On Nov 26, 2015, an arrest was made in the student centre by campus police. The arrest made at 7:30 p.m. in the men’s washroom on the second floor of the Student Centre concerned an ongoing police investigation with the Toronto Police. The individual is not a student at UTSC. Earlier that day at 4 p.m. an individual was questioned outside the student centre, but no formal arrest was made. According to Gary Pitcher, Director of Campus Safety and Security, the arrest and investigation were concluded to be non-threatening to campus safety but did concern the safety of the arrested individual. No community alerts were sent out as the investigation did not pose immediate threat to campus safety. Pitcher added that any other information regarding the incident is sensitive to the Toronto Police investigation and cannot immediately be revealed.
ARREST AT THE STUDENT CENTRE

Zarin is third year student completing a double major in social anthropology and human biology. If there were one word she would use to describe herself, it would be “introspective”. She believes that experiences shape the person that we become, so regular self-reflection, whether it’s on a bus ride or through writing in her journal, is a must. When she isn’t caught marathoning Law and Order: SVU or frantically taking notes for her classes, she can be seen reading books or covered in acrylic paint from an impromptu art session. She’s looking forward to gaining knowledge as an editor and spending quality time with the awesome team at The Underground.
