Guam – M.U. Lujan Elementary School is the only school to begin implementing a new gate policy at the end of the school day following a mugging at the school earlier this week according to Department of Education Deputy Superintendent Robert Malay.
Students were sent home with a letter explaining the controlled child pick-up policy yesterday. Under the policy no vehicles are let onto the campus until after the school buses leave the campus.
Malay tells PNC that the policy was already being considered ahead of Tuesday’s incident upon the suggestion of teachers. After a teacher was assaulted and robbed in the school parking lot at 2pm Tuesday school administrators decided to implement the policy faster.
The Guam Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating the suspect in the crime. According to GPD Public Information Officer A.J. Balajadia the man is described as possibly local, 5 feet 4 inches in height with a slim build. He was wearing khaki pants, a white t-shirt, black shoes and had a white bandana around his face. Anyone who has information about the case is being asked to call Guam Crime Stoppers at 477-HELP.
According to a news release from GPD Wednesday the victim was sitting inside her vehcile when a man approached, sprayed a liquid substance at her face, and grabbed her handbag.
