Following a Nov. 24 burglary at 680 Lomita, Stanford University Department of Public Safety (SUDPS) spokesperson Bill Larson told The Daily that SUDPS has “increased patrols around the dorms.”
Police were called to Row self-op 680 Lomita in response to a burglary on Saturday evening.
The 528-foot-long “scary path” is a dark dirt path that extends from the paved road between the Kappa Alpha Fraternity and the Enchanted Broccoli Forest to the back of 680 Lomita. The shortcut has become notorious among students as a place where the threat of sexual assault looms more strongly than ever. Although no reports of incidents of sexual assault on the path itself are currently available, former Stanford athlete Brock Turner was found sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in the woods surrounding the path last January.
With the 2012 Undergraduate Housing Draw May 6 application deadline approaching, The Daily took a closer look at the options Stanford offers to upperclassmen seeking on-campus housing.
