CAMPUS ALERT: Former Food Service Worker Makes Threats Against Former Co-Workers

The Campus Alert System was activated today to report  that a former food services worker has made threats against former co-workers.

The threat was allegedly made by Ronald Scott Science, who according to sources made pizza at Gilman Dining Hall.

A quick search of the suspect shows 33 items, which lists mostly traffic violations, but does include an assault charge.  This was confirmed by a 2004 notice from the Washington County Sheriff.  Also, he was charged with domestic violence in 2007.

Here is the full release from the College’s Timely Notification report.  You can also listen to the notification, which mentions Science’s name, at this link.

Marietta College Police were notified late this afternoon that a former food service employee has allegedly issued threats against his former co-workers and could be contemplating a return to campus with the intent to do them harm.

The College Police are working with the Marietta City Police to locate the suspect, Ronald Scott Science.

All Marietta College students, faculty and staff are asked to be alert to this threat and report any suspicious or erratic behaviors to campus police immediately.

Please do not attempt to intervene should you witness a dispute between food service employees and, once again, notify campus police immediately.

Please stay tuned to Writing on the Mall for the latest news regarding this case.

Aggravated Burglary Triggers Campus Notification

If there is one thing that the College does well, its timely notification.  The e-mail/robo-calls went out at 10 AM, 4 hours after the incident happened.

In compliance with the Timely Notice provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Marietta College officials want to inform you that Marietta College police are investigating an aggravated burglary that took place at approximately 6 a.m., Friday, May 8.

An unknown person entered a resident’s room at Parsons Hall. After the suspect gained entry he attempted to restrain the resident. The resident fought back and was able to separate from the attacker, who fled on foot. Campus Police say nothing at this time indicates the attacker had any connection to the Marietta College Campus.

The male, described as tall, 6-foot-0 to 6-foot-2, slender build was wearing a dark or black hoodie type sweatshirt and dark jeans. The suspect was wearing dark eyeliner and had multiple piercings on his face.

The scene has been processed by an evidence technician from the Marietta City Police Department. The case is being investigated by the Marietta College Police and the Marietta City Police.

If anyone has any details please contact Marietta College Police at (740) 376-4611.

Once again, questions are raised about the security of Parson’s Hall.  The first floor is completely unprotected from outsiders.  Without knowing what floor it was, it would be my guess that it was the first floor.  I doubt somebody would let some guy follow them through the door to gain access to the second/third/fourth floors.

And a note…Comparatively, our crime rate is much much lower than most colleges/universities.  It’s just that these incidents raise questions of the security of students.
