The following incidents were reported in the USC Dept. of Public Safety daily incident log between Tuesday, Jan. 24, and Wednesday, Jan. 25.

Crimes against a person

at 9:46 p.m. on Jan. 24, a student in the USC School of Cinematic Arts said he was pushed by his professor after he entered a darkened classroom while a movie was playing and bumped into the professor.

Crimes against property

at 12:37 a.m. on Jan. 25, DPS officers responded to a report of three suspects vandalizing vehicles near 3427 Catalina St. and detained three students for investigation. The students were intoxicated and, during questioning, said they had been kicking vehicles. The owner of one of the vehicles said the side view mirror was damaged, but he did not desire criminal prosecution. The students were told the matter would be referred to Student Judicial Affairs and was released.

at 7:43 p.m. on Jan. 24, a suspect smashed the rear passenger side window of a car parked on 28th Street and Hoover Street to gain entry and stole a bracelet, an emergency kit and a pair of jumper cables.

at 9:29 a.m. on Jan. 24, the luggage compartments and possibly the undercarriage were damaged when a staff member drove a university tram outside of the USC area over a raised portion of pavement while transporting passengers up a hill to a cabin in Malibu.

Miscellaneous incidents

at 5:43 p.m. on Jan. 24, DPS officers responded to a fourth-floor fire alarm that was activated at the Ronald Tutor Hall of Engineering when a student accidentally bumped into a pull station. No smoke or fire was found. FMS personnel responded to reset the alarm and officers cleared the building for re-entry. LAFD was not requested.

at 3:10 p.m. on Jan. 24, DPS officers responded to a non-USC male who was found unresponsive in an examination room in Healthcare Consultation Center. A Rapid Response team was at the scene treating the male when officers arrived and the man was subsequently transported to Keck Hospital of USC for additional medical treatment.

at 1:52 p.m. on Jan. 24, a student in Taper Hall said a male subject, who she recently met at a social gathering, has shown up at a market where she was shopping and in one of her classes on campus, which has caused her to fear for her safety. DPS officers advised the student to contact them if she encounters the subject again.

    Can someone explain why the USC tram was four-wheeling in Malibu? No wonder the tram is always running late.
