Police Reports: September 15, 2023

  • Around 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 7 at the Campustown Subway, a non-Bradley-affiliated individual poured a beverage into a personal cup from the fountain drink machine. After a confrontation with Subway management, the individual poured out the beverage, but refused to pay. BUPD officers made contact with the individual and led them back to the business where they paid for the beverage.
  • At 6:36 a.m. on Sept. 9, an unconscious individual was found laying in the parking lot near the BUPD station by a BUPD officer. The non-Bradley-affiliated individual was unresponsive and appeared to be seizing. Two doses of Narcan were administered. The individual was successfully resuscitated and transported to St. Francis Medical Center. On Sept. 12 at 9:42 p.m., that same individual returned to the BUPD station and knocked on the North entrance door. They reported experiencing symptoms of an oncoming seizure and that they took trazodone and consumed alcohol. After making contact with officers, the individual collapsed. They were then transported to Carle Methodist Hospital by ambulance.
  • Around 8:45 p.m. on Sept. 10 at 1017 W. Main St., three unknown individuals stole a non-Bradley-affiliated individual’s personal and business property. At 9:31 p.m. University Police issued a Community Advisory Alert that incorrectly identified the suspects as “approximately 12-14 years old.” After further investigation, BUPD narrowed the individuals’ age range to be between 15 and 17 years old. Some of the victim’s property was recovered at the intersection of N. Frink St. and W. Main St. One individual punched the victim in the face and broke their glasses, but did not inflict serious injury. An investigation is ongoing. If apprehended, the individuals face charges of strong arm robbery.
  • At 2:05 p.m. on Sept. 11 on Elmwood Ave., a Bradley student lost control of their vehicle while reversing out of a parking space. The student, mistaking the accelerator as the brake, reversed over an elevated median, hit a traffic sign and collided with three parked vehicles belonging to other Bradley students. The police report listed “lack of driver skill” as the primary cause of the collision. The other vehicles were unoccupied at the time of the incident and no one was injured.
