Parking Lot Problems at Santa Fe
Another parking lot incident at Santa Fe College brought more law enforcement officers to campus Friday afternoon.
It comes a little over a month after a student was abducted from a different Santa Fe parking lot.
Danielle St. Hilaire, a sophomore at SFC says there's no reason a man should have gotten away with flashing people in a parking lot.
"I feel unprotected because we have a police station right in front of us, and for something like that to happen is very unnecessary," she said.
Around 1:30 PM Friday, a hispanic man committed indecent exposure in parking lot 19, according to the alert sent out to students, faculty, and staff by campus police.
Some are questioning whether cameras in the parking lot would've prevented the mystery flasher from committing the crime.
"You can easily identify, and you know, if there are good enough cameras, get a license plate number or something like that," said Stacey Buckhalter, a bookstore employee.
The camera idea was raised after a student was abducted from a Santa Fe parking lot last month.
Some question the "stepped-up" campus police presence since then.
"I can see them drive around more, but I can see through the window and just see the same people. It's not really more people, I don't really consider that 'heightened security," said Joseph Harmon, an SFC student.
Police declined to comment, referring us to the college's legal council- who didn't return our calls.
Police say the flasher has a skinny build, and was wearing a black t-shirt and jeans cut low at the knee..
He was wearing athletic shoes with a silver design.
He was last seen heading towards the Santa Fe Oaks apartments or crossings apartments.
