Dear Fine Arts Students,
I am certain most of you are aware of the assault of graffiti this past week in Rutledge. I am pleased to inform you that the alleged perpetrator was apprehended, handcuffed and charged by Campus Police on Thursday afternoon. The alleged perpetrator was not associated with Winthrop.
I want to thank the students who were alert to strangers in Rutledge and the students who alerted Campus Police when the alleged perpetrator came back on campus Thursday afternoon.
You all have worked too hard in your studios and in our academic studies within the Department of Fine Arts to have anyone compromise your work spaces.
Please stay alert to anyone or any activity that appears suspicious to you and please contact Campus Police at 803-323-3333. They are always there for you.
