Out the window
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a Rider student.
On Sunday at about 5:21 a.m., a male RA in Hill Hall reported to Public Safety that he witnessed a student jumping out of a third floor window onto one of the lounge roofs. After arriving, Public Safety officers noticed several individuals wandering around the building and were able to identify the individual in question.
When asked about jumping out of a window, the suspect initially denied it, but then admitted to jumping. He claimed to have dropped his wallet out of his window and seen it land on the roof. He attempted to climb up the wall to retrieve the wallet but after failing, resorted to his idea of jumping from his window to the lounge roof – about a 12-foot drop.
Public Safety notified an ambulance squad; however, he refused further medical treatment. The student was charged with reckless endangerment and the matter has been referred to the office of community standards.
One of the men’s bathrooms on the first floor of Memorial Hall received an unwelcome makeover on Sunday.
At about 9 a.m. a male visitor notified Public Safety that there was offensive language and drawings on the bathroom walls, as well as on the partitions for each stall. Public Safety reported the vandalism and contacted cleaners to remove the distasteful artwork. The investigation is continuing.
If anyone has information on who is responsible, please contact Public Safety at x5029.
