Student faints suddenly in LeChase Hall

2. On Feb. 7, at 4:47 p.m., officers responded to LeChase Hall after a student reportedly passed out.

A nearby EMT evaluated the student and determined that she was breathing but not conscious. A responding security officer dispatched a Rural/Metro ambulance and the Rochester Fire Department.

As the student was being loaded onto the gurney, she regained consciousness, Keirsbilck said. The student was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital to be treated.

Authorities were unable to determine the cause of the incident at the scene.

Old Sibley Library cabinet forcibly opened

3. On Feb. 5, staff at the Eastman School of Music reported that a secured equipment cabinet at the Old Sibley Library was broken into.

A second report on Feb. 7 reported a similar incident at the Eastman Theatre. In both cases, the cabinets were forcibly opened, but nothing was taken. Staff believe the suspect wanted to use the equipment without the proper approval, which requires reserving the room.

There’s no indication of who may have been involved in these incidents or if they are related, Keirsbilck said.

Break-in in Spurrier near practice rooms

4. On Feb. 11, an officer responded to a burglary report in Spurrier Hall. Someone had forcibly entered a room near the rear of the building, adjacent to the practice rooms.

A computer keyboard tray appeared to have been used to smash a door handle, allowing entry to the secured room.

A second door handle was missing, allowing access to an inner room that had several pieces of musical equipment.

The group that uses the room was notified, but nothing was missing except one of the broken door handles, Keirsbilck said.
