UPDATE:  INVESTIGATION OF TRINITY COLLEGE STUDENT ASSAULT CONTINUES;  INCREASED POLICE PRESENCE IN AND AROUND CAMPUS

(Hartford) – Mayor Pedro E. Segarra and Police Chief James Rovella today outlined action steps that have been taken in response to the March 4, 2012 attack on a Trinity student, including increased police resources in the area.

Hartford Police Chief James C. Rovella said, “Area residents, students, parents, faculty and school administrators will see a greater police presence in the area of the school including pro-active patrols, including uniform patrol officers, detectives and plainclothes officers.   Major Crimes detectives have interviewed the victim and witnesses and are currently following-up on leads.  Furthermore, we are working very closely with Trinity College President James Jones and Trinity College Campus Safety to coordinate efforts to increase public safety both on campus and throughout the area neighborhood.  Two area District Commanders are also assigning extra details in the vicinity.”

Mayor Pedro E. Segarra, “As someone who has experienced violence firsthand, I take any attack on any individual in our City to heart. My thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his family, and we wish him a full recovery.  The identification and arrest of the individuals responsible for this violent act is of highest priority to both the City of Hartford and Trinity College.”

The location of the incident – an area with several campus and residential housing units – increases the likelihood that someone witnessed the assault. Confidential, anonymous tips may be made both on-line and by phone at Hartford Crime Stoppers, 860-722-TIPS (8477).
