Police Reports: November 13, 2020

  • On Nov. 4 at 3:30 p.m., three female students were catcalled by a vehicle of males unaffiliated with the university on the 1100 block of W. Bradley Ave. near the St. James apartment complex. The students told police that they were walking on the sidewalk when the vehicle approached them. Each male then started verbally claiming each student for themselves. The vehicle circled back around and left the area before BUPD arrived. The license plate is unknown and the incident is under investigation.


  • A resident adviser in University Hall called BUPD to help with an unconscious male student in the bathroom on Nov. 8 at approximately midnight. When police arrived, the student was conscious, confused and admitted that he had been drinking at a local restaurant and had 10 beers. The male was underaged and admitted to police he used a fake ID to get into the restaurant, which he then turned over to the officers, stating that he got the fake ID from a friend. He was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center to receive further care. BUPD tracked down the student’s friend, who admitted that it was his fake ID that he got in Chicago. The fake ID has been turned over to the Illinois Secretary of State, and each individual could potentially have their driver’s license suspended for one year.


  • Three students were stuck in an elevator on Nov. 9 in the BECC at approximately 12:40 a.m. The Peoria fire department and building technician couldn’t open the elevator and had to call in an outside elevator technician to get them out. The students were eventually let out after being stuck inside the elevator for approximately one hour and 20 minutes. No one was injured or emotionally distressed.


  • On Nov. 11 at 1 a.m., a custodian at MacMillan Hall reported to BUPD that a male unaffiliated with the university started yelling at him and shined a flashlight in his face in the alleyway. BUPD stopped the male in Campustown and he told officers that he saw someone walk out of a building that scared him, pulled out his flashlight on his phone and told the individual to get back. However, the male suspect had been previously banned from all university property. BUPD issued him a notice to appear for trespassing and was released.


  • A female student left her purse unattended in the Michel Student Center on a chair and found that it was not there when she returned at approximately 6 p.m. on Nov. 2. The student reported this to BUPD and officers looked through security cameras in the student center. Officers found on camera that an Aramark employee stole the purse and the employee was arrested and given a notice to appear for theft. The purse was not recovered.
