Possible stalking investigated

Campus police are investigating a possible stalking incident after taking a report on Wednesday, April 29, from a 19-year-old female student that a man who identified himself to her only as Carlos may want to bring harm to her.

The student, whose name was redacted from the report, said the man went to her apartment at around 11 a.m. Monday, April 27, saying he’d seen her on campus. Reportedly, he said he “wanted to talk to her, but because he was unable to catch her in the parking lot,” followed her to her apartment.

The report shows the initial conversation was “consensual.”

The two exchanged phone numbers and texted throughout the day.

Around 8:30 p.m. the man returned to the woman’s apartment uninvited. They conversed and continued texting, and, at some point, that conversation turned sexual.

On Tuesday, April 28, the student reportedly told Carlos via text message that she did not wish to be intimate with him and told him to “stop trying to become intimate.” The texts from him continued.

The woman reported seeing the man’s car near her apartment at around 9:30 p.m. that night. He then texted her, asking to speak with her.

The texting from him continued into Wednesday morning, April 29, when the woman contacted police. No arrests have been made but this case is still active.

Additional information is available in a supplemental report that was requested but not provided.

Another OCCC student may face drug paraphernalia charges after asking campus police to unlock his car on Tuesday, April 28.

Officer David Madden reported finding a glass pipe, a lighter and a clear plastic bag in the cupholder of a 2003 Honda Element after being dispatched to assist the owner who had locked his keys inside.

The student, whose name was redacted from the report, told Madden he used the pipe only for tobacco and allowed campus police to search his vehicle.

Two partial e-cigarettes were found in the car, both containing “a green leafy substance” and “a brown sticky substance,” according to the report.

A broken glass pipe with “burnt residue” also was found in the car’s glove compartment as was a plastic bag containing a green, leafy substance and smelling of marijuana.

These items and a bottle of e-cigarette liquid were seized and sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for analysis. The student was released pending the results.

Pathways instructor Cady Murphy reported a missing wallet on Wednesday, April 15.

In a report, Murphy said she had left the classroom open and unattended for about 15 minutes that day.

When she returned, she noticed some items on the floor that hadn’t been there when she left. She did not notice her wallet missing until later when she stopped to make a purchase.

Video surveillance was reviewed but no suspect could be seen. Additional information is available in a supplemental report that was requested but not provided.

Information was redacted from the reports under the direction of Marketing and Public Relations Director Cordell Jordan who said names are redacted “according to OCCCPD Standard Operating Procedures involving information released and information withheld.” To obtain a copy, email cjordan@occc.edu.
