Students residing in Fairchild Hall and Susan B. Anthony Halls separately reported receiving annoying phone calls from an unidentified male caller on Friday night, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.
In one case, the caller simply laughed when the victim answered the phone. In the other, the caller led the student to believe he was a telemarketer until he began to ask the student strange questions, at which point the student hung up.
The students intend to file police reports at a later time.
Bus driver pulled over due to health problems
Security officers, along with MERT personnel and Rural Metro employees, responded to a call for assistance from a Regional Transit Service bus driver in the Wilder Tower parking lot on Friday at 8:16 p.m, according to Lafferty.
The driver was experiencing symptoms including shortness of breath and tingling in his extremities. He had pulled into the lot as soon as he began feeling symptoms.
The driver was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where he received further evaluation and care.
Unauthorized party broken up in Slater
An unauthorized party in Slater House shut down shortly after midnight on Saturday night, according to Lafferty.
At the time security arrived, there were between 30 and 40 people in attendance. All of the partygoers left the suite without trouble.
One of the hosts of the event was identified by Security and was reminded of the University policy that all parties must be registered.
Excessive snow causes grief for many
On Wednesday afternoon the City of Rochester declared an official “snow emergency” after 20 inches of snow fell, according to Director of University Security Walter Mauldin.
The snow briefly affected RTS bus service to Rush Rhees Library on Wednesday evening, as a driver reported having difficulty getting past the incline of Library Road.
Grounds crew were soon notified and plowed the area and, after a site check, buses resumed service on the road.
Cell phone thief takes advantage of daytime minutes
On Thursday, Feb. 1, a student inadvertently left her cellular phone in the Rush Rhees ITC, according to Lafferty.
The phone, which was left at a computer station, was not to be found even after the student checked areas in ITC and the library. The student learned afterward that an unidentified suspect had used the student’s phone extensively.
The student intends to file a police report at a later time.
