All information according to University Police.
8:24 p.m. – Patrol reported a welfare check at Red Jacket Quad after a student’s roommate could not get in contact with her. The student was supposed to meet a friend for dinner but was not answering calls. The student’s roommates were eventually able to contact her, according to patrol.
9:17 p.m. – A person reported a group of people on the roof of The Commons. They were described as wearing all black and running toward the Student Union. The group was gone when patrol arrived.
4:25 p.m. – A UB employee reported that a man named Mr. Chris emailed her UB email asking for Korean lessons for him and his daughter. She stated that the man sent her a large check agreeing to pay for the lessons but also requested that she assist in paying for their flight to Buffalo. She has not heard from the man since and believes the man has stolen approximately $1,000 from her.
8:51 p.m. – A UB student stated that he stepped away from his laptop for approximately 15 minutes and when he returned it was gone. Patrol could not track down the laptop immediately.
9:53 p.m. – A caller reported two males were standing outside Goodyear Hall by the bus stop asking for “money and handouts.” Patrol was dispatched and the subjects reported that they were looking for the university train station.
12:39 a.m. – A Flint resident adviser (RA) stated she was concerned for the welfare of a student after seeing the student’s Snapchat feed. The subject posted a video saying “This is my last goodbye” from somewhere in the Ellicott Complex. Patrol met with the subject who was escorted to a counselor.
2:06 p.m. – The interim chair of the Department of Architecture reported aggravated harassment of a staff member by an ex-UB student. The suspect was warned to have no further contact with the victim.
1:40 p.m. – Patrol received a walk-up complaint of an intoxicated man in the Alumni Arena men’s locker room. The man was described as a white male, middle-aged with gray hair and balding wearing only plaid “under shorts.” Patrol was unable to locate the man.
8:03 p.m. – ECMC police reported a UB student entered the emergency room after being harassed in Spaulding Hall on North Campus. According to Deputy Chief of Police Joshua Sticht, although the victim was in an altercation with the subject, because the victim was not injured this is being specified as harassment. Because the victim knew the subject, no UB Alert was sent out. The victim was unsure if he or she would press charges at the time and Sticht said the investigation is ongoing at this time.
