Tuesday, Dec. 1
7:15 p.m.
A student called the Northeastern University Division of Public Safety (NUPD) to report his wallet was stolen from a locker on the third floor of Squashbusters between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. The wallet contained about $120.

8 p.m.
A student reported he left his laptop, backpack and books on the fourth floor of Snell Library for 10 minutes and when he returned, his laptop was gone. A student studying nearby said she saw a man walk over to the table and take the laptop, and said she would recognize the man if she saw him again. At 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3 the female called NUPD to report she saw the same man in Snell Library working on a laptop. Officers questioned the 30-year-old, who has no affiliation to the university, and determined that the laptop was not the one stolen two days before but escorted the man off campus because he had previously been banned.

Wednesday, Dec. 2
10:45 a.m.
The manager of Wollaston’s in the Marino Center called NUPD to report a 17-year-old high school student shoplifting. The manager chose not to press criminal charges but the student was banned from both Wollaston’s and campus.

10 p.m.
NUPD received a call reporting a man and woman arguing loudly outside International Village. An officer responded and learned the two were husband and wife, neither with any connection to the university. The husband left the area when asked to by the officer, but then approached the wife as the officer escorted her to a bus at the Ruggles T station. The husband would not leave the area and kept trying to make contact with his wife. NUPD arrested the husband, 39-year-old Angel Sanchez, for disorderly conduct, with the assistance of the Transit Police.

Thursday, Dec. 3
1:30 a.m.
A student walking on Hemenway Street approached an officer and reported about 20 minutes before he was robbed of his cell phone and wallet by three men near Queensberry Street. The student said he did not want to file a formal police report with the Boston Police Department (BPD).

6:30 p.m.

NUPD was called to Forsyth Street outside the Marino Center for an incident of road rage. An alumna started to pull into a parking space on Forsyth Street when a student ran up to her car and began yelling profanities, telling her not to park there. When a student walking past tried to intervene in the argument, the other student turned his anger on the passer-by. He told officers he had been waiting for an hour and a half for a space to open up on the street. Officers told him yelling at the woman was not the appropriate way of dealing with the situation. He will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution (OSCCR).

Friday, Dec. 4
8 p.m.
A resident of 10 Coventry St. reported she thought there was a man looking into her window from the alley behind the building. Officers checked the alley and did not find anyone, but reset the alley’s light timer so the light would turn on earlier in the evening. Officers spoke with several residents and advised them to check their window locks and to pull their shades up at night.

Saturday, Dec. 5

6 a.m.
While going through a lost wallet to determine the owner, an NUPD dispatcher found two IDs, one for a 19-year-old female student and one for a 22-year-old female who looked similar to the 19-year-old. The owner of the wallet will be reported to OSCCR.

6:30 p.m.
BPD called NUPD to ask for assistance with a large group of college-aged people going from house to house and drinking in the streets wearing similar T-shirts promoting an event. Most of the people stopped were not Northeastern students. Officers also responded to a party at 139 St. Alphonsous St., where 12 underage students were found drinking. All 12 students will be reported to OSCCR.

Transit Police called NUPD to assist with a disorderly person on a bus at the Ruggles T station.

Officers were called to Willis Hall by a Resident Assistant (RA) who reported a student vomiting. The student was evaluated by officers and was escorted back to his Davenport Commons apartment. His host had also been drinking, but was not ill. Both students will be reported to OSCCR.

A student reported she left her backpack unattended in the Stetson East dining hall for a few minutes earlier in the afternoon and at 4 p.m. realized the wallet she had in that bag was missing. The wallet contained her license, credit card and a small amount of cash.

6:15 p.m.
An RA from International Village reported a loud argument on the seventh floor. Officers responded and spoke to the resident who said she had had a verbal argument with her non-student boyfriend. Her appearance suggested that the argument became physical, but the female denied it had. Officers located the boyfriend outside International Village and issued him a trespass ban from campus. Officers counseled the female about resources for victims of domestic abuse.

Monday, Dec. 7
3 a.m.
NUPD was called to the fourth floor of International Village to respond to a fistfight in the hallway. By the time officers arrived the parties involved in the fight had retreated into a room. Officers knocked on the door and were greeted by the 24-year-old brother of the 22-year-old male resident. Both brothers’ appearances indicated they had been in a fistfight and they would only tell officers the fight stemmed from a family dispute. Officers were concerned that the brothers would continue fighting, so NUPD arrested 22-year-old student Aaron Traeger and his 24-year-old brother, Christian Traeger, for assault and battery. Christian Traeger has been banned from campus and Aaron Traeger will be reported to OSCCR.’
