Campus Alert: Incident Update 10/21/22

Dear Campus Community, 

This message is in follow-up to the earlier RAVE and email alert shared regarding an early morning incident on campus.    

At approximately 6:11 a.m. today, a student resident was involved in an altercation with Campus Security and the King County Sheriff’s Office. The incident spilled out of Bldg. 7000 and continued near the King County Metro bus stops on campus resulting in damage to 2 Campus Security vehicles and minor injuries to both Campus Security and Sheriff’s Deputies. The student resident has been arrested and transported to a medical facility for medical evaluation. 

As shared in the initial update, there is no ongoing threat to campus and the incident is resolved. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Campus Security Officer David Banik and Campus Security Officer Karl Hicks for their prompt response and action to this incident, which ensured a quick resolution in the protection of campus. 

This incident highlights the escalating need on campus for additional security resources as the number of incidents grows in response to changing regional dynamics. The college will continue to analyze and make improvements where possible to ensure continued safety and security for the college community. 

The College has begun a multi-faceted investigation into this incident and will continue to engage in active discussions with regard to additional support or resources in response. The College will keep the campus informed as new recommendations are identified.
