“I feel very scared” and “I feel threatened by him” were two phrases a professor told Campus Police officers when they arrived to a conference room in Loser Hall at 1:47 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 1.

A male student in a white T-shirt refused to leave a private, closed-door seminar, and then lingered in the stairwell, police said.

When officers approached the male, he refused to leave. Officers told him why he was unable to stay, and he had to exit the building until the class ended, according to reports.

When a male student arrived at the Campus Police Department at 9:05 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 28, to retrieve his backpack that had been found on the Green Lane fields, he was subsequently placed under arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to reports, a multicolored glass pipe, believed to be used to smoke marijuana, was found in the knapsack, and the student admitted it belonged to him. He received a summons from Ewing Township for drug paraphernalia with intent to use.

On Tuesday, Feb. 1, an unconscious female was reported to be in the first floor bathroom of Ely Hall. When officers arrived at 1:10 a.m., they found her, smelling like a combination of alcohol and vomit, talking to the building’s ARD.

According to reports, she stated she had consumed some shots of gin. Lions EMS arrived and evaluated her, as did Pennington Road EMS.

The female’s friend was found in the hallway outside her room in Ely with another male student. The pair smelled like alcohol and when asked if they also drank gin, they both said yes. Upon entering the dorm room, another male was sitting on a bed, who admitted to having one shot of gin, police said.

All four students were issued summonses.

On Saturday, Jan. 28, an intoxicated male was found smelling like alcohol and slurring his speech at 3:35 a.m. in Wolfe Hall, reports said.

The student vomited several times before officers arrived on the scene. Lions EMS arrived, followed by Pennington Road EMS who transported him to Capital Health Systems at Mercer.

A Wolfe Hall resident told officers that he checked his bank account on Monday, Jan. 31 and discovered a negative balance.

The male had contacted his bank to report the discrepancy and was told that an online purchase was attempted using his debit card information. The purchase was valued at $431 and occurred between 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 30 to 6 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 31. He was advised by his bank that the purchases were not approved.
