Incident on the Charleston Campus

Dear CSN Family,

I wanted to let you know about a disturbing incident that occurred on Friday near our Charleston Campus. No one was harmed on our campus, but the incident  is a reminder to stay diligent and If you see something, say something.

The Facts

About 2 p.m., Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers responded to an attempted robbery at the Lantana Apartments at 6501 West Charleston Boulevard. About two hours later, police were called to Building B on our Charleston Campus to provide an escort. A CSN employee told officers that, earlier, the victim of the crime at the apartment complex had entered campus. When the victim pointed out the suspect fleeing on Torrey Pines Road, the suspect pointed a handgun in their direction. Police were not initially notified of this incident. The suspect did not enter campus and fled the scene.

What CSN is Doing

Because police determined that there was no danger to the campus community by the time the crime was reported, it was determined that there was no need for an emergency alert. A report for aggravated assault was taken.

In keeping with our values of transparency and having an informed CSN community, we will continue to inform you of security related incidents that directly or indirectly may impact CSN students, faculty, and staff.
