Police Reports: November 6, 2020

  • Around 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 28, a female unaffiliated with the university called BUPD about a male, also unaffiliated with Bradley, lying on the ground. When the female approached the male to help him, she realized he had a handgun in his waistband. The male proceeded to walk toward the intersection of W. Main Street and N. Maplewood Avenue when officers approached him. BUPD arrested and detained the male who was wanted on several charges which included carrying a stolen handgun. However, the male had overdosed on an unknown drug and was taken in an ambulance to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center. Once the male was released from the hospital, he was given a notice to appear in court and was released by BUPD.


  • Two female students reported a burglary to BUPD on Oct. 30 at approximately 9 a.m. at their residence on the 1600 block of W. Ayres Ave. The females told BUPD that they came into their house through the backdoor the night before and did not lock the deadbolt on the door. The next morning, they woke up to find that their kitchen drawer was in the second-floor hallway; however, their kitchen is on the first floor. Officers searched the entire house and did not find anyone inside, and nothing was missing from the property.


  • On Oct. 31 at 2 a.m., security cameras caught three male students walking in the alleyway near the Sigma Chi Fraternity House when they began to throw eggs and tomatoes at the house. Damage was caused to three window screens. One suspect was issued a notice to appear in court for criminal damage to property and the other two suspects are still under investigation. All were cooperative with BUPD.


  • Officers were dispatched to the closed McDonald’s on W. Main Street near the Main Street Commons on Oct. 31 at 5:20 p.m. because a group of juveniles were reportedly fighting in the parking lot. When officers arrived, the group ran away; however, BUPD caught one juvenile, who proceeded to resist officers and tried to kick out the window of the police car. BUPD released the suspect to his parent.


  • On Nov. 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Apartment Complex, a male student called BUPD after he received a Facebook message instructing him to purchase an iTunes gift card. The male student sent money to the Facebook profile that messaged him believing that he would receive additional funds. The male student sent $100; however, he discovered that $600 was missing from his bank account the next day. The case is still under investigation.
