Seven non-violent crimes were reported at Sacramento State between March 7 and March 27.

Included in these crimes was a report of a suspicious phone call that took place at Capistrano Hall on March 17. The victim, who was a faculty member, reported that she was receiving strange and incoherent phone calls.   

According to Sac State Police Chief Mark Iwasa, the subject who was making the phone calls is a former Sac State student and has been making these phone calls, as well as writing letters, to campus police and faculty for at least four or five years. Iwasa said the phone calls and letters are incoherent, but not threatening.  

“That phone call was just a series of voice messages that were left on the phone of one of our faculty,” Iwasa said. “Just rambling, incoherent messages, numerous messages after another.”
