View Campus Crime Map: May 2010 in a larger map
The Department of Public Safety’s Daily Crime Log only listed fifteen crimes for the month of May—a low for 2010. But, May saw one serious crime—an unknown suspect assaulted two DPS officers during the Reggae Tent party held in McDonough Gymnasium during Senior Week. Otherwise, a flurry of thefts and burglaries occurred across campus, with fraud, unlawful entry, and public indecency thrown in for good measure. Here’s the breakdown of last month’s crimes:
- According to the DPS Crime Log, the suspect who assaulted the two DPS officers was identified and charged with assault. When reached for comment, Public Safety Associate Director Joseph Smith wrote, “It would be inappropriate for me to comment at this time.” DPS and MPD are currently investigating the case, but we promise to publish details about the assaults as they emerge.
- Seven thefts occurred on and around campus in May. In all cases, no witnesses observed the crimes and no suspects have been identified. Oddly enough, the report includes a case of stolen “cooking utensils.” Must be some expensive utensils.
- Two burglaries occurred, one of which Vox reported late last week. In the other case, a laptop was stolen from an unsecured room in Village C West.
- DPS caught two people publicly urinating last month in Village A, and then outside of McDonough Gymnasium a few days later during the aforementioned Reggae Tent party.
- An unknown suspect(s) fraudulently used a credit card at Epicurean.
- Someone decided to take a unlawful stroll through the Gervase Building around 4 a.m. on the 16th, only to be identified by DPS after exiting.
