Crime Brief: Animal cruelty, robbery, assault reported on campus

A female student reported about $600 in cash stolen from the office of Dynamic Contrast, an Ohio State a capella group, in the Ohio Union Saturday. The incident was reported Monday at about 1 p.m. but occurred between June 1 and Oct. 14.

Overall, 14 thefts were reported on OSU’s campus this week from March 19 to Wednesday.

A resident adviser at a South Campus dorm reported an assault Friday just before midnight, after several female residents said a 19-year-old woman who was visiting OSU “had been slapped multiple times in the face,” according to a University Police report.

The male suspect was allegedly under the influence of alcohol and was in a romantic relationship with the woman, who had been staying with him since March 15. Officers found both individuals in the dorm. The female said she was fine and did not wish to press charges. The male suspect was referred to Student Conduct.

A male staff member reported cruelty to animals after discovering eight cats left in a vehicle unattended in the 12th Avenue parking garage March 20.

Officers discovered that the cats belonged to a terminal cancer patient who had been receiving treatment at the Wexner Medical Center. The patient’s son came to the garage every day to take care of the cats. The cats had food and water and appeared to be in “fair condition.” The main concern was the cats being “in a confined area with no way to move around,” according to a University Police report.

The cat’s owner did not want to surrender the animals to the Capital Area Humane Society but agreed to work with an agent to find a permanent living arrangement for the cats.

Three individuals not affiliated with OSU were arrested for OVI this week.

A 30-year-old man was arrested for driving while under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident near Lane Avenue and Fyffe Road Saturday at about 4 a.m.

The day before, a 42-year-old man was arrested for OVI near Woody Hayes and John Herrick drives at about 4:30 a.m.

A 20-year-old man was arrested for OVI and offenses involving underage persons near College and West 18th avenues at about 9:20 p.m. Friday.

In addition, there were 7 reports of disorderly conduct this week with one resulting in an arrest.

A 21-year-old woman not affiliated with OSU was arrested for disorderly conduct near the Neil Avenue parking garage Sunday.
