Saint Mary’s employee fired, arrested for voyeurism on campus

first_img“Home feels a little less like home today,” junior Tess Siver said Tuesday after the report of voyeuristic privacy violation on the Saint Mary’s campus.A maintenance employee of the College was terminated from his position Tuesday after a co-worker reported suspicious behavior in a bathroom on the fourth floor of Le Mans Hall Monday afternoon, according to an email from College President Carol Ann Mooney.A report from WNDU identified 73-year-old David Summerfield as the employee.Courtesy of SBPD Director of media relations Gwen O’Brien said the initial report noted that the employee may have observed students in the bathroom. After the report, he was immediately confronted by superiors and admitted to the allegation, she said.Within two hours of the initial report, he was suspended without pay and escorted off campus. Since then, his employment has been terminated, O’Brien said.On Monday evening, College officials notified the St. Joseph County Special Victims Unit, who began an immediate police investigation, O’Brien said. The investigation led to Summerfield’s arrest Tuesday morning for voyeurism.Mooney notified students, parents, faculty and staff of the situation in an email sent Tuesday afternoon. In the email, Mooney apologized for the incident and praised the employee who came forward with the initial report.“The safety, privacy and security of our students are our primary concerns,” Mooney said. “This type of behavior is repugnant, and Saint Mary’s College will not tolerate it.“As soon as this was reported to us, we acted swiftly to remove the person from campus. We have taken measures that prevent anyone else from being able to spy into restrooms. In addition, we are evaluating all space on campus to ensure privacy.”Mooney invited students, faculty and staff to an assembly in O’Laughlin Auditorium on Tuesday afternoon to address concerns. The assembly was not open to the public.O’Brien said students who need services or support in dealing with this incident can access counseling through Women’s Health and Campus Ministry. In addition, the Residence Life staff is on hand to provide assistance, she said.Siver, a resident of the fourth floor of Le Mans Hall, said she felt simultaneously shocked and violated.“It breaks my heart that mine and my neighbors’ memories of our time in Le Mans will be tainted, but as always, the SMC community will pull together and move past this,” she said.Siver said she feels that Saint Mary’s has been as forthcoming and open with students about the incident as possible.“I hope they continue to be open with students throughout the investigation, particularly those students who live in areas of Le Mans that have been most affected,” she said.Junior Kelley Wright, another fourth floor resident, agreed with Siver, extending her personal thanks to Mooney for her open and honest response to the situation during the college-wide forum.“I think the immediate forum that was held today was very important for everyone, not just the residents of 4th floor Le Mans,” Wright said.Wright said she hopes the College responds to the situation in a way that makes students feel safer and restores a sense of privacy.“I am anxiously awaiting what the College is going to do to ensure that this doesn’t happen again,” she said.Tags: Arrest, SMC employee, spyinglast_img read more

Syracuse loses control of transition game in 85-64 loss to Penn State

first_imgBROOKLYN — After a play he wished he’d get back, Buddy Boeheim stretched the ball overhead, pounded it to the ground and tossed it to the referee. A chaotic scene began with a Brycen Goodine turnover after the freshman tried to break the Penn State press with his dribble. But hand-fighting knocked the ball loose, and when the ball rolled to Elijah Hughes in the paint, he spotted three Penn State defenders out of position. So, he sprinted. Hughes passed the ball up the court and into the hands of Buddy who found the shot he wanted. “I got a little excited to shoot it,” Buddy said after the game. He leapt before he gathered, and the ball slipped from his hands and then right back into them. A play to continue the momentum was wasted with a travel.“I don’t know how that happened,” Buddy said.The play was just one of SU’s (4-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) several mishaps in a transition game that for much of the night was lopsided. Penn State (6-1) scored 19 points in transition and took advantage of SU’s poor positioning off misses to outnumber the Orange running down the floor. When spots opened up for Syracuse to speed up the pace on its own, sloppy play stopped runs before they occurred and hampered the Orange toward a second-straight double-digit loss. This time, it was an 85-64 defeat to the Nittany Lions in the NIT Season Tip-Off at the Barclays Center.Early in the season, Syracuse thrived when it could control the pace and set up its offense to run plays in the half-court. Buddy converted frequently off screens, but when he caught the ball in stride after sprinting from the backcourt, his misses fired long. At the time, Buddy prescribed transition play as one of SU’s earliest issues. It was minimized by Syracuse’s ability to set the pace of early nonconference games, but something that would weigh far more when it couldn’t.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Nittany Lions tempted the Orange into quick cuts and runs from the opposite end of the court. They employed a full court press — like Oklahoma State two days prior — so SU tried to break it with quick passes up the court, which sometimes led to open shots. Though the press didn’t lead to any quick turnovers, it caused an imbalance for shooters already trying to claw their way back from a quick 15-point deficit.Early in the first half, Syracuse swiftly passed the ball up the floor and Hughes sprinted out in front of PSU defenders. Needing a big play, Hughes floated to the corner and quickly fired while his momentum faded him toward the baseline. When the shot rimmed out, Syracuse’s quick movement ahead had left multiple Penn State players lagging behind, now open in SU’s backcourt. “If you can’t convert in transition,” Hughes said, “you got to sprint back.”The shooting struggles for Syracuse continued, and the Nittany Lions utilized a 29-rebound advantage to continually push forward. The Orange struggled to keep up with Penn State’s speed down the floor, and when it did get back, SU often fouled. Transition play briefly erupted the Orange, who tied the game on quick plays up the floor out of halftime. Marek Dolezaj began to push the ball up the floor off rebounds, and Syracuse made quick cuts to the rim that ended in quick buckets or quick fouls. To complete a seven-point comeback after halftime, Joe Girard III found Hughes for a breakaway dunk. “I mean, it felt (within) six points for like 10 minutes there,” Buddy said.But the good fortune didn’t last, and Syracuse got lost within its own speed. With the game still in reach, Girard dove to the floor and knocked away a bounce pass. He popped up, caught an outlet and burst up the floor. Quincy Guerrier arced out to the wing. He pointed his finger in the air. “Up,” Guerrier yelled.Girard waited, but as Guerrier cut in, he tossed a line drive behind Guerrier and out of bounds. Girard clapped his hands together. Guerrier turned toward the freshman point guard and pointed his finger in the air once more, but Girard looked down. Another chance halted, Girard gingerly strolled to the bench.

Learn these five lessons and Arsenal can still become Premier League champions

first_img 2) The Gunners must sign a quality striker before the transfer window closes – Olivier Giroud is not a bad player by any means, but the time has come where he either needs some support up front or at least some competition in order to improve himself and the team. It is obvious that the Gunners’ frontline is missing quality of the kind Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Robin van Persie once provided, and that gap in the side will have to be filled quickly if the title dream is to become a reality. Karim Benzema, anyone? 5 4) The Gunners need a defender from the top shelf – A top-class centre-back is still needed to provide leadership to what can be a creaky defence, instil confidence and get the Gunners’ back line playing as a solid unit. A quality centre-back is a must to become Premier League champions, and Arsenal need to find their very own John Terry, Vincent Kompany or Nemanja Vidic. It’s time Wenger considered building a new partnership in the back. Arsenal started their Premier League campaign with a shocking loss to West Ham at the Emirates.Arsene Wenger’s side were initially described as serious contenders to win the title but goals from Hammers’ Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate proved this will be no easy feat.The Gunners experienced a serious setback eight days after beating Chelsea at Wembley for the Community Shield and have a lot to learn if they want to step up.So what lessons should Arsenal take following that miserable defeat? Click the arrow above right, to find out what the FA Cup holders should do to fight back. 5) The Premier League is about fight as much as it’s about football – Arsenal were not the only top side to struggle in their Premier League opener. Champions Chelsea dropped points at Stamford Bridge and Manchester United beat Tottenham in unconvincing fashion, while Liverpool were fortunate to scrape past Stoke. The Premier League is fiercely competitive and, based on the latest results, the likes of Swansea, West Ham, Leicester and newbies Watford could cost the big teams some very valuable points in the coming months. Did Arsenal underestimate West Ham? It’s possible, but the wake up call has been served early enough for the Gunners to remember that the Premier League is won not just through skill, but fight. 5 1) Now is the time to support Petr Cech – click the arrow above to find out four more things Arsenal should learn – Arsenal fans thought they could rely on Cech to bring stability, but his debut was marked by rash decision making and the Gunners need their new goalkeeper to get over it, fast. The team and fans should not jump into negative conclusions after just one game and should instead trust as well as support the experienced ‘keeper – after all, everyone can have a bad day. 5 5 3) Arsenal shouldn’t rely on Alexis Sanchez too much – Alexis Sanchez was undoubtedly the Gunners’ best player last season and they are fortunate to boast such a world class player in the ranks, but it seems like Arsenal are relying on him too much, which means the former Barcelona player is carrying a heavy burden. The Chilean didn’t have much free time this summer as he competed at the Copa America, therefore he probably needs more time to regain top form. He was conspicuous by his absence before coming on from the bench against West Ham and the likes of Mesut Ozil need to contribute more when Alexis isn’t available to save the day. 5last_img read more
