Thanks! Don't have Facebook, so it's good to see it's getting traction elsewhere.

I get posting the stuff from BPD, but does anyone have anything to back up the reddit post mentioning the northside garage and northgate? It appears to be rumors while implying inside knowldege (specific numbers of cases and UPD reaction).
ETA: The same reddit poster also claimed the suspect was in the Barracks, looks like someone more interested in stirring things up than actually helping anyone.

Yeah, the Reddit post at this point is anecdotal and unsubstantiated, but it does mention comments left on the Ring Doorbell app, and the BPD Facebook post (neither app of which I have), so that's why I thought I'd post here to see if anybody had more information, while making sure I titled this as (RUMOR) until further information comes to light.

Always hope this type of thing isn't true, but there seems to be a decent amount of smoke around this already.

Sexual assaults late at night in that area have been extremely common for decades.

Not trying to de-rail but what's with censoring letters in "rape"?

Seeing the full word can be a trigger to SA victims. The theory behind censoring is that the censor is enough in the moment to move the mind away from the trigger mechanism, similar to how you might trip up while reading a word spelled incorrectly, and you have to start the sentence over because it interrupts you. This is supposed to lessen the chances of adverse trigger reactions such as panic attacks, flashbacks, anxiety attacks, etc., all the while everyone else who reads can still understand what the word is supposed to be!

Thanks for your curiosity! I hope this helps to explain it!

Bryan PD did post a picture in the comments of their FB post. Looks like it came from a Ring or similar type camera.

It shows a guy dressed all in black, down to his shoes, hoodie with the hood up, mask, and looks to be wearing gloves. Average build.

Not sure if this link will work:

Social media post from UPD was just a re-post of the one from BPD.

CSPD FB post says they have received calls about other incidents that were not initially reported.

Edit: the link does work if you copy and paste the whole thing.

Many of the sororities- if not all - discussed in their weekly Monday meetings last night. Stay vigilant and keep doors locked. I have a feeling this creeper is gonna try to break in to the wrong house and it won't end well for him.

Is it wrong to hope for that to happen.

Somebody oughta leave their door unlocked and be posted up down the hallway with their 12ga/AR. Maybe put some plastic down to minimize cleanup.

Get some painting supplies, put masking around the door frame and mouldings...so it doesn't look like an ambush. You can hunt deer over bait in Texas, but I don't think you can do that with humans.

So, despite the social media posts, apparently no assaults or attempted entries or even creepy dudes in hoodies have been reported to CSPD.

https://www.kbtx.com/2022/11/08/wake-sexual-assaults-bryan-police-address-rumors-conerns-other-crimes/

Now, I would be interested in knowing if there is any kind of pattern with the reported sexual assaults and the two reported attempted entry by door pulling. The first video (where the guy appeared to be wearing black) looks like a student type residence to me, based on the moped in the driveway and the bar chairs on the porch. The residence in the second video feels that way to me too, but it's just a gut feel with nothing I can really point to.

I'd also be interested in knowing if there were any reported straight burglaries in that same area. Is the suspected perp just going door to door, or is he targeting residences that he believes have female occupants?

A Message from the University Police Department
November 8, 2022
We have received many calls and messages from our campus community and concerned parents about two sexual assaults that occurred in the neighboring city of Bryan over the weekend. Because the safety of our community is paramount, officers with the Texas A&M Police Department are at heightened alert and we are increasing foot patrols in and around our residential areas.
There has been some misinformation about this weekend's criminal activity near campus circulating on social media. We take seriously the concerns some are feeling about safety on campus. This is why we are immediately increasing our security presence on campus and looking at other steps we can take to keep everyone safe. This includes reminding everyone of the resources available on campus and personal safety tips.
  • Corps Escorts are available by calling the Guard Room at 979-845-6789 when walking alone at night. This phone number is also located on the back of your Student ID.
  • Download the Code Maroon App and utilize the Friend Walk feature if off campus.
  • Blue Light phones are located across campus and can be used to call first responders in an emergency.
  • Remember to always lock your doors and windows.
  • Stay alert and aware of your surroundings.
  • If you see something, say something: Report suspicious activity to law enforcement as soon as possible.
    • University Police Department - 979-845-2345
    • Bryan Police Department - 979-209-5300
    • College Station Police Department - 979-764-3600
    • Brazos County Sheriff's Office - 979-361-4900
I would also like to take this opportunity to address why a Code Maroon alert was not issued. The Code Maroon system is utilized for active critical emergencies (i.e. in-progress situations that pose an imminent, life safety threat to the community). This includes situations such as active shooters, bomb threats, tornado warnings, etc. This system is not utilized for crime reporting.
Timely Warning notifications (Crime Alerts) are typically utilized to alert the campus to Clery crimes happening on or immediately adjacent to the campus in compliance with the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act). After consultation with the Bryan Police Department, it was determined that the crimes occurred outside of the notification area. Although a Timely Warning was not required, we utilized official social media channels to amplify the Bryan Police Department's alert and share important personal safety reminders.
We will continue to work regularly with both Bryan and College Station police, as well as the Brazos County Sheriff's Office.
We are asking the campus community to remain vigilant, utilize the safety tips and resources listed above and contact law enforcement immediately to report suspicious activity.

I had to drop something off at my son's Corps dorm last night, and I saw two UPD patrol vehicles patrolling while I was on campus (briefly). My son also told me they have double-staffed the Guardroom to keep up with demand for on-campus escorts, and additionally any cadet can sign up to post at locations around campus in uniform to provide extra security and presence right now.

Kudos to UPD and the Aggies for taking care of their own.

Hope they catch the scumbag soon.

BTW, if any of you have a daughter or son here in Aggieland and need anything, let me know. Myself, my wife or my daughter (just graduated from A&M) would be happy to help out, even if it's just a precautionary step.

I don't believe there have been any additional attacks. Not really much to report on with an open investigation.
