There were 24 thefts reported on Ohio State’s campus this week from Sept. 25 to Wednesday. One incident resulted in an arrest.

A 33-year-old man not affiliated with OSU was arrested for attempting to steal two pairs of football earrings valued at $8 each and two pairs of OSU logo earrings valued at $16 each from the Scarlet Ribbon Gift Shop located at the Wexner Medical Center, according to a University Police report.

Of the 22 total thefts, one incident was a theft of an automobile from the Carmack Lot 5. Investigation into the event is pending. In addition, 12 of the 22 reports were thefts of bicycles.

A female student reported aggravated menacing near High Street and 16th Avenue after a woman verbally harassed her. The alleged violator was white, dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, black sunglasses and black loose-fitting pants, carrying a fuschia pink backpack. The student also described the woman as looking like an “old hag” or drug user. The woman might have been carrying a knife, according to a University Police report. Police officers checked the area but did not find the woman.
