December 3, 2022

At approximately 11:00am today, campus security received a call from a student reporting they had been sexually assaulted on December 1st. The survivor and offender are known to one another. The survivor reports that on December 1st at approximately 9pm someone they had been dating came to their residence hall room to visit.  During their time in the residence hall, the offender engaged in intimate touching and sexual activity and was told to stop.  The offender did not stop when directed to do so. The encounter was non-consensual. Any further details have been withheld to maintain survivor privacy and would not enhance the information needed for campus safety. Sexual assault of any kind is always the full responsibility of the offender. 

Anyone with information about this incident or any crime should contact Campus Security at 425.754.0154 or via email to security24.7@edmonds.edu

Campus Security has provided the survivor with a variety of support resources to assist them in feeling safer on campus and as they go about their daily activities.

Safety Information and Protective Steps

  • Consent is a vital part of any intimate encounter with another. There are many times that consent cannot exist - for example if a person is under the age of 18 or is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 
  • It is estimated that in the United States one out of six women and one in thirty-three men have been the victim of rape or attempted rape. No matter the demographic, the most common type of sexual assault is not committed by a stranger, but by someone known to the survivor.
  • Students are encouraged to take precautions to enhance their safety, and to understand how to seek, and assure affirmative consent during potentially intimate interactions with others, as well as how to respect when consent has been denied or revoked. More information on consent can be found through the following organizations:
  • If you feel uneasy about a situation, trust your instincts and attempt to interrupt the chain of events. Create a distraction and involve others. If you are out with friends, make a commitment to ensure everyone has a safe way home. 
  • Survivors are encouraged to seek medical attention immediately, even if there are no obvious physical injuries. Receiving a sexual assault examination is free and conducted by a specially trained nurse at your local hospital. An examination does not obligate someone to any kind of investigation; however, it allows evidence to be collected and preserved in the event you choose to authorize a criminal investigation at a later time. More information on this process and other services for survivors of sexual assault can be found at https://www.providence.org/locations/wa/intervention-center-for-assault-and-abuse-everett
  • In addition to seeking medical attention, there are other options for self-care after an assault, including contacting a confidential survivor advocate. More information about this and other options may be obtained here.

Under the Clery Act, sexual assault is defined as any sexual act directed against another person, without the consent of the victim, including instances where the victim is incapable of giving consent. 

Under Clery, there are four categories of sexual assault: 

  • Rape - the penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus, with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim. This offense includes the rape of both males and females. 
  • Fondling - the touching of the private body parts of another person for the purpose of sexual gratification, without the consent of the victim, including instances where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of their age or because of their temporary or permanent mental incapacity. 
  • Incest- sexual intercourse between persons who are related to each other within the degrees wherein marriage is prohibited by law. 
  • Statutory Rape - sexual intercourse with a person who is under the statutory age of consent.

During the drill please practice safety during an earthquake. We want you to Drop, Cover, and Hold On

As the message plays you should:

  • Drop to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
  • Take cover by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
  • Hold on to it until the sound of shaking stops.

If there isn't a table or desk near you, drop to the ground in an inside corner of the building and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms. Do not try to run to another room just to get under a table.

The reporting person shared that the individual in question has repeatedly attempted to contact them via phone, text and in person. Including one in person attempt on campus several months ago, and another attempt yesterday afternoon as they were exiting class.

The person of concern is not a student. He is described as an Asian male, approximately 5’ 10” - 6 feet tall, with short dark hair who always wears a hat and has been seen driving a white SUV/Jeep style vehicle. The reporting person has been given information and support resources for both on and off campus, including personal safety planning and instructions on how to contact SSEP for Security Officer response and support on campus.

You are receiving this notification because the Jeanne Clery Act, a federal consumer protection law , requires colleges to disclose criminal acts that happen on, adjacent to, or within campus bounds. All US colleges that receive Federal Funding in the United States are required to follow the guidelines and mandates of the Clery Act.

Clery defines stalking as:

Engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to:

  • Fear for the person’s safety or the safety of others; or
  • Suffer substantial emotional distress.

For the purposes of this definition:

  • Course of conduct means two or more acts, including, but not limited to, acts in which the stalker directly, indirectly, or through third parties, by any action, method, device, or means, follows, monitors, observes, surveils, threatens, or communicates to or about a person, or interferes with a person’s property.
  • Reasonable person means a reasonable person under similar circumstances and with similar identities to the victim.
  • Substantial emotional distress means significant mental suffering or anguish that may, but does not necessarily require medical or other professional treatment or counseling.

If you are a victim of stalking please consider taking the following steps for your safety:

What Can I Do If I'm Being Stalked?

  1. Tell someone. ...
  2. Block the aggressor from calling or text messaging you.
  3. Make your social media profiles private.
  4. Report them to campus security
  5. For a Security escort or Security Officer response on campus call 425-754-0154 any time day or night
  6. Keep them from seeing where you are in real time.
  7. Change your passwords.
  8. Contact local law enforcement.
  9. Call 911.
  10. Seek a Protection Order - a legal order to keep the person from contacting you

Campus Safety Bulletin: Report of catalytic converter thefts

You are receiving this bulletin because you are part of the Edmonds College community. Being more aware helps keep our campus community safer.

On the afternoon of March 21, 2022 at approximately 3:10 p.m. Campus Security received a report of a theft of a catalytic converter from a vehicle parked in Lot A. Review of cameras across campus revealed the same suspect vehicle then drove around to lot P near the Center for Families where a second theft occurred. Lynnwood Police Department was notified of each incident separately due to the time between the thefts and discovery of the second incident. They are investigating the reported thefts.

In the videos from campus security cameras, an orange colored, Ford F250 crew cab pickup truck entered Edmonds College at approximately 1:17 p.m. through 200th St. The vehicle then proceeded to parking lot A by Hazel Miller Hall, and parked next to a black Honda Element. The orange truck was there until 1:30 p.m. when it was seen leaving through 200th St.

The orange Ford F250 crew cab pickup truck has no front or back license plate. In place of the license plate there are two yellow signs with the words “GR8 DEAL.” Distinctive markings include a dark colored bed cover, a dual metal bar rack, and yellow/orange lights on top front of cab, as well as a small light bar towards the rear of the roof.

03-22-22 suspect 1

03-22-22 susopect 2

Suspects are seen on video. Suspect number 1 described as the driver, appears to be male, light skinned, seen without cap to have dark shorter hair, later wearing a black baseball cap with Nike logo, bright yellow construction style waterproof jacket and pants.

03-22-22 susopect 3

Suspect number 2 appears to be female, light skinned, camera shows light blonde hair, medium build, wearing a dark jacket, white shirt, jeans and white tennis shoes.

03-22-22 susopect 4

At approximately 1:21 p.m. the individuals parked in parking lot A next to the victim vehicle. The driver exits the vehicle and walks west towards Mill Creek Hall and then returns approximately 4 minutes later.

At approximately 1:24 p.m. the driver returns to the vehicle and a female exits the passenger side.

At approximately 1:25 p.m. the both individuals are seen trying to get under the victim's vehicle.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. both suspects return to their vehicle and proceed to leave campus via 200th St.

At approximately 1:33 p.m. the same orange Ford F250 pickup truck is seen entering campus along the south road passing Snohomish Hall. They park in lot P next to a gray Toyota Prius.

At approximately 1:35 p.m. both suspects are seen exiting the pickup and stand on the passenger side between the truck and the Prius.

At approximately 1:38 p.m. the Prius is seen to be lifting up, possibly by a car jack.

At approximately 1:40 p.m. the Prius is seen being lowered, the suspects enter their vehicle and leave campus via 204th St.

The first victim returned to their vehicle at approximately 3:10 p.m. and discovered that the theft had occurred. They then contacted Campus Security. The second victim was notified of the theft by Campus Security.

Anyone with further information is encouraged to contact the Lynnwood Police Department at 425.407.3999. Lynnwood Police Department Case Number to reference is #22-8340 (Honda) and #22-8346 (Prius).

Whenever a situation is of concern to our campus community, we will notify you. EC urges anyone who is a victim of any crime to call 911 immediately AND make a report to Campus Security.

From the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department - Thefts of catalytic converters are on the rise. Trucks and SUVs with decent ground clearance are the usual targets, but Toyota Prius’ are also frequently targeted. The Prius is prized because the catalytic converters on hybrid cars typically are in better condition because the car only uses it while in gas mode. Their less-used condition makes converters off hybrids more valuable to bring to scrap metal buyers.

For more information on how to prevent catalytic converter theft, please follow this link: https://www.snohomishcountywa.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/6644

We ask our students and employees to be aware and take the following actions to increase their safety both on and off campus:

  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Report any suspicious people or behavior to campus security.
  • When going through a public parking lot, call 911 if you see suspicious activity such as people working underneath a vehicle or someone who looks like they are acting like a lookout. Using a saw is not normal car maintenance behavior. Always park in a well-lit area when available.

Edmonds College Annual Security and Fire Report now available

TRITON ALERT - Edmonds College - Non Emergency
Clery Required Annual Security and Fire Report available for your review. Read the report here.


What if It Snows?

In inclement weather, Edmonds College typically makes decisions regarding emergency closures or class cancellations by 5 a.m. for day classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes (or as early as circumstances allow). Then we start getting the word out.

The college seeks to stay open to fulfill its mission whenever possible — so, most likely, it will be classes as usual for the college — but individuals should protect their own health and safety. Take care of yourself and be safe!

Students, work with your instructors if you need to make other arrangements in an emergency.


Important notice to students, employees, and the community:

Due to ongoing fire and safety concerns of the National Fire Protection Association, Edmonds College prohibits the use, possession, or storage of "hoverboard" style transport devices on campus property. This includes but is not limited to student housing, classrooms, meeting space, walkways, hallways, and open courtyards.
