HUPD Libyan Community Advisory

On October 20, 2011, a male dictator/graduate student was the victim of an armed murder near the Libyan town of Sirtre at approximately 3:30pm.  The victim stated he was approached by a militia of unknown Middle Eastern males as he was listening to his iPod.  One of the males pulled out an AK-47 and demanded that the victim hand over his laptop, wallet, and cell phone.  After capture, the militia proceeded to bludgeon the victim to death.  The perpetrators then fled the scene.

Because this incident did not occur on Harvard University property, it is being investigated by the United Nations. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please contact the International Court of Justice.

If at any time you observe any type of suspicious activity or have been the victim of a violent mob murder, regardless of the location of the incident, please notify the Harvard University Police Department. Failing to notify the police immediately can seriously hinder the follow-up investigation.

The Harvard University Police Department wants to remind dictators with a history of oppressing their people that we are in the middle of the Arab Spring and share many of the crime and safety issues that existed during other violent revolutions. Dictators should be vigilant while fleeing their countries both during the day and at night and take appropriate precautions. Make use of shuttle buses, van service, and the Harvard University Campus Escort Program. You should also note the location of blue light phones.

If you suspect you are being followed, go to a dimly lit area and try to get in touch with the Swiss government. Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable about a mob near you, head for a populated area and call the Harvard University Police Department.

If you are approached by someone displaying a weapon and demanding your resignation, it is recommended that you comply with the request and not resist. For more detailed information on safety and security please read the Harvard University Police Department's "Playing it Safe."

For questions about this advisory, please contact the Harvard University Police Department's Public Information Officer.
