Rape was on the rise at UCSD during 2016, with ten cases reported, versus eight the year before, according to the school’s latest Clery Report, required by federal law to be filed annually. Arson reports also jumped, from 4 to 7. Hate crimes went from zero to three, including “one on-campus intimidation incident characterized by gender identity bias.”
Over at cross-town rival San Diego State, rapes fell to 7 from 19 in 2015. On the other hand, robberies leapt from 5 to 14, with drug-law arrests rising to 89 from 86.
