The suspect got out of the vehicle and asked the parties for $40 which they replied that they didn’t have, and then the suspect took a biology packet and ran off. One of the victims attempted to chase down the suspect who further began to assault the victim with the help of a passenger in the vehicle. Officers were able to make contact with the suspect at 720 Oak St., and upon arrival the officers asked for the suspect’s side to which he advised he was just trying to collect a debt, but was very evasive. The officers noticed marijuana in the apartment and that the suspect was under the influence. The suspect was charged with two accounts of assault, reckless endangerment, theft of property, simple possession of marijuana and underage possession of alcohol.

The officers were given consent to entry and escorted the suspect to UTCPD in reference to an “interim suspension” letter from student affairs.

The party advised their department had done business previously with the vendor but decided to no longer use them. From late Sept. to early Oct., the vendor repeatedly contacted the victim via landline, cell phone and email. The victim advised that he was never threatened by the suspect but feared he would come to campus looking for him. The officer contacted the suspect and explained there was no further need for contact and was trespassed from campus.
