2) March 2006 Campus Crime Summary:

ROBBERY: On March 1st, 2006, a non-WSU teenager, participating in a robotics competition at the Matthaei building, reported he was the victim of a Robbery Not Armed. According to the victim, another non-WSU teenager snatched a portable play station from the victims hands while he was playing with it. Officers at the scene located the perpetrator, still inside the building, and arrested him. The 14 year old offender was transported to the Wayne County Youth Home. His case is pending.

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT: On March 8, 2006, a WSU student reported he was walking in the parking lot behind the University Towers apartments when he was struck in the neck with a plastic pellet gun. The student, who was not injured, turned and saw a handgun pointing out of an upper floor window. Responding Officers also observed the handgun being pointed out the same window. Officers went to the corresponding apartment and talked to the residents who admitted to shooting an Airsoft pellet gun out the window. Officers confiscated the pellet gun from the apartments freezer. No criminal prosecution was sought, however an administrative case, under the WSU Student Code of Conduct, is proceeding through the Dean of Students Office.
On March 14, 2006, the staff at the University Psychiatric Center (2751 E. Jefferson) reported that a subject was outside in the parking lot threatening to kill the staff members, although no weapons were seen. Responding officers found the subject and his vehicle gone on their arrival. However, the license plate number, obtained by a witness, provided Officers with the subjects address. The Officers then went to the address, in the 300 block of E. Grand Boulevard where they located the subject and arrested him. No weapons were found.

BURGLARY: Five incidents of Burglary, Attempted Burglary, or Entry Without Force, were reported during March 2006. The campus buildings involved were: Prentis building (2 incidents), State Hall (2 incidents -with one juvenile taken into custody in one incident and one non-WSU adult arrested inside the building in the second incident) and South Residence Hall.

LARCENY: A total of thirty-five incidents of larceny (theft of unattended property) were reported during March 2006. Of those, 24 occurred in 17 different campus buildings. Building with the highest Larceny rate were the Undergraduate Library with 5 incidents and Manoogian, Science Library, Fitness Center, State Hall and Ghafari Hall all tied with 2 incidents each.
NOTE: Lost or stolen debit and/or credit cards are becoming increasingly popular with thieves for use at "pay-at-the-pump" gas stations. In one recent case a student learned that her stolen debit and credit cards had been used at nine different gas stations before she could even make a police report.

VEHICLE THEFT: Two vehicle were reported stolen from WSU Parking facilities during March 2006. In the first incident, a 1998 Dodge Stratus 4 door was taken from the rear of 4500 Cass (Lot 72) between March 15th and March 19th. On March 24th, a 1999 Dodge Ram pick-up was taken from WSU Lot 40 at the front of the Matthaei building.

Near campus vehicle thefts, reported to WSUPD, during March 2006:

March 3rd S Lodge SD near Merrick 1988 GMC pick-up
March 4th Prentis west of Cass 1985 Chevrolet Caprice 4 dr
March 8th 3rd at W Forest 2003 Jeep Liberty
March 9th Second at W Warren 1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport
March 9th John R at E. Warren 2005 Dodge Durango
March 11th W. Canfield at Woodward 1997 Plymouth Voyager
March 14th Rear of 444 Prentis 1991 Chrysler LeBaron

March 21st East of 459 Prentis 1999 Ford Taurus 4 dr
March 30th E. Ferry at John R 1997 Plymouth Voyager
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ---------------

3) Physical Assault Alert:

A 19 year old WSU male student reports he left Harry's Bar (2482 Clifford) at about 1:30am recently, when he and four friends were 'jumped' by approximately 15 black males. The victim student states he was beaten multiple times about the face and head, suffering two black eyes and soreness to his head and neck. No property was taken and the motive of the assault is unclear.
WSU students (male or female) who frequent Harry's Bar (or any drinking establishment) need to understand that if they leave "under the influence" they may be setting themselves up as a victim of a physical assault, sexual assault, robbery or abduction. Intoxicated persons, as pedestrians, also risk injury from falls or walking into the paths of oncoming vehicles. Intoxicated drivers face severe penalties if caught driving under the influence.
Recently, an under age male WSU student and campus resident, while returning from Harry's Bar early one morning, drove into a parked vehicle while trying to park his own car in a university parking lot. After failing field sobriety tests and blowing over .25 on a PBT, the student was arrested for drunk driving and MIP ticketed for having alcohol in his system. He now faces multiple court appearances, attorney fees, days lost from work and school, monetary fines and penalties, not to mention the increased car insurance premiums and possible suspension of his drivers license. Is it worth it?
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ---------------

4) Found Cash:

During March, a sizable sum of money was found in a WSU building and turned in to WSUPD. To date, no one has come forward to claim the cash.
If you, or someone you know, lost a large sum of money on campus, please contact the WSU Police Investigations Section, Investigator Karoly at 313-577-2054. Be prepared to state the amount of money money was lost, the exact denominations of the bills and a description of the container the money was located in. If the money is not claimed within 90 days, it will be turned over to the finder.

The Harry's Bar incident is very alarming. Jumped by FIFTEEN guys? I can't help but think this might have been a racially-motivated attack.

The corner where Harry's is, is very shitty. Next months should have my friends who were held at gunpoint at Warren and Trumbull and the hold up on Avery. Oh Poor Detroit, why must this scum pollute our streets.

It's not the crackhead's fault, it's the government that supplies the crack to pollute our streets.

Once again, Chrysler model vehicles constitute almost all vehicles stolen in that area. It sucks, but people keep learning the hard way. Also, what's up with Harry's? Don't they check IDs?

You beat me to it!

Anyways, I'm not sure if there are any solutions to reducing the crime in Midtown, but it needs to be reduced if this area wants to be taken seriously. It seems if a few apartment buildings were to be shut down as well as a couple of liquor stores the area would be alot better. And I don't mean to kick out the poor people but from the stories on here it seems there are some building and businesses that seem to harness or breed criminal activity. I am also really surprised that WSU doesn't step in more to make the area more livable and walkable through out the day and night. Plus it could be a nice PR campaign for more and more people to live in the area close to campus. Crime will happen anywhere and everywhere,I know, but it seems it needs to be reduced in this area.

I remember on Thursday nights a few years ago the Post Bar wouldn't check IDs because the owner wouldn't be there or some shit, so all the underage WSU students would go there to drink. I doubt it's still like that.

All it takes is for one drunken underage college kid to stumble out of Harry's and into his car and run over some pedestrian on the way home, and Harry's Bar would be fucked for serving him the liquor. That's why you don't serve to underage kids, because they are stupid and the bar owner will pay the price for their stupidity if something happens.

i feel bad for these kids exposed to this prevalence of crime.

I guess those are the things you gotta put up with when you choose to go to school in inner city Detroit.

Anybody know if he was buried in Mt. Elliot Cemetery? On my way back from Belle Isle handball today, I was driving by there around 1 PM when a funeral procession led by four or five white stretch limousines came down Mt. Elliot and turned in its famous gate. No police escort.

The WSU Police force is doing a EXCELLENT job of stopping the perps from being out of the street doing something that they NOT suppose to do. Keep it up.

Here's my other tip next time you buy a car DON'T BUY ANY DODGE, CHRYSLER, JEEP vehicles until they makes some arrangments on those doors. Thieves can easily pick the locks of the door, disable the electronics off alarms and hotwire the ignition within 60 seconds. Even a child can break those car door locks and get in within 60 seconds by using a small plastic card.

The jumping incident involving 4 white hip cool skinny white kids against 15 tough medium build African American males from Harry's bar was a selected organized crime not race or gang related. This what happens if Detroit is suffering from a 14% unemployment hike and 34% poverty rate. The old bashing phrase "WE HOPE YOU SURIVIVE!!" proves useful to suburbanites and crooked to Detroiters. But the everyday violent urban crime s NOT going to keep white-folks and any other ethnic peoples from comming to Detroit. They'll keep comming and they'll be ready from the comming black and white problems.

MSU does - it's harder to find and a tad bit more confusing because the University police release a report as does the city of East Lansing. I know the city releases it monthly, and I think the University releases it per semester.

Danny, did you mean to say "perps" or "preps" and out "of the streets" or "on the streets" ? It makes a world of difference, just trying to figure out what you're saying.

Nice how Wayne State adds the part advising against walking home intoxicated. Maybe they should instead advise the preps to get all coked up so that they might actually have a chance when they try to fight off the 15 perps.

This is really sad...

just tonight at the Cass Cafe, a girl was assaulted while in the ladies room. Someone came in the back door (a male) and went right in the ladies room asking if she wanted or had some drugs. She didn't and tried to get out of the bathroom but the perp pulled her back in and started assaulting her...she screamed and he left...everyone in the cafe was shocked and really didn't know how to respond...i think she's all right...

i have also been grabbed by a vagrant...however this is what happens when the governor (Engler) closes all the state mental health institutions...damn shame...damn shame...

...a lot of the homeless and drugs addicts on the streets were once mental health patients...now released after the shut downs, with no follow up or supervision...my aunt who use to work for mental health recognizes the majority of them because they use to be her patients.

here's a solution for those proletarians, GIVE THEM FOOD, GIVE THEM HOUSING, GIVE THEM MENTAL HEATH CARE, GIVE THEM MONEY, GIVE THEM JOBS. Otherwise they will be out in the street looking for some juicy victims to eat.
