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

Remember:

  • It is a crime to intentionally touch someone against his or her will, regardless of the situation.

  • 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).
