Police responded to reports of burglary, theft and sexual assault over the past week, according to daily crime logs.

 

Burglary

Prince George’s County Police are investigating a burglary after a female student awoke to a noise and found a male at the foot of her bed Sunday morning.

The incident occurred in the 4200 block of Knox Road, and University Police were contacted at about 12:20 p.m., according to a UMD Alert. The male ran out of the student’s room after she woke up, according to the alert.

Prince George’s County Police Cpl. Nicholas Clayton said he couldn’t provide any additional information or comment.

Theft

Police responded to two reports of theft on Nov. 11.

At about 11 a.m., a student reported to police that her wallet had been stolen three days before at Hornbake Library, police spokesperson Sgt. Rosanne Hoaas wrote in an email. The student said an unauthorized transaction had been charged to her debit card.

Later, at about 4 p.m., police responded to Van Munching Hall for a reported bicycle theft, Hoaas wrote. A female student reported that her bike — which was secured to a rack with a cable lock — had been stolen earlier that day.

Both cases are active.

Sexual assault and Title IX incident

A female student reported a rape to police on Tuesday, Hoaas wrote. The suspect is a male with no affiliation to the university, and the parties know each other, she added.

On Wednesday, police responded to the University Health Center for a report from a female student of a non-criminal Title IX incident that happened off-campus, Hoaas wrote. Police explained the student’s options regarding a criminal investigation.

Both cases are active.
