Two accounts of sexual impositions were reported on Ohio State’s campus this week.

The first incident reportedly occurred Jan. 22 at University Hospitals East, located at 1492 E.

The woman reported the incident but did not want to file any charges. The case is closed, according to a University Police report.

The second incident was reported Saturday but occurred between Jan. 16 and Jan. 18. A 48-year-old female non-affiliate reported sexual imposition at Postle Hall, located at 305 W. 12th Ave., by a known suspect. Investigation into the case is pending, according to a University Police report.

There were 19 total thefts reported on OSU’s campus this week from Jan. 22 to Wednesday.

A 52-year-old man not affiliated with OSU was arrested for receiving stolen property at Hamilton Hall Jan. 23 at about 2:30 p.m. Property related to the incident included a Macbook Air laptop, an iPhone and a black backpack with its contents, including a wallet, headphones and keys. The stolen property was valued at more than $2,400 and was all recovered.

Of the other thefts, one incident was a theft of a bicycle at Taylor Tower. Three incidents were thefts from automobiles, which occurred at the northwest stadium lot, the polo field lots and near the intersection of Highland and 10th avenues.
