Riverside Community College District police seek suspects after attempted carjacking at Moreno Valley College

Two armed men attempted a carjacking Sept. 13 in a Moreno Valley College parking lot.

President of Moreno Valley College, Robin Steinback, sent a mass message to MVC students regarding two male suspects involved.

The incident occurred around 9 p.m. Both suspects, who were allegedly armed with handguns, tried to take the car keys of a student in parking lot A.

RCCD police responded as the suspects fled from the MVC campus after more students showed up in the parking lot.

A search was then initiated by the police in coordination with other local police agencies.
According to Steinback, the suspects were apprehended by Riverside Sheriff’s deputies in Hemet in a different car they had stolen off campus. Nobody was seriously injured.

The mass email emphasizes that, “At this time, there is no ongoing threat related to this crime at Moreno Valley College.

RCCD police are said to continue the investigation but were unavailable for comment.
MVC is extending the hours at its Student Health and Psychological Services, for those who need it.

Coffee shop in downtown Riverside brings back weekly jazz night for the community

Swingle’s Sextet captivated customers at downtown Riverside’s coffee haunt Back to the Grind. Fridays at 6:30pm the café is home to a weekly jazz night featuring local performers.

The sextet enchanted café patrons with a rendition of Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood” on Sept. 1. Ripley Swingle, the band’s tenor saxophonist and namesake, led in a slow and controlled progression which induced a distinct pause in customers’ murmured conversations and the clank and hiss of espresso machines.

EDITORIAL: Parking plagues campus once again

The surest sign that we are officially free of pandemic restrictions is the $50 bill we dished out for parking this semester.

Despite having over ten different lots, including a 5 level parking garage, Riverside City College is once again the home to jam-packed parking lots and occasional collisions due to the influx of traffic.

It was nice to be able to park without having to pay over the last few semesters and it made sense since many students were still enrolled in online courses and on campus attendance was still low.

This semester noticeably welcomed an abundance of students and it is more than obvious we’ve returned to being a crowded campus, especially when trying to find a place to park.

Riverside City College dominates El Camino, become 3-0 this season

The Riverside City College defense played lights out the entire game as the team limited El Camino College to only six points and created four turnovers.

The Tigers dominated the Warriors to become 3-0 in the season with a 45-6 victory.

“The defense played really well,” Riverside coach Tom Craft said. “They got lined up quickly, they were more focused, we didn’t give up a deep pass and I am proud of them.”

After a touchdown on the first drive of the game, the Tigers defense gave the team much needed momentum as freshman cornerback Qualyn McQueen intercepted a pass from Warriors quarterback Dayton Tafoya. He credited defensive coordinator James Kuk.
