Break-in at Senior House

An as-yet unidentified suspect broke into Senior House around midnight the morning of August 3, according to a campus-wide email.

“An unknown suspect broke a second floor window...and gained access to the building,” Sergeant Andrew J. Turco wrote. “Dorm patrol discovered the broken glass and called after the intruder,” who fled toward Ames Street.

Police have found evidence that the suspect suffered a “large laceration” and located a camouflage backpack, a field shovel, a canteen, and dirty clothing in Senior House.

Turco suggested that community members lock doors and windows, document serial numbers of electronics, and report suspicious activity to the police.
