    College offers on-campus housing to students after attack
    BY TAMMY STABLES BATTAGLIA • FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER • January 23, 2009

    The College for Creative Studies is offering to move students into campus housing in the wake of two former students being sexually assaulted early today and forced at gunpoint to withdraw money from an ATM.

    The attack on the two men happened in a building in the Peck Park area at East Kirby and Beaubien, according to an e-mail sent to CCS students by college president Richard Rogers.


    “This is a very disturbing incident,” Rogers wrote. “Our first concern, of course, is for the well-being of the victims. The safety of our students, faculty, staff, guests, and the members of our community is of paramount importance. Even with our security procedures and mobile safety patrols, random acts of violence may still occur.”


    The 24-year-old victim told investigators he and another 21-year-old CCS student were approached between 12:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. today. As they arrived at his apartment in the 400 block of East Kirby, two assailants approached them brandishing a gun, Detroit Police spokeswoman Yvette Walker said. The gunmen also forced the students to drive to an ATM on Mack Avenue during the incident, according to police.


    CCS spokesman Marcus Popiolek said 1,272 students are enrolled for Winter semester at the private, four-year art college, which is world-renowned for its automotive design program.


    The college will help relocate students who want to move to the Art Centre building or other on-campus housing, he said.


    The college also offers 24-hour security escorts for students who call the school’s security office at 313-664-7444, he said.


    Anyone with information about the assailants is asked to call the Detroit Police sex crimes unit at 313-596-1950.

    Oh, yeah, good; they'll be safe there, where everyone is prohibited by law from carrying weapons. Thank God that we can all rely on the law to protect us.

    As usual the school doesn't get it. Just like the government they think they have to protect you and they know what is best for you. Can't have a person taking responsibility for their own protection.

    Ahh yes, on campus... where you have all your American freedoms!

    Well, except the Second. That doesn't apply. You don't need it anyway, don't you know college kids are the safest group out there when it comes to being crime victims!

    This is such a joke to think that these people will be safer on campus. I feel a heck of a lot safer living off campus than I ever did on campus. A couple of years back some guy got stabed right outside my dorm room window. At least now I can exercise my rights to defend myself.
    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    Approached between 0030 and 0300? That is a little vague. How can you be out and not know what the hell time it is? More here than is being told.
