closely with students

cil candidates discussed with The
Michigan Daily
the important NOTEBOOK
issues surround-
ing tomorrow's City Council pri-
mary election.
CANDIDATES EMPHASIZE
STUDENT OUTREACH
While both Ward 2 candidates
said the need for increasing dia-
logue between the council and the
student body is crucial to improving
the community, City Council mem-
ber Stephen Rapundalo (D-Ward 2)
said he has a record of facilitating
such discourse, particularly due to
his past work in student govern-
ment.
"I have quite a record of sup-
porting students and student issues,
part of that goes back' to when I
was student government presi-
dent," Rapundalo said. "I'm a little
bit more sensitive to student issues
than most of my colleagues."
He added the city needs to
improve the quality of its services,
but he defended public safety offi-

AAPD says they
suspect one or
two attackers
By BRIENNE PRUSAK and

Managing News Editor and
Daily StajfjReporter
As part of the Ann Arbor
Police Department's continued
efforts in searching for suspects
involved in the recent series of
assaults against women in the
community, they are enlisting all

resources available, including the
Federal Bureau of Investigations.
Ann Arbor Police Chief Bar-
nett Jones announced at a press
conference on July27 that the city
is currently in the process of find-
ing one or two suspects as part of
its investigation into six assaults
against women since July 15. Four
of the assaults have been catego-
rized as sexual assaults - two of
which were rapes.
Jones - whose announce-
ment followed a July 26 sexual
assault where a woman was
grabbed from behind and fondled
on the 700 block of South State

Street at about 11:30 p.m. while
walking to her car - confirmed
on July 27 the correlations in
descriptions of the attackers led
AAPD to conclude the assaults
were carried out by either one or
two suspects.
He also said AAPD pledges to
use all available resources to bring
the offender or offenders into cus-
tody. Among those resources is
the FBI, which announced July
28 it will aid in the investigations.
AAPD requested the FBI's
assistance on these cases, accord-
ing to FBI Special Agent Sandra
