Fremont Police investigating Ohlone incident

From the Ohlone Police Chief:


This is to inform you that a serious crime occurred on the Fremont campus on 13 September 2010 at approximately 1750 hours (5:50 pm) in parking lot D.

An Asian female student walked to her vehicle that was parked in Lot D and entered the vehicle. A young male that she had seen in parking lot C approached her passenger side of the vehicle and said something to her that was unintelligible as she was getting ready to back her vehicle out.

She rolled down the passenger window to hear the male. He reached into the vehicle, unlocked the door, and sat down in the front passenger seat. The male then displayed a kitchen knife and asked the female several questions.

The female student answered the questions and informed the male that her English was not very good. Another male and a female got into the rear seat of the vehicle. The second male and female had been with first male in Lot C. The female student was told to get into the back seat and she complied.

She offered her purse but it was tossed aside.

The female student tried to escape and she was grabbed by the first male and someone else grabbed her hair. The female student began to scream for help and several students and a staff member started towards her vehicle.

The two black males and black female exited the victim’s vehicle and ran in a westerly direction towards Mission Blvd.  They lost sight of the males and female as they ran into the field area.

Campus Police was notified and an officer responded. Upon determining what had occurred, the officer contacted Fremont P.D. at 7:05 pm and a Fremont P.D. officer arrived on campus at approximately 9:45 pm to take a police report.

 The female student suffered a bruise to the right upper arm but is otherwise uninjured.

 Because of the nature of the crime, the Fremont Police Department will conduct all follow-up investigations and inquiries.

 Campus Police will check the campus for any possible suspects and assist the Fremont Police with the investigation.
