Sibling rivals

A female student had been struck by her brother twice in the back of her head in the Art Center Parking Lot at about 8:25 a.m. on Nov. 19, Chief of Campus Safety Jim Rudy said.

According to Rudy, they were arguing when the brother became upset and struck her with a closed fist.

The female student called the Costa Mesa Police Department and the male struck her again with a closed fist on the right side of her face, Rudy said.

According to Rudy, the police responded and the male was located later in the day and arrested. Rudy said he was not an Orange Coast College student.


A male student reported that his backpack was stolen on Nov. 8 at 3 p.m. in the locker room, Rudy said.  

According to Rudy, the student left the backpack while he was taking a shower.  

The student didn’t provide a description of the backpack at the time of the report, Rudy said.

Empty theft

According to Rudy, a vending machine had been pried open outside of Robert B. Moore Theatre between 9 p.m. Nov. 16 and 1:25 p.m. the next day.

The coin box was thrown to the side but no snacks were stolen, Rudy said.

Campus Safety contacted the vending machine company who said that no cash was stolen.

Call my mommy
