uWindsor pub under safety review following stabbings

March 13, 2012

University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman has ordered a safety review following a series of stabbings early last Friday at Thirsty Scholar, a campus pub. The institution and its students' alliance will decide whether to reopen the pub after the review. A 21-year-old Windsor man appeared in court Monday to face charges of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and breaching probation after turning himself in to police Sunday. The accused is not a student at uWindsor and was known to police. Wildeman says the campus safety policy review will be wide-ranging and done in conjunction with campus police, who were first on the scene after bystanders activated an emergency call button. Their response showed the effectiveness of uWindsor's emergency response system, says Wildeman. President's Memo | Windsor Star
