Timely Warning - May 29, 2018

In compliance with the “Timely Notice” provisions of the Federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, the Auraria Higher Education Center located in downtown Denver is issuing the following notice of a crime that occurred on or adjacent to the Auraria Campus.

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT IN LOT SPRUCE                              

REPORTED OFFENSE: Auraria Campus Police are investigating a reported assault that occurred at approximately 7:00 am on Monday, May 28, 2018. The victim was engaged in a verbal altercation with the suspect in the Spruce parking lot at 8th/Walnut. The suspect took his bicycle and shoved it against the victim, causing them to fall and strike their head on the asphalt.
