  • Around 8:08 p.m. on April 6, a student was approached in his vehicle by two juvenile culprits in the Main Street Commons parking lot. Upon approaching the student, one of the culprits lifted up their shirt and revealed an object that resembled a gun. They then told the student to get out of the vehicle, which he did. The perpetrators got into the student’s vehicle and drove off. The two suspects were spotted by the Peoria Police Department (PPD) and subsequently pursued. The suspects crashed the car and fled on foot, and were later apprehended by the PPD.

  • At 3:56 a.m. on April 10 at 830 Elmwood Ave., PPD stopped a vehicle that had been stolen. The vehicle had been unknowingly taken from the visitors’ parking lot due to it being unlocked with the keys left inside. PPD spotted the vehicle, which then fled from the scene. At 5:12 a.m., they located the vehicle again, and a group of juvenile suspects fled out of the vehicle. Two of the suspects were put in custody.

  • Around 2:40 a.m. on April 9 at the St. James Student Apartment Complex, an intoxicated male over the age of 21 locked himself out of his apartment. BUPD was dispatched to St. James to assist the student after he dialed 911. The dispatcher said that the student sounded intoxicated during the call. When BUPD got there, they were unable to find the student, so they called his phone. His friend answered for him, stating that he was in his apartment, so he could look after him after seeing him wandering around outside of the apartments. When BUPD found the student, he told them that he was drinking at a fraternity house. AMT arrived at the scene and the student was able to sign a refusal, after which he was allowed back into his apartment.
