Crime Log

Assault on Police
9/25 – Thurston Hall – case closed
A UPD officer was bitten and another officer injured when they responded to two male injured students. One of the students, who was bleeding from the back of the head, told UPD he had been drinking and smoking marijuana. EMeRG. was unable to provide medical assistance because the student was too combative. When D.C. Emergency Medical Services arrived, they took the handcuffed individual, restrained him to the stretcher and took him to the GW Hospital emergency room. UPD later discovered that the individual received his injury as a result of throwing himself into a wall. Both UPD officers went to the hospital for treatment and were later released. The officer who was bitten plans to press criminal charges.
