Title

Article "WC battles 'sick' calls"

Description

This article reports on the "literally hundreds of obscene phone calls" that have been made to female residents of University of Richmond, according to University police department investigator, Henry Carr. Campus police Director Robert C. Dillard identified Lora Robins Court residents as the primary victims of the obscene phone calls, due to the residence hall's sequential number ordering. C&P Telephone Co., the campus telephone provider, is described as working with the campus police to help end the problem. Dillard said that the calls included "psychotic threats" and "messages of hate," stating that if the callers were students "they need to be led from class to class on a chain." The article goes on to discuss other police reports, including two female students observing a female custodian wearing clothing "missing from each of the girls' washloads." A spokeswoman for Charlotte Fugett, the director of University Personnel, assured the newspaper that this custodian was placed on an involuntary leave of absence.
