A female City College student reported a theft to the Security Office that occurred in the Schott Center (located in downtown Santa Barbara). The theft reportedly occurred in one of the Schott Center’s classrooms while the students left their seats unattended to watch a classroom demonstration. An unidentified male who had been passing by the classroom’s entrance was seen taking $60 out of a female student’s wallet from her belongings on the table closest to the door. Another witness saw the male individual take her purse and informed the female student about it. The purse was found a few feet away from the entrance of the classroom. The male suspect was reportedly 5 feet and 3 inches, stocky, wore a yellow shirt and had a dark orange backpack.

Campus Security received a report that a male City College student was in a major skateboarding accident. The student reportedly skated down Loma Alta and entered lower Parking Lot-C at approximately 30 miles per hour. He sped in between four parked vehicles before directly crashing into one, leaving a large dent into the passenger door on the driver’s side. Although he remained conscious after the impact, witnesses reported they saw him endure a full body seizure. Due to the student’s significant head and face injuries, he was transported to Cottage Hospital in midtown Santa Barbara.
