A male visitor’s scuba diving lesson was cut short when he began experiencing back pains this past weekend.
At 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Public Safety arrived at the Mauer Gym in response to a call about a medical emergency. The officers met with the injured visitor. He said that while participating in a scuba instruction class offered by an off-campus group at the Coppola Pool, he heard a pop in his back and immediately began experiencing pain. The man assumed that his injury was a result of the heavy scuba gear he was wearing on his back. Public Safety then called Lawrence Township First Aid and paramedics transported the man to a nearby hospital for further examination.
On Sunday, a female resident student reported that her ID card had been stolen.
Public Safety arrived at Ziegler Hall at 4:50 p.m. and met with the student. She said that she forgot her ID in the women’s bathroom on the first floor at about 1 p.m. The student reported that she came back 30 minutes later and the ID was missing. Neither the resident advisor, nor the Ziegler Hall office had seen the ID.
Public Safety officers searched the area around the bathroom, but were unable to locate the ID card.
Public Safety was called to the Science building with a report of criminal mischief at 7:40 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13. A staff member told the officers that unknown individuals had vandalized one of the classrooms. The suspects reportedly took boxes of chalk and threw the chalk around the classroom and against the classroom walls. There were also three damaged tiles that the suspects had removed from the ceiling.
The cost of the damage is unknown and the investigation is ongoing. If anyone has further information on this incident please contact Public Safety at x5029.
