The victim had left her bag on the bench of New Residence Hall’s main lobby at 3 a.m. that day and first noticed it missing at 12 p.m. Serial numbers for some of the items were provided to Campus Police and the victim was told to report back to Campus Police if she found the rest of the items’ information.

Campus Police were dispatched to Decker Hall at 10:50 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, on report of an intoxicated female. The female was reportedly found outside of the building and had been completely incoherent. When questioned, she was unable to answer, but admitted that she drank a “Solo Cup Smirnoff.” The suspect was transported to Capital Health Systems-Hopewell campus for treatment and issued a summons for underage consumption of alcohol.

A series of similar graffiti designs were found between Thursday, Sept. 12, at 8:45 a.m. and Saturday, Sept. 14, at 10 a.m. On Thursday, Campus Police were dispatched to Green Hall on report of criminal mischief and discovered the words: “To quit is to fail” in a blue/purple ink on the top step. Then, on Saturday, Campus Police discovered “Be THE Best” and “Dave,” written backwards, in a similar blue/purple ink on the steel entry door after they were dispatched on report of criminal mischief.  On the same day, the graffiti was found on a water fountain near the Football Field.  For all of the above cases, Building Services was contacted to remove the graffiti. There were no witnesses or suspects to any of the cases.

A white male was found urinating at the West Gate of the Soccer Complex at 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The suspect had reportedly been returning from Senior Night at Rho Nightclub in Trenton and was heading back to his off-campus house.  He was issued a summons for urinating in public.
