Campus Safety Notifies Student Body of Aggravated Assault Early Saturday

By Katie Oglesby, Editor-in-Chief

Executive Director of Campus Safety Alex Wiltz send out a campus-wide email Saturday afternoon alerting the community of an aggravated assault that impacted a member of the campus community on the 300 block of Carlisle Street early Saturday morning.

Both Gettysburg Police and Campus Safety responded to the situation. Campus Safety and the police have identified several individuals involved, but the investigation is still ongoing.

Wiltz reminded the campus community to call 911, as bystanders did in this situation if a person feels like they are in danger.

Gettysburg Police are investigating the incident, Wiltz said, so anyone seeking more information about the situation should reach out to them.

Wiltz cited the federal government’s definition of aggravated assault, which is “an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. This type of assault usually is accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to produce death or great bodily harm.”
