  • Around 7:38 p.m. on March 5 at Bacci Pizzeria, a non-Bradley-affiliated individual who was previously banned from the establishment ordered a pizza and had an altercation with the owner after being told to leave. When confronted by the owner and asked to leave, the suspect refused and spit on the owner as they walked toward the exit. BUPD located the suspect in front of Duryea Parking Deck and they became uncooperative and refused to enter the police car. The suspect then complained of breathing issues and was transported by ambulance to UnityPoint Health – Methodist Hospital. When cleared, the suspect refused to enter the police car and had to be placed inside. The suspect was similarly uncooperative when arriving at the Peoria County Jail. The suspect was charged with assault, obstruction by not getting into the police car and trespassing. Last year, the same suspect was arrested for stealing a fire truck from a scene.                                                                                                                                                                    
  • At 10:30 p.m. on March 3 on the 1400 block of W. Barker Avenue, a Bradley alumnus’s vehicle was broken into and a backpack was stolen that contained books, clothing, a ratchet set and fishing equipment. The victim stated that their car was locked and there was no sign of forced entry. Some of the items that were in the backpack were located shortly after the incident a few blocks away from the scene. The rest of the items were found the next day in an alley on the 1500 block of W. Barker Avenue.                                                                                                                             
  • At 1 a.m. on March 4 at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, a Bradley student was touched without their consent by another student at a non-registered party. The suspect threw up and the victim was checking on them when they grabbed the victim’s back, pushed their body weight on them and touched their butt. Bystanders were questioned by BUPD and reported witnessing this incident.                                                                                                                                       
  • Around 1:59 a.m. on March 5 on the 1200 block of W. Bradley Avenue, a non-Bradley-affiliated individual was walking back to their car when they were verbally assaulted by another individual. When at their car, the suspect walked up to the individual and yelled a racist statement. The suspect’s friend said, “Hey my friend was drunk, I apologize,” before getting into a vehicle and driving away. The victim told the police that a handgun was pulled on them, but after BUPD reviewed the surveillance footage, they found that no one displayed a handgun. The victim then changed their statement to say that they assumed the suspect had a gun because their hand was in their pocket.
