On Jan. 16 at 3:15 a.m., Emory Police Department (EPD) responded to Clairmont Campus in reference to a report of assault. The victim, a male visitor, sustained multiple visible injuries to his head as well as lacerations to his neck. He also had dried blood on his hands and a swollen left ear. Due to a language barrier, the EPD officer could not ascertain the details of what happened to him. The complainant, a female Emory student, said the visitor is her cousin, who came to visit her with one of his acquaintances who is unknown to her. The two visitors stayed in her room to rest for the night because they were both intoxicated. The student said she awoke to her cousin and his acquaintance fighting in her apartment. The complainant could not recall what the unknown subject was wearing, but she described him as a 5-foot-7 white male with dark hair and a long face. She said the subject fled before EPD officers arrived. The case is under active investigation.
On Jan. 16 at 12:33 p.m., EPD received a fraud report via telephone. The complainant, a female Emory student, said that she had signed up for a website to try to obtain some modeling jobs. She said that she received an email from someone who claimed to be a photographer. The email address that the subject emailed her from was [email protected]. The email stated that the photographer had seen her pictures on the website and that the photographer was interested in setting up a photo shoot. The student exchanged several emails with this person and provided personal information including her on-campus address and body measurements. The complainant said that on Jan. 10, she received two checks from the photographer by mail in an envelope with a Florida return address. Both of the checks were drawn on Arizona Federal Credit Union and were for $985.50 each. The photographer told the student to keep $400 for herself and to send the remaining money via money orders to a party at a Florida post office box. The photographer said to send three $500 money orders and one $50 money order. The student deposited the checks on Jan. 10 and sent the four money orders via the U.S. Postal Service two days later. On Jan. 16 at approximately 8 a.m., the student noticed that all three checks bounced, leaving her bank account in the negative. Campus Life was notified about the incident.
On Jan. 17 at 2:05 p.m, EPD responded to Emory University Hospital in reference to a report of public indecency. The complainant, a patient, said that on Jan. 15 between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., the subject, a respiratory therapist, entered her room to administer a breathing treatment. The patient said that while the subject was in the room, he untied his pants and began to lower them. She said that the subject lowered his pants far enough to expose his pubic hair and a portion of his penis. She said that the subject left the room when she began to call the charge nurse. The EPD officer was informed that it is the intention of hospital administration to place the subject on administrative leave pending investigation of the incident. The case is under active investigation.
On Jan. 17 at 2:48 p.m, EPD responded to Haygood Hall at Oxford College in reference to a report of marijuana possession. One of the complainants, a resident adviser (RA), said that when she was walking the hallways of Haygood Hall on the second floor at around 2:19 p.m., she smelled marijuana coming from a student’s room. She then notified the second complainant, an on-call Residence Life coordinator (RLC), who responded to the room to investigate with her. They said that the resident and her friend admitted that they were smoking marijuana. After calling EPD, the RA and RLC also discovered several different types of empty alcoholic beverage bottles in the room. The EPD officer seized one plastic bag containing less than one ounce of a dark leafy green substance, a green canister containing the same substance and one clear glass smoking pipe. Campus Life was notified about the incident.
On Jan. 18 at 7:45 a.m., EPD responded to Emory Point in reference to a report of dispute. The complainant, a store shift manager, told EPD officers that she had just terminated an employee and the employee was refusing to leave the property. Upon arrival, the EPD officer observed the subject sitting in her vehicle outside the property. The former employee stated she had just bought a pair of pants from the location where she worked and did not receive either the item or her subsequent request for a refund of the item she did not receive. With further investigation, the manager told the EPD officer that the subject was always irate, which made customers feel uncomfortable. She stated that she terminated the subject, and she gave the EPD officer the aforementioned item, which the EPD officer then gave to the subject. The subject then left the property in her vehicle. At approximately 8:30 a.m., the manager called EPD to report harassing communications. She stated that after the subject left the scene at 8:27 a.m., she texted the manager, “B***h you got a death wish. I hope your f**king organs fail. I’ll buy that b***h hoe. Better hope I don’t see you lol.” The manager stated that after that message was sent, she blocked the subject’s number. The EPD officer advised her that any other harassing communications from the subject should be reported to the police and that she could apply for a restraining order with the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. This case has been closed.
