On Nov. 2, officers met with an SVSU resident student in the SVSU Police interview room. The student was reporting they were the victim of “sextortion.” The student was intoxicated and stated they may have sent nude photos to a person they did not know. The suspect demanded money, or they would show everyone on the student’s Instagram the nude photos. The victim sent the suspect $500 in gift cards and pre-paid Visa cards before they reported the crime to the police. The student was advised to block and continue blocking the suspect from Instagram and Snapchat.
On Oct. 15, officers spoke with an SVSU resident student regarding an attempted fraud report. The student stated they received a message from a female they had been speaking to online threatening to release private photographs of them unless they sent $200. The student did not send any money but wanted the incident documented in case there were any issues going forward.
On Nov. 7, officers spoke with an SVSU resident student employee who stated they were working at Founders Hall on Saturday. Between weddings, two males started acting suspiciously around Founders Hall. The males would circle Founders Hall, try to open locked doors, take pictures of Founders Hall, and ask the employees questions about the history of Founders Hall. The employee stated the males never communicated with each other and they stayed on opposite ends of the building. The males never did anything criminal but thought the behavior was suspicious.
