May 28, 2015

Campus Watch: Below is a summary of campus activity reported to or observed by The University Police Department Patrol Officers between Wednesday, 05/27/15 and Thursday, 05/28/15.


Criminal Mischief: A non-UT subject reported damage to the driver’s side door handle of his 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche. While there was no evidence to suggest someone entered the parked vehicle, the door handle was no longer working properly. Repair cost: $100.00. Occurred between 05/26/15 at 11:00 PM and 05/27/15 at 8:30 AM.

JESTER WEST, 201 East 21st Street

Criminal Trespass: A UT contracted employee reported seeing a subject running at “full speed” into exterior walls in the Jester Courtyard. Responding Officers found the subject lying on the ground with his legs propped up on a picnic table. The subject was not injured but was found to have previously been issued a written criminal trespass warning. The subject stated he was aware he had said warning and was aware he was on the campus. The subject is now aware that a prior warning means he was subject to arrest for criminal trespass. Occurred on 05/27/15 at 9:19 AM.

JESTER ACADEMIC, 201 East 21st Street

False Report / Criminal Trespass Warning: A non-UT subject approached officers near the Jester Academic Center and confessed to activating a fire alarm pull station at that building several hours earlier. The subject indicated he activated the fire alarm because he was “afraid people were after him” and he wanted police to respond to the building. There was no evidence of the subject being followed by anyone. The subject complained of pain to his ankle. Austin-Travis County EMS responded and provided the subject with a ride to a local hospital but only after the subject was issued a written criminal trespass warning. Occurred on 05/28/15 at 3:40 AM.

MAIN BUILDING, 110 Inner Campus Drive

Harassment: A non-UT subject, who wanted a personal relationship with a UT staff member, has sent several unwanted text messages, phone calls and e-mails to the staff member’s phone and e-mail address. Occurred between April of 2014 and May of 2015.

The University of Texas Police Department responded to 20 Alarm Reports, 1 Fire Alarm Activation, 2 Suspicious Activity Reports, 3 Traffic Violations, 3 Motor Vehicle Collisions, 2 Unsecured Door Reports and 4 Public Assist Requests between 05/27/15 and 05/28/15.
