1. Students arriving at Hylan 305 on the morning of Monday, Oct. 4, found the room in disarray after an individual had broken in over the weekend.
According to UR Security Investigator Daniel Lafferty, at some point between 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 1, and 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 4, an individual broke into the room and stole the ceiling-mounted LCD projector.
The suspect was far from meticulous with his crime, as the projector was removed by simply tearing it from its mounting bracket.
Upon discovering the room in this condition, the students alerted faculty members, who then contacted Security. The Rochester Police were also notified and responded to the scene.
As of Wednesday, no suspects have emerged in the case.
More fighting breaks out on the Frat Quad
2. Security officers patrolling the Fraternity Quad came across a fight in front of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity house at 2:44 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9.
Between eight and 12 fraternity brothers were found punching three other individuals who were on the ground. According to Lafferty, both Security and the Rochester Police Department responded, and the fighting was eventually broken up.
The two groups had conflicting stories as to the source of the brawl. According to the three individuals who were on the ground, someone on the porch of the DKE House shouted something at them as they walked by. At that point they started walking toward the house and were rushed by four other fraternity members.
According to the fraternity brothers’, an individual from the other group repeatedly spat on the lawn of the house, which caused the fighting to ensue.
One of the individuals involved suffered a bloody nose, but refused medical treatment, as both parties seemed to want to keep fighting.
After the fight disbanded, it was discovered that two of the individuals walking by the house had no affiliation to the University. They were issued ban forms and instructed to stay off University property.
As of yet, no police report has been filed and the matter has been referred to the Dean of Students’ office for further review.
Library computer used for the wrong purposes
3. Security officers were called to the Eastman School of Music’s Sibley Music Library after an individual was reported to be using one of the computers for inappropriate purposes on Friday, Oct. 1.
According to Lafferty, when Security confronted the individual, he simply walked out of the library. As he was leaving he was instructed not to return to the premises.
Individual found in secured lab
4. A suspicious individual was found in a secure lab on the third floor of Hutchinson Hall on Monday, Oct. 11.
According to Lafferty, when an environmental sciences employee tried to get a better view of the suspect, she found the lights off and the individual gone. There are currently no suspects.
