A UR Security vehicle was struck by BBs fired from the vicinity of the Psi Upsilon fraternity house at around 2 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 30, according to UR Security.

The officer driving the vehicle stopped and called for backup. He saw two suspects enter the YU House from the fire escape.

The suspects surrendered the weapon, but neither their names or identities have been determined, according to security.

YU President and senior Chris Johnson said the suspects are not brothers of the fraternity.

This incident is still under investigation.

Undergrad attacked on Wilson Boulevard

While walking on Wilson Boulevard at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 11, an undergraduate was assaulted by several unidentified suspects, according to security.

Ignoring comments made by one of the suspects, the victim attempted to continue northbound on the Boulevard when he was hit on the back of the neck by an object.

After being pushed to the ground, the victim was able to free himself and call security from Fauver Stadium. A search of the area was fruitless, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.

The victim refused medical treatment for injuries incurred during the attack, and planned to file a police report at a later date.
