Three burglaries within two weeks at the same fraternity house cost victims an estimated $3,360 in electronic equipment.

Two of the burglaries at Alpha Epsilon Pi, 1500 block of North Vine Avenue, occurred in the same room on the third floor. The first victim told police his room was locked on August 13 for two days. The man's roommate told police his belongings were stolen sometime between Aug. 15-16.

Entry for the second burglary was gained by breaking a patio door window.

The third burglary occurred Friday when a fraternity member left his tape recorder, two speakers and seven compact discs in the fraternity's "brotherhood lounge" for nine hours.

The stolen items included stereo equipment, a television, an air conditioner unit, a cable box and other items too numerous to name.


A woman's pickup was pelted with eggs, rocks, keyed and spray painted Saturday in a university parking garage on North Campbell Avenue.

"BK" was spraypainted in white on the tailgate of the car.

University Medical Center security reported a phone caller who said two females in a white pickup damaged the vehicle at about 5:48 p.m. The victim told police one of the women might be a former friend who did not like the victim's boyfriend.

The victim told police she was visiting her boyfriend who was admitted to the hospital for gunshot wounds.


A woman was assaulted without injury at the main library late Monday by an unknown man who wanted to kiss her.

The victim told police she was studying on the fifth floor when she saw a man looking at her from the other side of the bookshelves. After a half hour of staring, the man introduced himself and asked if he could kiss her.

When the victim refused, the man reportedly returned to put his hand on her knee and ask to kiss her several more times.

The victim saw the man later as she was leaving the library and hid in a women's restroom until he was gone. Then the woman said the man followed her from the library lobby to the Chemistry Building.

Police have no suspects.


A 37-year-old man was arrested late Sunday for driving under the influence of alcohol near the intersection of East Speedway Boulevard and North Campbell Avenue.

Police are seeking charges of driving under the influence against Robert M. Dikinis, 9700 block of Sellarole. Dikinis was arrested and released after police saw him speeding and swerving as he drove east on Speedway.


Two men were arrested early Monday for public consumption in the 1300 block of East Speedway Boulevard.

Police are seeking charges against Daniel J. Truex, 27, of the 1800 block of East Speedway Boulevard and Scott A. Stumbris, 29, of the same address. Police reportedly saw them walk west on the sidewalk drinking from beer cans, while Stumbris held a partly filled 12-pack of beer.
