March crime rises 66 percent CRIME | Violent crime rose 75 percent last month as compared to March of last year BY JENNY CHUNG Staff Writer Crime rates this March rose by approximately 66 percent as compared to last March’s statistics, according to data provided by the Division of Public Safety. Year-to-date data indicates that crime rates have undergone an overall increase of 34 percent compared to the same period last year. As a category, “crimes against persons,” or violent crime, exhibited a 75-percent increase, rising from eight incidents reported last March to 14 reported last month. Three cases of robbery were reported last month, as compared to two reports of robbery filed last March. The number of assaults reported more than doubled, as six more simple assault incidents — which involve less severe injury than aggravated assaults — were reported last month than in March 2009. According to Vice President for Public Safety Maureen Rush, four of the eight assaults
Rodriguez spoke about fashion’s future FASHION WEEK from page 1 on craftsmanship. His clients include Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Obama. Rodriguez spoke of his beginnings in design and his design process. He said that growing up, “I wanted to be an architect … I was always making houses out of shoe boxes … I was always eager to build something.” His desire led him to fashion. “I think

reported involved police officers on duty and two were attacks on medical personnel at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. The other two incidents occurred between individuals who knew one another. Of all crimes against property, burglary saw the most significant percentage increase, rising from one case reported in March 2009 to six reported last month. Theft from automobiles saw a similar increase, exhibiting a rise of 70 percent. Rush emphasized the correlation between the rise in crime rates and heightened opportunity for criminal activity during the spring semester. “We tend to have problems at this time of year because students are preoccupied with exams, spring break and Spring Fling,” she said. She urged students to make an active effort toward “targethardening” the campus by remaining aware of their possessions at all times and not
leaving items unattended. Rush f ur ther cautioned against the practice of “piggybacking” — permitting an individual without a PennCard to enter a building after one has swiped in — which is thought to have caused several burglaries on campus. If students encounter someone attempting to piggyback, Rush said, they are under no obligation to confront the individual. “We invite 511 calls from students informing us that someone just came into a building behind them with no PennCard [and] they’re on the first floor,” Rush said. “When we get those calls, a police officer will go immediately to that location to check it out.” In addition, Penn Police has deployed “extensive tactical teams” to monitor problem
architecture may have been too tough for me,” he joked. Concerning his inspiration, Rodriguez said, “I like some influence but in a very abstract way.” Sometimes “the best design time comes on the way to work … when you’re seeing the world around you,” he said. Rodriguez also revealed that he brings a sketch book with him while running, something Hoke said he does too. Rodriguez also spoke about design today and its future. He said though there is advancement in fabric and technology, there is greater need for the craft. He added that fashion today is going very fast, to the point where it’s become inexpensive “in the
sense that it’s not thought out properly — it’s disposable, it’s not well designed.” Rodriguez explained that he’s “interested in things that make a lasting impression and last forever. That kind of craft is so beautiful … I think all things should be made beautifully.” He said, “I want her to love [my clothes] five years from now and 10 years from now.” Students were excited to hear Rodriguez’ point of view. “I loved it, because his design relates to architecture,” said third-year Design student Andrea Gulyas. Chi Dang, also a third-year Design student, added, “Penn Design emphasizes learning the process of discipline. Bringing

areas in collaboration with the Philadelphia Police Department, according to Penn Police Chief Mark Dorsey. Thus far, DPS is in the process of pursuing and arresting about 45 individuals who routinely commit unattended property thefts in University City and travel to the suburbs to make purchases with stolen credit cards, Dorsey said. He added that DPS is “aggressively pursuing” an individual suspected of instigating a number of burglaries on campus, and that another key arrest was recently made near 34th and Chestnut streets as a result of the increased police presence. Security and surveillance near 42nd and Pine streets and Baltimore Avenue have also been enhanced to address the rise in theft from automobiles reported in the area.

To have the opportunity to hear what he thinks was great.”
