Suspicious Person Escorted Off The Malibu Campus
Last night, December 7, 2022, a purported DoorDash driver, Justin Salter (pictured below), entered the Malibu Campus and later interacted with students near the student residence halls on “Res Road.”
Mr. Salter entered the Malibu Campus again today, December 8, 2022. Following student tips to Public Safety, including via LiveSafe, linking Mr. Salter with social media posts with disturbing hashtags, Pepperdine’s Public Safety department located Mr. Salter and, out of an abundance of caution, notified the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD). LASD engaged with Mr. Salter and did not perceive a credible threat. Public Safety and LASD escorted Mr. Salter off campus with a formal admonishment that he is not allowed to return to any Pepperdine campus.
Thank you to the students who informed Public Safety of this situation. Pepperdine University is committed to the safety and well-being of our community. If you see Mr. Salter, please contact the Department of Public Safety at 310.506.4441 or notify them via the LiveSafe app.
