpack. Inside were burglary tools and electronic parts that may have been part of a surveillance system.

On Friday, a USB key logger was discovered in a Saunders Hall computer lab, also in the Geography Department, according to a email alert send out by staff in the College of Social Sciences.

LoggerWhen attached to a computer, a key logger simply records everything that is typed and saves it to its own internal memory to be retrieved later. It can be used to steal confidential information such as accounts and passwords. It doesn't require any additional software to be installed on the computer, so it can be put in place quickly and easily.

Logger attached to a computer
Here's what the device would look like when installed.

The room where the device was discovered is used for the department's lecture series, according to its web site.

The email alert advised "anyone who may have entered their personal passwords while using Saunders 443B within the last few weeks to change their passwords now."

In addition, it suggested that when using any public computer, "as a precaution against future risks you may want to inspect your keyboard connection to ensure that a key logger is not attached.

Announcement

This past Monday's campus-wide electrical outage gives us an opportunity to review appropriate responses to the kinds of emergencies that may arise on campus. While some are merely inconvenient, others may have more serious outcomes. Taking simple steps to prepare in advance can minimize the impact of the emergency and make a big difference in ensuring your own safety and well-being, as well as that of your family and colleagues, our campus and community.

For power outages, some tips to remember for home, workplace and campus:

READINESS

  • Have back-up light sources available (flashlights, emergency hallway lights); avoid using open flames (candles, lighters).
  • Back-up your computer files regularly and install surge protectors.
  • For those dealing with high-security materials, such as cash or confidential information, have procedures in place for unexpected shut-downs.

RESPONSE

  • Remain calm; provide assistance to others if necessary.
  • Turn off and unplug electronic equipment and appliances.
  • Move cautiously to a lighted area. You may need to evacuate the campus building; however, do not use the elevator.
  • If trapped in an elevator when power goes out, don't panic. Call Campus Security (956-6911) or the point of contact listed in the elevator to inform them of your situation, then wait for trained and equipped personnel to release you. Never attempt to leave the stalled elevator on your own.
  • If in a life-threatening situation on campus, call 911 after contacting Campus Security. This will provide more on-scene details to the emergency dispatcher, who will be in touch with the response team (ambulance or fire department). Security will help guide the team to your location.

RECOVERY

  • Check for any damages.
  • Replenish your emergency kits.
  • Review your disaster preparedness procedures.

We encourage you to visit these sites:

HECO's Information Handbook for Emergency Preparedness
HECO will also be making available to UH Mānoa a limited quantity of hard copies of the 2011 edition of this brochure. Copies may be ordered from Campus Security (956-8211).
