  • A 21-year-old Mount Pleasant man was charged with non-aggravated assault after slapping his girlfriend at the time across the face for not giving him a key to his home located on South Pine Street.
  • Two 18-year-old women in Woldt Hall were having an argument in which politically motivated comments were made. At one point during the argument, one of the students mentioned using a knife to protect herself, however, she never produced or used the weapon. Lt. Wassman of CMUPD said hall staff members temporarily moved one of the women to resolve the issue.
  • A verbal argument between two roommates in Calkins Hall became physical when a 19-year-old man punched his 18-year-old roommate in the back. The students admitted they had a history of arguments – some leading to physical altercations – but neither pressed charges.

The case has been turned over to the Office of Student Conduct and sent to the prosecutor’s office for review.
