University of Maryland Police responded to reports of an assault, a stolen motor vehicle and a suspicious person/auto over the past 10 days, among other incidents, according to police reports.


On May 5 at 3:19 p.m., police responded to a report of an assault on the 7500 block of Route 1, according to police reports. An officer met with a female student in the parking lot of the police department to talk about a domestic-related assault, said police spokesperson Sgt. Rosanne Hoaas. The female student reported to the officer that the assault was between her and a male unaffiliated with the university, Hoaas said, and no injuries were reported.

Hoaas added that the officer advised her on options for pressing charges, gave her an Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct pamphlet and referred her to the office for further guidance.

This case is closed by exception.

Stolen motor vehicle

University Police responded to the Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex at 12:03 p.m. on May 7 for a reported stolen motor vehicle, according to police reports. Hoaas said a female student reported that between May 3 at 11 a.m. and May 6 at 8:30 p.m., someone stole her scooter and metal chain at parking lot 11B.

This case is active.

Suspicious person/auto

Police responded to the 3800 block of Stadium Drive for a suspicious person/auto May 7 at 5:58 p.m., according to police reports. An officer was driving in the area of Valley Drive and Stadium Drive when a male unaffiliated with the university flagged down his police car, Hoaas said. The male told the officer he got off a bus here but was headed to Langley Park, and the officer drove him there before issuing him a full denial to campus, Hoaas said.

He was issued this denial because police had a previous interaction with him in 2015 for trespassing in an academic building, after which he was issued a full denial of access to campus, Hoaas added.

This case is closed by exception.
