* Alert from the Evansville Police Department

The Evansville Police Department has issued an alert warning of indecent exposures and sexual batteries being investigated in areas close to our campus. The Office of Safety and Security would like to remind everyone to always be aware of their surroundings and to use the buddy system when out walking near campus. Officers will be available for escorts during the campus holiday closure 24 hours a day.

Please familiarize yourself with the EPD ALERT provided below. If you see anything suspicious or have any information regarding these incidents, contact the Office of Safety and Security at 812-488-2051 or ext. 2051 on campus.

From the Evansville Police Department
***BE ALERT***

The Evansville Police Department wants to alert area citizens of a recent series of indecent exposures and sexual batteries that are being investigated. These events have been occurring in the morning hours between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. and in the afternoon hours between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The incidents appear to be by two different suspects and they do not appear to be working together or are connected. One suspect is described as a white male in his late teens to early twenties. The other suspect is described as a black male in his early twenties to thirties. Both individuals have been wearing dark hooded sweatshirts and dark jeans or sweat pants.

The white male has been reported to be standing between houses and masturbating as females walk by and the black male has been reported to be approaching females and grabbing their genitals. The victims of the sexual batteries have all been walking alone in the area when the suspect approaches them, touches them inappropriately, and then flees.

The incidents have been primarily occurring on the southeast side of Evansville in in the areas between Highway 41 to Weinbach Avenue, south of Lincoln Ave.

Although the EPD has been providing aggressive extra patrols in the area, we are asking the public to be extra vigilant of their surroundings and practice good personal safety. Please call 911 to report any suspicious behavior.

West Side Night presented by Commerce Bank makes its return to the Ford Center on Wednesday, January 2 when the University of Evansville men’s basketball team plays host to Drake in a 6:00 p.m. contest that marks the Missouri Valley Conference opener.

“Commerce Bank is proud to sponsor West Side night with the Aces,” said Brian J. Woods of Commerce Bank. “With our newest branch on Evansville’s west side, we are excited to be a part of what is anticipated to be one of the largest crowds at an Aces game.”

Backed by the West Side Nut Club, UE’s West Side Night gives fans the opportunity to redeem vouchers for $5 tickets to the game. Vouchers are currently available at several businesses on the west side of Evansville including:

- Commerce Bank – 618 N. St. Joseph
- Donut Bank – 210 N. St. Joseph
- Master Tire – 905 W. Columbia
- Master Tire – 4951 W Lloyd Expressway

The voucher will also run in the Evansville Courier and Press over the holidays. The exact date it will be in the newspaper will be determined soon.

Aces head coach Walter McCarty will join in the festivities. In an event entitled “Commerce with Coach”, McCarty will be at the Donut Bank on N. St. Joseph from 8:00-9:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 27. He will have coffee and mingle with fans while handing out vouchers.

Vouchers can be redeemed immediately at the Carson Center Ticket Office on the UE campus or at the Ford Center.

One of the staples of the west side of Evansville is the West Side Nut Club. Several members of the club will be in attendance at the game and President Mark Head is excited to be involved with the Aces.

“The West Side Nut Club is thrilled to partner with the University of Evansville men’s basketball team for the January 2nd game,” Head exclaimed. “Members of the Nut Club are graduates, faculty, and former athletes of UE so when we were approached about the partnership, it was a perfect combination.”
