1. On Thursday, Sept. 27, at 2:03 p.m., a staff member reported seeing an individual on the first floor of Rush Rhees Library wearing a pink, fairy princess backpack and wandering aimlessly about the library, according to UR Security Investigator Roger Keirsbilck.
The staff member followed the individual around the library until he left the building, exiting onto Eastman Quadrangle. The staff member told UR Security that the individual was unaware of his surroundings and unfamiliar with the University.
The individual was seen entering and exiting Lattimore Hall and outside of Strong Auditorium before he got into a car parked on Wilson Boulevard. Responding officers could not locate either the individual or the car.

Students abandon charcoal grill, dash away
4. On Saturday, Sept. 30, at 1:35 a.m., a Security officer saw two males carrying a charcoal grill in front of the Susan B. Anthony Residence Halls. When the officer stopped to ask them about the grill, they dropped it and ran away. The two males were observed crossing the bridge to Hill Court and entering Chambers Hall on security camera footage. Security officers entered Chambers but could not determine which suite the males had entered, Keirsbilck said. The grill was taken by Security until the owner can be identified.
Men get preachy with passersby
5. Security officers at the Eastman School of Music received a report of two males near the intersection of Main and Gibbs streets shouting gospel and commenting about fornication to bystanders. The individuals refused to stop yelling or speak with Security officers, who contacted Rochester Police. Police officers made contact with the individuals, but could not make them leave because they were not impeding traffic, threatening or speaking obscenities. The males continued yelling for about an hour before leaving of their own volition, Keirsbilck said.
