Police Reports: April 29, 2022

  • Around 6:45 a.m. on April 25 in Harper Hall, a student got her arm stuck in one of the elevators. When BUPD officers arrived, they saw a female student standing in the lobby with half of her arm in the elevator. In her hand, still stuck inside the elevator, was a bowl of oatmeal. The student was not in any distress or pain. The officers pried the doors of the elevator open and instructed her to drop the bowl of oatmeal and take her hand out. The Peoria Fire Department arrived on the scene, but the student refused any treatment.

  • At 9:55 a.m. on April 25 at an off-campus house, a Bradley employee was punched in the mouth by an acquaintance. When police arrived for questioning, the employee was uncooperative when being examined by the medics, even going as far as jumping out of the ambulance. He was also uncooperative during the time he was being questioned, answering with expletives and threats toward the suspect. The employee claimed that the reason for the punch was “because I get more bitches than him.” He refused to press charges against the suspect. The person who punched the employee was not affiliated with the university.

  • Around 11:45 p.m. on April 21 at an off-campus fraternity house, an unknown person entered the residence and took multiple banners and left flowers. The person walked in through an unlocked front door and stole the following banners from the house: a Bradley banner, a “Don’t rush Delta Upsilon” flag, a flag with a panda riding a bulldog and a Busch Light flag. In return, the person left eight white daffodil flowers in the foyer. One of the victims said that it was a prank, but was still unsettled and perplexed by the actions. The members of the house have yet to get their flags back.

  • At 2:44 a.m. on April 22 at the Delta Upsilon fraternity house, four unknown males attempted to make contact at the house. The four males, all in their mid-to-late teens, rode their bikes toward the rear of the house in the alleyway. They walked through the alley, and one male touched the door handle while another stood to the side as the lookout. They then walked to the front door of the fraternity, knocked and looked through the front doors. The males waited for a moment before walking to the east side of the house and around some cars in the parking lot. It was unclear if they were looking through the windows and pulling on the car’s door handles. The males rode off and pulled their masks on before pausing at Sigma Nu’s dumpster for a moment before leaving.
