Police Reports: October 2, 2020

  • On Sept. 23 at 7:46 p.m. a BUPD officer flagged down two males in a car with headlights out, parked right outside the drive-thru window of the abandoned McDonald’s on Main Street. The two males removed the plywood from the drive-thru window to look into the building. When BUPD tried to confront the individuals, they drove away, but the car was found in the St. James Apartment Complex, where two students were connected to the disturbance. Both students said that they had no intention of damaging the property or entering it.


  • A BUPD dispatcher observed on a security camera a group of students piling into one of the red chairs on Alumni Quad on Sept. 26 at approximately 11 p.m. Five students piled onto the chair when it broke and one of the group members threw the chair after it was broken. The student group apologized to BUPD and said that they would be more conscientious of their actions next time.


  • On Sept. 30 at approximately 1:30 a.m. on the 1400 block of W. Main Street, a 27-year-old female unaffiliated with the university alleged she was being followed by another vehicle after she visited a liquor store on Western Avenue to withdraw money. The female alleged that when she pulled over, the vehicle pulled over as well and the person in that vehicle took out a gun and battered and choked her and then took her phone, attempted to take her car keys and left the scene. She was transported to OSF for her injuries. BUPD looked at the cameras in front of the BECC and saw that there was, in fact, no other vehicle and that the altercation occurred with someone inside her vehicle. BUPD arrested the woman for filing a false police report. She declined medical treatment and left the hospital.


  • A female resident on the 1800 block of W. Fredonia Avenue found that her door was unlocked and was concerned about someone entering her home on Sept. 27 at approximately 10:30 p.m. BUPD searched the house and it was determined that the door needed to be shut with more force for it to close. Officers also searched the garage to make sure no one was living there and fixed the resident’s garage door.
