Sexual battery, a missing cell phone, pornography and an abandoned minor kept campus police busy the last two weeks of January.

A sexual battery involving two students was reported at about 11:17 a.m. on Jan. 28 near exit 3 in the Main Building. A 22-year-old woman claimed a man, 21, stopped her and began to “hit on her.” He then requested her number so they could study together.

The victim said she did not want to be rude so she stopped to talk to him even though she felt uncomfortable. According to the police report, the victim told the man she needed to go home multiple times, but he kept talking.

The suspect touched the victim’s face and then hugged the woman. He then attempted to kiss her on the mouth.

Officer Daniel Piazza questioned the man who denied the allegations.

After being told the incident was captured on camera, the man admitted the allegations were true. He was told by officers his behavior was inappropriate.

At approximately 6:32 p.m. Jan. 22, a student reported her cell phone missing. She told campus police she thought she had left the Galaxy S4 on the bookstore counter. Officer David Madden called the victim’s phone but it was turned off. The student said the phone had been fully charged.

Police used video surveillance footage to determine student Cynthia Herrera had been mistakenly given the phone by bookstore employees who thought she had left it behind.

When questioned, Herrera claimed she thought the phone was hers and did not realize she had two phones until she arrived home.

Herrera told police she had called OCCC to report having the phone but there was no record of the call according to the report.

Herrera returned the phone to campus police Jan. 24. At that time, it was found she had active warrants with Oklahoma City and Moore. She was held until Oklahoma City marshals arrived.

Two days later, a 32-year-old male visiting campus was reported to be viewing pornography on a library computer according to a campus police report.

Officer Tim Harris said the suspect was issued a “Notice to leave Oklahoma City Community College,” which prohibits him from coming onto OCCC property for six months. The man was then escorted off the campus.

At approximately 6:36 p.m. Jan. 31, a 12-year-old girl became separated from her older sister and sister’s friend in the library.

Officer Jeremy Bohannon searched the library and could not locate the parties the minor had been with.

The minor’s father was called and told that his daughter was alone on campus. The father told the officer that the minor’s sister and sister’s friend had walked home.

The minor was then picked up by her father.

All names were redacted on all reports under the direction of Marketing and Public Relations Director Cordell Jordan who said names are redacted “according to OCCCPD Standard Oper-ating Procedures involving information released and information withheld.”
