Possible assault on campus

At 8:45 a.m April 8, the Oakland University Police Department was alerted to a possible assault.

Two men exited a SMART bus at the university’s roundabout, and the male who was first to leave the bus was a student. The male who followed behind him was a faculty member.

The faculty member stated the student began to hassle him, and pulled out a gun-shaped mace canister.  The faculty member then ran away and called OUPD.

OUPD found the student and he was correctly identified.

The student was arrested and OUPD is currently seeking a warrant.

A student parked in Parking Lot 1. Upon her return, she found her car had been keyed.

Both sides of the car had been scratched from the headlight to the taillight.
