On Aug. 24 at 11:36 a.m., EPD received an entering auto report via telephone. The complainant, a staff member of Emory Healthcare, said her wallet was stolen from her vehicle while it was parked on the ramp of the Lowergate East parking deck. The complainant said she believed her wallet was stolen between 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 23. The complainant stated she saw no signs of forced entry or damage to her vehicle, and that the interior of her vehicle appeared to be as she left it. She received a phone call on Aug. 23 at about 2:30 p.m. from her bank after they had flagged a number of transactions on her account that they believed to be fraudulent. The complainant did not know when the transactions occurred, but stated they began after noon on Aug. 23.
On Aug. 25 at 11:21 a.m., EPD met with an Emory student in reference to a stolen wallet and dorm key.

On Aug. 27 at 10:19 a.m., EPD responded to Turman Hall in reference to a report of threats. The complainant, a resident adviser (RA), said the on-call RA received a phone call from a resident’s parent at approximately 11 p.m. the previous night. The caller told the on-call RA that he was concerned for the safety of the complainant. The on-call RA then handed the complainant the phone, and the father told the complainant that she needed to do her job and that if she did not, he would “put poop in her room.” He also said that he would report her to the police. When asked by EPD if she had any idea why the father would make these statements, the complainant said she was told that when the student was moving into her room, she found what was believed to be fecal matter on the floor. The complainant said that she attempted to address the situation when informed of the issue by asking for photos, but the student said it was already cleaned. The complainant said she is worried that the father may try to act on his threats, as he lives in the Emory vicinity and her room and name are clearly identifiable on her door.
On Aug. 28 at 12:22 a.m., EPD responded to Woodruff Residential Center in reference to a report of sexual extortion.

The complainant said that before the video started, the subject told him not to speak because her roommate was nearby. The complainant said he agreed and proceeded to perform provocatively while nude, and that the subject reciprocated. When the interaction ended on Aug. 28 at midnight, the complainant said he received a text message from the subject stating that she had recorded him. The subject threatened to post the video to Facebook, but didn’t ask for anything in return. After the complainant argued briefly via text with the subject, he contacted EPD to report the incident.
On Aug. 28 at noon, EPD received an entering auto report via telephone.
