  • Around 5:15 p.m. on Nov. 16, a non-Bradley-affiliated resident of an Underhill Street apartment complex received a notification that a package had arrived. When they checked in the lobby, they could not locate the package. They knocked on the door of a neighboring apartment to ask the residents if they had seen it. A male resident followed the individual back to their apartment, where he kicked in their door. A female resident followed behind him, holding a handgun. The female resident entered the victim’s apartment and discharged the weapon, firing four rounds into the ceiling. Both residents were apprehended by police and transported to the Peoria County Jail. The male resident was charged with home invasion and criminal damage to property. The female resident was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm.
  • At 3:38 a.m. on Nov. 19, a Bradley student living off campus on Callender Avenue called 911 when they came home to find their roommate’s friend, also a Bradley student, passed out on their back porch, covered in vomit. Emergency medical services arrived and transported the 20-year-old student, who was struggling to balance or speak, to St. Francis Medical Center. The student who reported the incident told police that they only know the student’s first name and that they do not live at their residence. The case has been referred to the Office of Residential Living and Student Conduct.
  • At 12:22 p.m. on Nov. 22, BUPD officers witnessed a non-Bradley-affiliated individual attempting to enter Westlake Hall and the Cullom-Davis Library. Officers made contact with the individual who stated that they were trying to locate the Hayden-Clark Alumni Center, where they had left personal property. The individual slept on a bench inside of the Alumni Center the night before. The individual’s person and property were searched, and they were released without incident. The individual has been trespassed from Bradley’s campus.
  • Around 8 p.m. on Nov. 17, a Williams Hall resident called BUPD after disagreements with their roommate came to a head. The reporting roommate requested that the door be locked whenever possible, and the other roommate would not agree to lock the door every time they left the room. Officers were called when the reporting roommate, upon returning to the room, noticed that some of their belongings had been moved on their desk by comparing the desk to photos they took before leaving. The reporting roommate also informed police that they don’t like when their roommate hums, and that since their argument began, they have been humming more often. They told officers that they hope that their request to change rooms will be granted.
