Curiously, the Richmond Times Dispatch has no interest in pursuing this story, other than presenting the basic police reports on the day after each event.
Each of these events has been announced in a VCU Alert, but unfortunately, these are not archived on the alert site: http://www.vcu.edu/alert/

I don’t know if there really are more incidents or that the reporting of the incidents has changed. Could also be a little of both.
