Four cars parked in UR lots were broken into on three separate occasions between Monday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 13.
UR Security dispatchers observed two individuals checking cars in Wilson North Lot Monday, March 5, Security Investigator Dan Lafferty said.
As a dispatcher was summoning officers, he saw one of the individuals breaking the window of a parked car in the lot. As the officers arrived, the suspects ran into the cemetery.
About an hour later, officers who noticed fresh tracks in the snow leading from the cemetery to Wilson Boulevard searched the area and found the suspects near the water authority building on Wilson Boulevard.
After they were identified, the suspects admitted that they had broken into the car.
The victim said he planned to press criminal charges with the Rochester Police Department.
Someone broke into the cars of two students between Sunday, March 11 and Tuesday, March 13.
The cars were parked in Nuclear Structure Research Lab Lot.
One of the cars had a broken window and the second was found with an open door. There were no signs of forced entry and the owner said he had locked the car, Lafferty said. Both owners said that there was nothing stolen from their cars.
Officers then found a car in Park Lot with its trunk lid open Tuesday, March 13.
The passenger side window had been smashed. The owner said his car stereo equipment and 100 compact discs were missing.
Students mugged at Eastman dorm
Six students were robbed at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23 on Gibbs Street outside the Eastman Living Center.
The students reported that a male suspect approached them and grabbed one of them by the shoulder while pressing a sharp object into the student?s back.
The attacker demanded that the other students empty their pockets and said that if they did not, he would hurt their friend, Lafferty said.
The students complied and dropped their property on the ground. The suspect then demanded that they pick up the money and give it to him, which they did.
The suspect then fled the area, running toward Main Street. One of the students called RPD. on his cellular phone while another ran into the Living Center and called Security.
The student whom the attacker grabbed reported a minor injury made by the sharp object, but declined medical attention.
