Plymouth State on alert after numerous attempted abductions


PLYMOUTH - Students at Plymouth State University are on high alert after another attempted abduction was reported over this weekend.

The first report came on September 18th on Russell St., a bust road that's right beside campus. Sunday morning at 2:15 a.m. police got another call about a male who tried to force a student into his vehicle on the same street.

"I've never heard of these things happening here," said one student, Morgan Scott, a sophomore. "That's why it's kind of weird. I know that Plymouth is a safe place."

"I've never had this many alerts in the same month," said Vianca Ramirez, a junior at Plymouth State University. "It's kind of scary because we live in a small town. It's a small school and you never really hear of anything in the area like this."

Campus police are working with Plymouth police on this ongoing investigation. They have not confirmed whether the two incidents are related. Police are not releasing any description of the vehicles or the reported suspects. The school has sent text alerts and emails to students reminding them to always walk with at least one other person.

"[The] Campus police [station] is right there," said Mariah Carpenter, a freshman on campus. "They have 'Safe Walks' and everything."

Students said they are getting phone calls from concerned family members and friends off-campus who have heard about the two reports. Some said they would like to see more police patrolling during the weekdays and lights added to areas of campus that are dimmer than others.
