Hurricane Note

A male student was taken away in handcuffs after an act of violence brought the Coral Gables police to the University Center (UC) Tuesday afternoon.

A UC Information Desk employee who arrived for work immediately after the incident subsided said he saw an African-American male in handcuffs in a first-floor office of the UC.

“All I heard is that he was choking a girl and took her to the floor,” he said.

“The guy was 5’7 or 5’8 and immensely built,” the source said. “He was huge for his height.”

Officers Faborido and Cuerdo from the Coral Gables Police Department were called to the UC at approximately 1:30 p.m., the time of the incident.

“I’m not at this point able to divulge any information.” Lt. Bill Gurlock of the Coral Gables Police Department said.

More information concerning the incident will be available in upcoming issues of the Miami Hurricane.
