Crimes against a person
at 2:18 p.m. on Jan. 10, a staff member reported that, while standing in a parking stall she was saving for her husband, a non-USC female forced her out of the space by intentionally driving her vehicle into her. The female was subsequently detained by DPS officers and witnesses confirmed the staff member’s account of the incident. The female was then arrested and transported to 66th station for booking.
at 10:37 A.M. on Jan. 9, a student reported she paid another student to sublet his apartment at Sunset Apartments and, after he cashed her check, she discovered he did not have a current lease and was not authorized to rent it. The reporting student has been unable to contact the second student since paying for the sublet and the matter was referred to DPS and LAPD detectives for investigation.
at 4:50 p.m. on Jan. 9, a female student reported that a male suspect slapped her buttocks as she rode her bicycle past him near Jefferson Boulevard and McClintock Avenue. DPS officers responded, then located and detained the suspect. The suspect was determined to be intoxicated and the officers transported him to a transition house to sober up after the female student declined criminal prosecution of the matter.
