Scratch and go

A hit and run was reported to Campus Safety on Oct. 12 around 4:30 p.m. in the Theatre Parking Lot.

The victim was a female student with a 2011 four-door Nissan Murano.

She returned to her vehicle after class to find scratches and scrapes on right side of the car, said John Farmer, chief of Campus Safety.

The cameras were not in range to catch the suspect and no note was left on the car, Farmer said.

Unknown skater

A student code of conduct violation was reported on Oct. 12 at 11:45 a.m. after a male student suspect apparently skated into the Technology building, Farmer said.

A security guard gestured and told the male suspect he couldn’t skateboard on campus but the skateboarder continued into the building, according to Farmer.

Security entered the building and approached the student inside a classroom where he denied having an ID.

Security informed the student that without a school ID he could not confirm being a student. The suspect then left campus.

Security later contacted the instructor, who gave the info Campus Safety needed on the suspect who turned out to be a student. The records verified he had been stopped before.

The student will receive a $15 fine and a letter to the dean of students.

Another spell

The victim, a female student, had passed out and fallen to the floor, Farmer said.

She complained of left wrist pain. and was taken to Hoag Hospital, Farmer said.

A good sign

A petty theft was reported on Oct. 9 around 10 p.m. when a suspect wearing a black hoodie allegedly stole a no-skateboard sign near the Horticulture building.

Campus security reportedly saw him removing the sign.

Farmer said the suspect took off on his bike and security followed him in a car but he ignored calls from security.

Cat fight
