In-Security at Santa Fe?
There will soon be more uniforms on the Santa Fe College campus, to make sure there will be fewer criminal incidents.
On Friday, school officials told TV20, they're beefing up their campus police presence.
It's comes after two unsettling crimes in their parking lots
Greg Mccray of north west Gainesville says he's not happy the man who attacked a Santa Fe College student last Friday, may still be among us.
"There's a lot of little young girls, that stay out here, and play out here, so, we really concerned," he said.
On Monday, the student told her story to TV20.
She asked her identity not be revealed as she spoke of what happened in parking lot 19.
"I looked up, right as i was about to close my door, and i saw a guy, about two car lengths back, with his pants around his thighs," she said.
He grabbed her wrist but the woman managed to get away.
So did her attacker.
Santa Fe College is beefing up it's current police force of 16 full-time officers.
"We've had two incidents which have been troubling to us, which have shaken our sense of security and confidence," said Marilyn Tubb, SFC Spokesperson.
Just how many officers is not being released, or how the college will pay for them.
"I don't know where the money is coming from, we're doing what we need to do to increase security, and safety on our campus," she said.
According to police reports, her attacker was last seen heading in the direction of the Santa Fe Oaks Apartments.
McCray says there needs to be better communication between law enforcement and neighbors.
"I didn't know about the second one at all... why are they not telling people, so people can be more alert, and even kind of help them look. If we don't know, we don't know what to look for," he said.
The attacker in the latest incident is described as an hispanic male in his mid 20's, with a neck tattoo, and both ears pierced.
