While we are happy to note that a suspect has been apprehended we are disappointed and saddened that members of the student body were not informed about this incident by TUPD – rather, an email containing this article was forwarded to me by a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, who learned about the attack when this article was circulated on her sorority list serv. While this attack may not concern a Tulane student in particular, it occurred in areas where students live off campus. We believe that we should be informed about incidents like this by TUPD.
