You just described BYU-Provo! Same thing. I had an attempted rape, while getting my mail at Cannon Center. He wrestled me to the floor and had broken my arm, by the time some football player friends of mine heard my screaming, and pulled the perp off of me, and dragged him away.
You're right about "Mormons could do harm to other Mormons." I wish I had learned that lesson. I got married in the temple to a smiling, "gentle giant" RM, who was related to a GA. The GA and the rest of his family had kept his criminal history hidden from me and my family. He beat me, for several months, and almost killed me, before I finally divorced him.
Why do people think there are locked lockers in the Mormon God's temple?
On the BYU campus, I never ventured out alone at night. I was raised in the city, and I knew better. Still--going to my religion class, I was chased by someone who jumped out from behind the bushes, and tried to grab me. (I was a fast runner). Another time, on my way to a 7:00 am science lab, I was accosted by a flasher, who had a reputation, and was called "The Whistler". My bicycle was stolen the first day at BYU--and I had carefully locked it. When I had a car, the three times I forgot to lock it, everything was taken out of it--books, clothes, whatever was in there. Strange, but I've attended 2 other universities, and have negotiated several big cities, and have never had one thing stolen, or one person attack me! Only at BYU.
The BYU girls bathrooms had shelves for books, by the mirrors, and I left my books there, and they were stolen. I got wise, and took everything with me into the little toilet stall, which was very awkward and cramped, so I laid my books on the floor in front of me. Some hands reached under the stall door, and grabbed my books! So, it was books on my lap, from then on. A friend put her books under her desk in a classroom, and those were stolen, by the person sitting behind her.
Roommates were assigned, for first-semester freshmen in Helaman Halls, and my roommate was a religious fanatic that read the BOM every morning and every night, and she was also jealous, and a nasty gossip. Many of my possessions went missing, such as money, my high school graduation watch, and other jewelry, and even clothes, so I was always careful to lock the room. At the end of the year, my roommate confessed that she had stolen all those things, and the bishop would not let her go on a mission, unless she paid me back. I told her those things were priceless, were not there when I needed them, and that her gossip was just as hurtful to me and my friends.
BYU campus security did nothing to help us. I will be forever indebted to those football players who rescued me. By the way, the guy who broke my arm was engaged to the girl across the hall from me in the dorm! My niece's roommate's fiancee raped her, and got away with it. He asked to come into the apartment, and wait in the living room, for his fiancee to come home, and they were alone in the apartment. My niece became anorexic, and left BYU, and went to another nursing school, and graduated from there. The fiancee was never prosecuted, and my niece got the blame, for letting him into the apartment!
I don't know about emergency call booths at BYU-I, but I know there are a lot of them, all over the BYU campus, with more lights--and I'll bet these get used a lot! Kids have cell phones, and I wonder if those help dispel assaults and rapes. I doubt it, as campus security never shows up, anyway.
