Rochester resident uses library computers to full potential
According to Lafferty, a 45-year- old man was arrested on Monday on charges of public lewdness, the most recent in a series of similar crimes.
The man was identified as David Hennelly, a Rochester resident. Upon investigation, he was found to have no affiliation with the University.
Hennelly was observed viewing pornography on a computer in the circulation desk area in Rush Rhees Library. Security officers who responded to the complaint also observed the display on the computer.
Hennelly was removed from the library by police and taken to the Public Safety Building for processing.
He was given an interim ban form to stay off of University property.
Incident proves that where there’s smoke, there’s fire
On Saturday night at 8:49 p.m. a security officer patrolling the area near Towers noticed smoke coming from a parked vehicle in the metered spaces along Wilson Boulevard, according to Lafferty.
The officer turned around to find that the vehicle was indeed on fire. He immediately contacted the Rochester Fire Department, who arrived and extinguished the fire.
The owner of the car was soon identified as a student. The student was questioned and said that he had smelled smoke when he parked the car but did not think it to be a strange or unusual occurrence.
The student had his car towed to a repair facility, and the area around the inflamed car was given extra salting due to the water run off.Information provided by UR Security.
