Police Reports: April 2, 2021

  • On March 25 at approximately 11 p.m., an unaffiliated female was driving on the 700 block of W. Moss Avenue when she stopped and asked an unaffiliated male if he was alright. The 18-year-old male then asked if he could get a ride, but she refused to give him one. The suspect then pulled out a gun with a green laser and pointed it at the female and she took off in her car and called the police. When BUPD arrived, the suspect was at the entrance of Landmark Apartments. The female identified the suspect, and police found he had the gun on him. He was then arrested for aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a firearm under 21. He was also arrested on a warrant for retail theft and transported to Peoria County Jail.

 

  • A Subway employee in Campustown called BUPD on March 25 at 6 p.m. about an unaffiliated man panhandling and using drugs. The employee told police that the 38-year-old suspect came in to use the bathroom and stayed in there for at least an hour before coming out, seeming to be under the influence of drugs. When officers searched the bathroom, they found an orange cap — mainly used for hypodermic needles — in the trash can. Officers went outside to talk to the suspect when they noticed a needle sticking out of his front pocket. They then tried to detain the male. The suspect fled from officers in the parking lot but was tackled near the entrance of Campustown off W. Main Street. The suspect fought with the officers until backup arrived to help detain the suspect. Officers found other hypodermic needles in his backpack, but they did not find any drugs. The suspect was taken to the Order of St. Francis Hospital due to signs that indicated he was under the influence of heroin and to treat an abrasion on his head. He was later transported to Peoria county jail.

 

  • On March 27 at approximately 12:45 a.m., a public safety officer viewed three suspects— two males and one female—trying to take a sign off a fence at the Whittier Primary School playground. When the officer tried to approach the suspects, they fled the area and were not caught. The officer took the sign down for safekeeping. The suspects are wanted for attempted theft and the incident is still under investigation.
