In October, police responded to "large groups of juveniles along Broad Street" near campus. Authorities said that minors were starting fights and harassing students.

Police said there were three assaults and one robbery in one night. A group of students were knocked to the ground by a group of about 20 juvenile boys and girls, and 19-year-old Christina Lauletta's cell phone was taken in the assault.

A 15-year-old male and a 17-year-old male were arrested shortly after the incident and charged with aggravated assault, robbery, and related offenses.

Later that night, a 15-year-old male was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a Temple Police officer.
