Crime brief: Trespasser accused of feeding swine at Ohio State facility

Someone might have fed the pigs at Ohio State’s swine center without permission.

A male staff member reported criminal trespassing after finding that there were buckets of feed on the ground at the swine facility on Kays Avenue in Dublin. He said an unauthorized person had fed the pigs sometime between the evening of June 29 and the next morning, according to a University Police report.

Another employee met with an officer on July 1 at the horse facility, which is also in Dublin. At the same time as the incident with the pigs, a male staff member said there were several gray buckets outside of horse stalls that were not placed there by staff. He said it didn’t seem like the buckets had been used to feed the horses, according to the report.

Staff members are working to install cameras at the facilities to go along with the “No Trespassing” signs that are already there.

There were also two reports of assault reported Monday.

The first incident took place at the OSU Wexner Medical Center James Comprehensive Cancer Center at about 1 p.m.

A female employee was at the nurses station when a patient who is receiving long-term cancer treatment came up to her and punched her twice. The punches hit her face and her temple, according to a police report, and the patient was restrained by hospital security.

The nurse did not want to press charges, but she said the patient gave her a concussion and broke her nose.

The second assault was reported in a parking garage near the Wexner Medical Center.

Officers were called to the scene and found that a man had been fighting with a caseworker and other witnesses in the area, according to a police report. His mother was with him and told police that he was developmentally disabled and there was no reason for the episode.

Witnesses told police that the man threw a few punches, but then calmed down. No one pressed charges or reported injuries.

A male staff member reported disorderly conduct early Saturday morning.

An officer at 12th Avenue and High Street found an intoxicated man who was asleep shortly before 1 a.m., according to a police report. Officers were unable to wake him, but medics woke him up and he was released without being charged.

There were five incidents involving drugs between July 1 and Tuesday and 15 reports of theft in that time.
