UPDATE: Story of Molestation at AUB

UPDATE: The writer of the story wrote us again to clarify a bit about the story we published a few days ago about a woman whose young daughter was molested at AUB and was met with unhelpful security who blamed her for the incident: “I wanted to point out that after 30 minutes a security guard did come and ask for a description but it was far too late for anything to come of it.”

We’ve received a number of different stories and heard plenty others of incidents of sexual harassment at the American University of Beirut. As a result, we’re interested in getting together a group of volunteers, especially of AUB students or those who have had negative experiences on campus, to work on a campaign to pressure AUB for a better policy to deal with sexual harassment. Please send an email to salwa@adventuresofsalwa.com for more info.

Also, we’d like to get some more information specifically about this story, so if the anonymous author could please email we would very much appreciate it!

    Look, i am the girl who was Caught by a 30 year old man, i am going to give you a detailed but short story. Here it goes : i was at a.u.b with my mother, Usually she goes to the gym, i go to to the playground. I had gone to the playground, i got bored so i decided to go check on my mom, i see a few cats, i go near them to pet them, a man comes by, he was bald, looked in his 30s wore a blue striped shirt, Leather brown shoes, and jeans, he gave me a creepy grin and asked me if i would take a walk with him, i said no knowing that he would try to do something to me, he came closer, i got more scared, he then grabs my hand touching my buttox ( wich made me feel VERY unconfortable ) and he took me closer and closer to a room, he placed me on the ground, but then i just kicked him in the ( Erm….) and i sprinted running away i then took a peek if he was still there, but he’d ran away… i then go to a women officer and explain everything, she takes me to my mother, Shocked, she calls from the emergency phone, the police-man said the same thing, my mother got enraged, there was then another officer and i told him details and he said he was going to “search” for him…. then i return home to my house in hamra. Later on there was the shakira concert. i really stay with my cousins and are their friends and they went to the concert too. One of my cousins brought his friend, i then told the story to both of them, i detailed the guy. And surprisingly, It was the exact man that matched the man who was running out of a.u.b after their football rehersal at I.C——————————–thank You
