Police Files: March 20, 2019

Ugg, that hurt

A female student walked into the Oakland University Police Department to report she slipped and fell on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019. She stated she was walking south on the sidewalk between Pioneer Road and parking structure P29, slipped on ice and fell onto her rear end and back. She also stated her right foot was injured in the fall.

The officer on duty asked her how badly she was injured, and she commented that she was sore and “getting worse,” at which point the officer asked her if she needed Emergency Medical Services called. She stated her injuries were not bad enough to require an ambulance.

The officer noted the student was wearing Ugg style boots with minimal tread. The report noted that the sidewalks had salt in areas, but some had been washed away by rain followed by a drop in temperature, creating icy conditions. The officer advised the student to report the injury to her supervisor at her earliest convenience. The student left with nothing further to report.

Missing wallet

An officer met with a student in the Oak View Hall lobby for a larceny report on the afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019. The student said she was unable to locate her wallet after moving back into her dorm in Oak View. She checked out a rolling bin from the desk at approximately 3 p.m. and believed she may have left her wallet in it when she returned the bin.

The desk staff stated the bin was empty when it was returned. The student checked her room, car and surrounding parking lot area for it. She stated the wallet contained credit cards and approximately $200 in gift cards to JCPenney and Bed Bath & Beyond.

The officer checked the sidewalks around the building and trash cans in the area. The officer also called the six people listed as checking out bins after the student, though none of them reported seeing a wallet. No suspect was found, and the student cancelled her credit cards in response to the larceny.
