Arizona Students say safety a concern in UA library – Tuesday, February 24, 2004

An Anonymous Patron writes From The AZ Wildcat.

On Jan. 28, Megan Miller was assaulted by another student while she was studying on the fourth floor of the Main Library.

Miller, a senior majoring in Spanish, said the student, whom she didn’t know, grabbed her by the wrists and told Miller he loved her. He had assaulted another female student a few minutes before he went after Miller. The student was arrested and charged with assault in both cases.

Miller said she never felt unsafe in the library until now, and she thinks more should be done to protect students.

“There’s no control system over who comes in and out of the library,� she said.

In order to address Miller’s and other students’ concerns, UAPD officers and library officials handed out brochures last week to students and faculty with tips on how to be secure in the library.”
