  • At 4:45 p.m. on April 19 in Harper Hall, a female student complained that a male student in one of her classes was following her around. During one meeting of the class, both students were partnered in a group project with one other student. After the project finished, the female student noticed that the male student was always following her around in places such as her dorm floor and the laundry room. The male student usually didn’t make contact with her except to say hello a few times. The professor of the class added that he has also observed the male student waiting around the classroom door for the female student and consistently sitting behind her in class, regardless of if she moves seats or not. BUPD spoke to the student, telling him that his behavior was alarming the female student, and ordered him to stop following her around.


  • Around 12:20 p.m. on April 15 in the student center, a contract employee yelled at a student employee for not following the rules. When the student first started working, the other employee would call her names such as “crackhead.” The employee was instructed not to call anyone names, but she did not listen and continued yelling at other student workers. When the student employee went to go make herself a sandwich, the employee told her that she was not allowed to enter the area. The student then said that she was allowed to, which started the argument between the two. Their supervisor was then involved and told the two to avoid each other except for normal work contact.


  • At 3:30 p.m. on April 15 at Burgess Hall, odd writing was left on the front windows of the building. Several messages were left on the doors in dry-erase markers. There was a mention of a pregnancy amongst one of the messages before the culprit went on a riddle-like ramble. The incident is still being investigated, and the person has not been identified.


  • Around 11:19 p.m. on April 13 in the Main Street Commons parking lot, an officer was investigating an unoccupied, running vehicle in the rear parking lot. The registered owner of the vehicle had an active warrant on file for possession of cannabis with the intent to deliver. While investigating the vehicle, they found the warrant. Once the student was identified, the student was placed in custody with the Peoria County sheriff’s office.
