Crimes against property
at 9:02 a.m., two witnesses reported they observed a group of people detain a suspect who appeared to be fleeing from Jefferson Boulevard and Figueroa Street possibly with a stolen laptop computer. The laptop was recovered from the suspect and returned to an unidentified male who then left the area. The suspect also left the area and he and the male could not be located during a subsequent search of the area by DPS officers.
at 11:49 a.m., DPS officers responded to a traffic collision on Olive Street and Washington Boulevard involving two vehicles, one of which was a University vehicle driven by a staff member.

LAPD officers were also present to conduct a traffic investigation.
