A female visitor may not want to return to Rider after the theft of her cell phone last week.
On Thursday, March 24, at 1:52 p.m., Public Safety was dispatched to the ground floor of the BLC on the report of a stolen cell phone.
The visitor stated that while there, she had gone to use the restroom. After leaving the restroom, she wanted to place a call, but could not find her cell phone in her purse.
The visitor realized she had left her phone on a table outside the Rider University Bookstore, but when she went back it was gone. Public Safety checked the area and could not find it.
The cost of the cell phone was approximately $300.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact Public Safety at x. 5029.
Two female students partied a little too hard and received a trip to the hospital last weekend.
On Saturday, March 26, at 1:42 a.m., Public Safety officers were out on patrol when a male witness flagged them down. He told the officers that his friends were sick and needed assistance. He requested that the Good Samaritan law be invoked.
He said that he and his friends had picked up two female students from an off-campus party and that they were ill. The officers went to the car where the girls were located and confirmed the females’ identification. The students were transported to a nearby hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
