• Rollins College alerts students of four suspicious incidents at parking garage

    One of the women described the incident to Eyewitness News.

    "He said that he had been following me for a long time now," said student Reagan Campbell. "He was very close. Close enough I could feel his breath on me because he's on my shoulder."

    Rollins College has since made security changes, including adding more schools escorts, reviewing safety policies and holding a campus safety meeting. Over the past few years, collge officials said they've installed 24 surveillance cameras and brighter LED lights in the parking garage.

    "I was kind of freaked out," said student Kendal Young. "Winter Park is not exactly a high crime area."
