A college attendee who also serves as a resident assistant has recently been linked to several fires that were lit on the campus.

Since the end of November, the McIntire dormitory building, which is home for 120 students on the Wheaton College campus, has experienced six small fires for which the origin was unknown.

Between 3:30 and 4:00 am on Thursday, another fire was reported inside the McIntire halls, but it was caught on the security cameras that the school had recently put in place for student safety.

A man acting as an Uber driver has been accused of kidnapping and raping a woman who flagged him down for a ride early Sunday morning. The assault was said to have taken place on campus at American University where the victim is a student.

Around 3:00am on Sunday a woman and her male companion who had been drinking were rather intoxicated. When leaving the bar they were visiting they saw a car displaying an Uber sticker, and they signaled for a ride rather than using the app in the traditional fashion of ordering the service.

The driver, 36-year-old El Houcine Jourhdaly, allegedly informed the couple that he could only accept cash payment and proceeded to drive them to the university campus. The passengers began arguing in the back seat of the car causing the woman to move to the front seat where she passed out.

A UC San Diego freshman has been implicated as the perpetrator in the disappearance of hundreds of pairs of underwear taken from the Sixth College dormitory laundry rooms. The thefts reportedly took place over a period of weeks before the suspect was caught in the act by a victim, leading to his arrest.

Weeks before David Chou, the alleged culprit, was captured students of UCSD’s Sixth College saw a sign posted in the area of the resident laundry rooms alerting of more than one incident where underwear was stolen. Several students continued to come forward with claims of missing undergarments, and a few weeks following the first warning a duplicate notice was posted encouraging the students to monitor their laundry at all times to deter the thief.

When one woman who requested to remain anonymous reported to her dorm advisor that an entire washing machine load of her laundry had gone missing containing up to 14 pairs of panties, she was assisted in reporting the event to campus police. They informed her that they were unable to facilitate further than suggesting she bring a companion along while doing laundry in order to better ensure her safety. She vented in a post on social media about what had happened to her, and Chou showed much hubris by leaving a humorous retort in the comment section.
