WEST CH­ESTER >> A num­ber of fe­male stu­dents at West Ch­ester told po­lice that a per­son they know acted sus­pi­ciously dur­ing an early-morn­ing trip home from a party in the bor­ough.

Ac­cord­ing to a mes­sage posted on the univer­sity’s web­site, the school had re­ceived a re­port early Sun­day, sev­eral fe­male WCU stu­dents called a per­son they were fa­mil­iar with to trans­port them from a house in the 500 block of South Mat­lack Street to cam­pus.

They stopped at a lo­cal Wawa on the way back, but af­ter leav­ing the Wawa the driver did not re­turn to the cam­pus, and in­stead drove the women around to ar­eas they were not fa­mil­iar with and then dropped them off at a lo­ca­tion in west­ern Ch­ester County.

Dur­ing this in­ci­dent it was re­ported that the driver touched one of the women on her leg un­in­vited.

Af­ter they had been left aban­doned by the driver, the women then con­tacted 911 and were later lo­cated by state po­lice and re­turned them to the school, where they re­side. The iden­tity of the driver is known and the State Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent, but no other in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided on the mes­sage, such as the num­ber of women and the gen­der of the driver.

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent is en­cour­aged to con­tact the state po­lice bar­racks at Em­bre­ville at 610-486-6280, or West Ch­ester Univer­sity Po­lice at 610-436-3311.
