After a warning e-mail addressing rumors of an upcoming confrontation was sent to Fraternity presidents on the Fraternity Quad, two students were injured stemming from a fight involving members from Sigma Alpha Mu and Psi Upsilon on the Quad shortly before 2 a.m. on Oct. 26.
“Because of certain rumors and allegations that have come to my attention,” Associate Dean of Students in charge of discipline Matt Burns wrote in the Oct. 23 e-mail, “I feel it necessary to advise any organization or any member of an organization to refrain from any verbal or physical altercation associated with the conflict on the [Fraternity Quad]. [Any] organization involving itself in such acts is likely to receive very serious sanctions through our judicial system.”
The two students that were injured during the incident were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty. No police reports have currently been filed by the injured students.
The cause of the incident is still under investigation, and has been referred to the Dean of Students Office and the Director of Greek Affairs, according to UR Security.
Car stolen from Valentine Lot
A student’s 1993 Honda Accord was stolen from Valentine Lot between 2:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. on Oct. 24. The car – valued at $3,000 – was parked near the athletic fields.
The student filed a report with the RPD, according to Lafferty.
Students robbed off campus at gunpoint
Three students were robbed at gunpoint while they were leaving 1035 Genesee Street before midnight on Oct. 24, according to security.
Two unidentified suspects emerged from a nearby bush and ordered the students to the ground. The suspects then proceeded to pat down the students, taking a cell phone and backpack.
Two of the students reported that they were struck in the back of the head by a suspect, but both refused medical attention.
After the suspects fled the area, the students sought safety in the Genesee Street residence, which house members of the Chi Phi fraternity. Those in the house notified the Rochester Police Department and provided first aid to the two injured students.
The students filed a report with the RPD and the students notified UR Security, according to Lafferty.
