The student told officers she was trying to sell her iPad on the “Bradley Buy, Sell, Trade” Facebook page, and she had been contacted by a male who was interested in purchasing it.

The student invited the man to her residence to pick up and pay for the iPad, and he arrived at her home with an unknown female. While looking at the iPad, the male threw money in the student’s face, and both the male and female ran off.

No suspects have been identified.

Eventually, the student contacted the police. When officers arrived, the student led them to the suspects. The officers asked the two males if they had been the ones throwing the rocks, and one of the males said, “Yes.”

The student said he saw his roommate cleaning the gun in the common area of their apartment several months ago. The roommate was contacted by the Bradley University Police Department for an interview.

Initially, the roommate said he did not have a gun. After officers told him people had seen him with it, the roommate told the police he previously had the gun in November, but it was no longer on campus or in the apartment.



An argument between a customer and a manager broke out at 5:15 p.m. April 1 at the Campustown Dollar Tree.

Police were notified that an unknown female wearing a tutu knocked over a display in the store and was causing a scene. Police located the female outside of the store and asked her what the problem was. She said she was arguing with the manager because the manager would not blow up a balloon that her sister brought into the store using the store’s helium. When the female approached the store employees, the manager was aggressive toward her.

No charges were filed.
