Statement from the University of Toronto

TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2011 /CNW/ - On Friday, November 4, 2011 at approximately 11:40 a.m., University of Toronto Campus Community Police received a call from a University employee which alleged that a woman had been heard calling for help in the St. George Garage and when the employee investigated, saw a woman being forced into a car. Toronto Police were called and attended immediately. They were unable to locate a person in need of assistance at the time or since then and have issued a request for information through the Toronto media.

While we have very little information as to the nature of this incident, patrols in garages and parking lots have been increased. Campus Community Police are available 24/7 and can be reached at 416-978-2222 for urgent matters and 416 978-2323 for general information and non-urgent matters.

Along with general patrols, there are community policing programs utilized to provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff and faculty at all times.  Some of the safety programs in place are alarm monitoring, security patrols, WALKsmart escort and emergency (Code Blue) call boxes.
