Crime Blotter

Further arrest

The aftermath of a disturbance at Montgomery Hall in the early morning of March 20 produced a further arrest April 16.

Matthew C. Lindsey, 25, was arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor and theft by receiving stolen property.

Officers had been called to the hall about 3:30 a.m. March 20 with reports of a man with a knife in the lobby. Officers discovered the lobby populated with people, none of whom had legitimate access to the hall but a couple of them had keys to one of the rooms.

During questioning, a female advised officers that the room for which the keys were found contained the fruits of car prowls throughout the downtown. Portland police sent detectives who broke into the room with campus police.

In connection with the incident, several arrests were made.

Lindsey, who was the tenant of the room to which the keys had been distributed, visited campus police April 11. He agreed to discuss the incident. Officers pointed out the room had contained methamphetamine paraphernalia in a plastic jug on the top shelf of a closet.

They also identified a scanner and color printer in the apartment as previously reported stolen. Lindsey said he had received the stolen goods from another unspecified person.

He was arrested on the two charges and transported by Portland police to the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Angry husband

A female student reported to campus police her husband had pushed her and shoved her to the floor outside the child care center in Smith Memorial Center about 3 p.m. April 10.

She told officers she had left home with her child to come to school and had placed the child in the day care center. The husband appeared and demanded the child be delivered to him. When she declined, he assaulted her, inflicting bruises and abrasions on her arms and wrists.

The woman told officer she was concerned for his safety, since when he left he told her he was going to kill himself.

Officers advised her of her options and she said she was considering seeking a restraining order.

Bike lifted

A bicycle valued at $345 was taken from outside the University Center building about 11 a.m. April 10.

The owner had secured it with a lock attached to the bike frame against a parking meter.

Beer confiscated

Campus officers confiscated beer being drunk by students in the Smith Memorial Center ballroom at about 4:15 p.m. April 15.

The officers intersected a special event sponsored by Students for Unity. The event had been scheduled to end at 4:30 p.m.

Campus police discovered the imbibing while on a walk-by patrol and reported a large number of students drinking cans and bottles of beer inside the ballroom.
