An unknown person kicked in the door of a room in La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland Ave., sometime before midnight Sunday, reports stated.
A resident in the hall went to the room of two students who are cousins and immediately noticed the door was open, reports stated.
The student knocked on the door and looked inside and neither of the cousins was there, reports stated.
Upon closer inspection he noticed the door was splintered under the exterior doorknob and in the doorjamb and appeared as if the door had been kicked in, reports stated.
The student told police he contacted one of the cousins and told him of the damage. The cousin was able to determine over the phone that nothing obvious had been stolen from the room from what the student told him, reports stated.
It was impossible to determine no theft had occurred without either cousin present, reports stated.
Police did not speak with the cousins because of the late hour. Police took photos of the damage and placed into evidence, reports stated.
Police found similar damage to at least two other rooms in the hall, reports stated.
Police have no suspects or witnesses.
