Police Reports: October 30, 2020

  • On Oct. 24 at approximately 9:30 p.m., BUPD was dispatched to a house on the 1000 block of N. Institute Place for complaints of loud music and people in the alleyway. When BUPD arrived, the individuals who answered the door notified others in the house that the police were there, and three people snuck out the back of the house and fled on foot. Officers talked to a male who exited the house and told him to have other people come out. The male agreed and went inside the house, where the lights were turned off and no one proceeded to come out. The incident is still under investigation. It is unknown whether the individuals are affiliated with the university.


  • A broken window and blood was found in a vacant rental house under renovation on the 900 block of N. Cooper St. by the house’s renovators on Oct. 23. The same day, BUPD received a call from a 23-year-old male alumnus who claimed he was robbed around 4 a.m. The male told BUPD that he was intoxicated and walked his friends to their residence. The last thing the male remembered was walking in the Alumni Quad and then woke up in the Cooper house with his belongings still with him, not knowing how he got in there. He then kicked in the window where he suffered a laceration to his right calf. The male went to the hospital, where he realized he was missing $400. BUPD found surveillance footage of him walking with his friends at 2:44 a.m., but never saw him walk back through Alumni Quad. The rental company did not press charges and there was not a clear explanation as to how the money was lost.


  • At approximately 6 p.m. on Oct. 24 at the Dollar Tree in Campustown, a 13-year-old female was verbally assaulted by a 30-year-old male unaffiliated with the university, according to BUPD. The male followed her inside the Dollar Tree relaying uncomfortable statements, and once she dropped an item, he held the item over her head saying, “You can’t get this.” The female ran out of the store and called BUPD. Officers identified the male and tried to arrest him, but he resisted and fled northbound toward the Main Street Commons. A BUPD squad car tried to stop him near the corner of W. Main Street and Bourland, but the male jumped over the hood of the squad car and proceeded to get away. BUPD is still searching for the male, who is wanted for assault, resisting an officer and causing $1,000 worth of damage to the squad car.


  • On Oct. 24 and Oct. 26, two thefts were reported at a residence on the 500 block of N. Glenwood Ave. After midnight on Oct. 24, the resident reported that an unknown person threw eggs at the house and stole a 10-foot-by-two-foot Trump/Pence 2020 flag mounted in the backyard. The resident reported that the flag was worth $15. There was no damage to the house. On Oct. 26, a pallet on the outside of the house with the same resident’s fraternity symbol on it was stolen by another unknown person. The resident reported the pallet to have cost $65. BUPD advised the resident to refrain from leaving unattended items out.
