The crimes detailed below are taken directly from the crime log, showcasing the trends premiered during the first month of classes. 


On Tuesday, Feb. 20, a harassment case was reported to UTSAPD. The incident occurred for nearly a year, dating back to April 1, 2023. As of now, the case is active.
