Alarms blare twice at Delta Upsilon house

A resident of the Delta Upsilon fraternity house approached officers and admitted that he accidentally set off the building’s fire alarm when he lit a paper in the stairwell to watch it burn at 10 p.m. on April 6, according to Director of UR Security Walter Mauldin.

The student claimed that he lit the paper because he had nothing else to do. The house was evacuated when the alarm sounded, and the Rochester Fire Department responded.

A large quantity of firecrackers set off the fire alarm again at DU at 10:52 p.m. on April 10, according to Mauldin.

Security officers and RFD responded, and the building was evacuated.

A student approached officers arriving on the scene and admitted being responsible.

The area where the firecrackers were ignited had burn marks on the carpeting, according to UR Security.

Student physically hurt by boyfriend

A female undergraduate reported being physically handled in a rough manner by an intoxicated boyfriend as the two of them were walking back to the Residential Quad from an off-campus party at 1:30 a.m. on April 9.

There was evidence of contusions to her wrists and throat area. The male student was located by officers.

He claimed to have no recollection of the incident, but admitted that if the female had said that it had occurred, it must be true, according to UR Security.

The female was offered medical attention and police services, but she declined. The male was ordered to stay away from her, according to Mauldin.
