Temple University students and members of the community took to Twitter to express their safety concerns following a series of random attacks on students.

@allie_palermo's tweet offers a glimpse into the mixed emotions: "Tried to stick up for Temple for too long.."

Three teens were charged as adults today for allegedly beating multiple Temple University students. The most serious assault involved the group of teens beating a 19-year-old with a brick in the face.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's office charged Najee Bilaal, 16, Zaria Estes and Kanesha Gainey, both 15, with aggravated assault, conspiracy, possession of an instrument of crime, terroristic threats, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

In addition to the concerns shared over the alleged assaults, a photo of a Temple University police officer allegedly sleeping surfaced on social media. Below is a sampling of the posts shared on Twitter.
