SAN JOSE (KRON) — A scary situation for members of a San Jose State University sorority Tuesday morning, as one woman woke up to burglars in her sorority house room.
The incident was reported at the Kappa Delta sorority house just after 3 a.m. A sorority girl said she woke up to intruders wearing hoodies in her room.
“People were inside the residence,” a San Jose police spokesman said. “They went inside and took stuff.”
Police are calling the individuals who were inside the sorority house burglars. They did not hurt or assault anyone, but officers said they stole small eletronics and possibly other items. A handful of girls were inside the house at the time, police said.
But many were not there because the spring semester has not started yet. Nevertheless, there are serious concerns from those in other sororities.
“Personally, in my house there has been a lot of break-ins,” Delta Zeta sorority member Jennifer Yee said. “We always…caution our girls to please lock the doors.”
The Kappa Delta house is located on a street with many of the university’s sororities and fraternities. It is a street that is also home to several halfway houses and shelters.
“I think as students in San Jose, we have to really look out for each other,” Yee said.
Officers have not released a description of the hooded individuals who were inside the sorority house. In fact, they aren’t even sure if they were male or female.
The university did not send out a warning out to students.
The Kappa Delta sorority issued a statement:
“No members were harmed. We are thankful for the quick and thorough response of the SJSU police department and appreciate the support we have received from the Fraternity and Sorority community.”
