Notification of concerning incident

Jan. 21, 2018

This past weekend, a Mount Royal faculty member was the victim of a home break and enter and assault. The individual who was arrested and is accused of the break and enter and assault is a current Mount Royal student. There is no indication that this was targeted, nor any indication that the two individuals had ever met. The shared connection with Mount Royal appears to be a coincidence.

Our first and foremost concern is for the well-being of the victim, who was injured and is now recuperating. The University has been in touch with the individual to offer support and best wishes for recovery.

The student was suspended and will not be permitted on campus or at MRU events during the course of the suspension.

Although we understand the potential for questions, out of respect for privacy and because the matter is before the court, the University is not able to comment further at this time.
