Police Reports: April 26, 2024

  • Around 10 p.m. on April 17, a Williams Hall resident advisor called BUPD when they discovered that someone had urinated in the elevator. Upon arrival, officers found large urine stains on the elevator floor. The stains appeared to spell the number nine and the letters I and N, spelling “9IN.” Custodial staff cleaned the elevator later that evening, and an investigation is ongoing. A suspect has yet to be identified, but if found, the individual faces a charge of criminal damage to property.
  • On the afternoon of April 18, a Cullom-Davis Library staff member called BUPD to report an odd interaction between a member of the public and a student employee working at the circulation desk. A member of the public who frequently patronizes the library came into the building around 4:30 p.m. and approached the student employee. The individual made comments that made the student uncomfortable. This is not the first time that the same person has made comments towards the student. In the past, they said, “Guilt is the fear of not being loved.” Most recently, the individual said “Oh, you think you know someone,” about the student’s tattoo. BUPD is following up with the matter as a non-crime investigation.
  • Around 2 a.m. on April 19, a public safety officer (PSO) patrolling on Olin Quad observed two Bradley students removing a sign promoting the student production of “Men on Boats” from the lawn. When the students noticed the officer, they dropped the sign and ran away. The students were located a few minutes later in the Heuser Art Center parking lot. BUPD questioned the students, one of whom said that they “picked up the sign but wasn’t going to take it.” The students were released with a warning and the sign was taken to the BUPD station for safe keeping.
  • At 7:16 p.m. on April 19, a PSO walking near the BUPD station in Campustown observed a non-Bradley-affiliated individual urinating on the ground next to a dumpster. The officer issued the individual a citation for public urination, a city ordinance violation. Officers do not believe this individual was involved in the Williams Hall incident.
