On Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 5:40 p.m., Campus Police was dispatched to the New Library on a report of harassment.

Upon arrival, officers met with a female student who said that while using AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) on a library computer, she received alarming messages from an unidentified user from the screen names “NaturallyMe28” and “Haunting4u001.”

The messages said “Look behind you and watch your back,” “Keep your doors and windows locked” and “You talk smart for a dead girl.” The user identified himself only as John, but he knew the student’s name and was trying to get to know her, the student told police.

There is no further information at this time.


On Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 2:10 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to the outdoor basement level of the Travers and Wolfe Hall link on a drug possession call.

Upon arrival, officers met with another officer, who witnessed two male students outside the dining hall glass. The officer said he saw the first student sitting on the steps and attempting to roll a marijuana cigarette while the second student watched.

The officer then approached and detained the two students while he waited for more officers to respond. While detaining the students, the officer observed a bag of green, leafy vegetation, which he believed to be marijuana. He also observed a pack of “E-Z Wider” rolling papers.

When asked, the first student told officers that the bag was his marijuana and that he and his friend were planning to smoke it. The first student was handcuffed and searched and the second student was taken to Campus Police Headquarters.

There is no further information at this time.


On Friday, Feb. 3 at 1:45 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to Travers Hall on a report of a disturbance.

Upon arrival, officers met with a male student who said he had been struck in the head during an altercation.

At that time, Lions’ EMS was called and arrived minutes later to treat the victim for a contusion on the left side of his forehead.

After being treated, the victim told officers that the argument started when he entered a room on the sixth floor of Travers Hall and pushed a friend of the suspect. The suspect, another male student, started to yell loudly at the victim, at which time the victim left the room and went back to his own.

The suspect followed the victim to his room, knocked on the door and was let in by the victim. When the victim turned his back, he told police, the suspect grabbed him in a bear hug. The victim became scared and started to struggle with the suspect. To get the suspect to release his grip, the victim told him “I’m getting a knife,” at which point the suspect struck the victim on the head with his fist.

The suspect then left the area to cool off. As the officers took the victim’s statement, the suspect returned to the area and gave officers a similar version of the events.

The knife in question was a small-edged implement attached to a nail file. The community advisor (CA) on the scene was told to call Campus Police if any more problems arise. Both the victim and suspect were advised that a report of the incident would be on file.

There is no further information at this time.
