On July 16 at approximately 7:50 p.m., a UI employee was walking toward her vehicle on level 1 of the Melrose Avenue Parking Facility (Hospital Ramp 4) when she saw a male attempting to remove a bumper sticker from her car. When she intervened, the suspect displayed a knife. She fled and called police who immediately checked the area but the suspect was not located.
NITE RIDE will operate on a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. schedule starting at 10 p.m. Saturday, July 1. These hours will extend into the fall semester.
Investigators have determined the cause of the fire was accidental, and that it was likely started by an idle electrical extension cord.
