The following reports were taken from the Boston University Police Department crime logs from April 16 to April 21.
On Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. a male student was reported for sending harassing emails to a BU student and her family. The male student reportedly proposed marriage to the female and she declined, prompting a stream of harassing messages. BUPD officials are still investigating the incident.
Turn theft up ahead
A locked car was broken into at 100 Ashford St. on Tuesday at about 6:15 p.m. The car was left parked and unattended and an unknown suspect broke into the driver side window and stole the GPS device before the car’s owner returned.
Attempted breaking and entering
At about 12 a.m. on Wednesday, a female student reported that an unknown male tried to enter through her balcony window at 171 Bay State Road. Upon seeing him, she screamed and fled the room immediately. The male successfully climbed onto her balcony, but was unable to enter the room because the window was locked.
On Saturday at 12:42 p.m., a student reported receiving a strange Facebook message from another student while at 33 Harry Agganis Way. The message was in the form of a haiku and ended with a threat to blow up the school. The BUPD was unable to determine that the student in question was going to follow through with the threat, so she was not further prosecuted.
A shoplifter was caught stealing a sweatshirt and t-shirt from the BU Barnes & Noble located at 660 Beacon St. on Saturday. Additionally, upon further investigation, authorities discovered the suspect had also stolen Rogaine, a Boston Red Sox hat, two pairs of headphones, a watch and gold earrings from a Rite Aid Pharmacy.
