The following information is according to reports from the UNF Police Department.

Student reports dress stolen, suspect won’t respond

A female UNF student reported her dress stolen on April 6.

The victim was on academic suspension at the time. When she left UNF, she left behind some of her clothing that she wasn’t able to take with her. She later learned a friend of hers had gone into the room where she left the clothing and took some of the clothes.

The victim and two of her friends contacted the suspect about returning her clothes, but she did not return the dress. The victim said she saw a picture on Twitter showing the suspect in the missing dress.

UNFPD plans to follow up on the case by attempting to contact the suspect.

More clothing issues

A female student reported on April 11 that her roommate stole approximately 32 items of clothing from her.

The victim said she found her missing clothes in her roommate’s closet, drawers, dirty laundry basket and suitcase. She first noticed some of her clothes were missing a few months ago. She asked her roommate if she had seen the missing clothes, but the roommate said she didn’t know where they were.

Between 11:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. on April 11, the victim noticed some of her underwear in her roommate’s laundry basket. She then looked in her roommate’s closet, drawers and suitcase and found even more missing clothes.

The victim asked her roommate about the clothes, and the roommate denied taking them at first. Later, she said she would wash and return the items.

The victim denied pressing charges as she signed a prosecution declination form. A Residence Life Coordinator said the roommate would be relocated to a different room.

Rare skateboard stolen outside Osprey Cafe

A UNF student said his skateboard, which was one of only 400 made, was stolen outside the Osprey Cafe April 12.

The victim said he left his skateboard unlocked at the skateboard rack outside the cafe around 12:10 p.m. He returned at 12:35 p.m., and he noticed his board was gone.

He said the skateboard was one of 400, and even if someone re-painted it, he would know it was his because of the unique way the board was cut.

The responding officer requested to have the police report shared with Resident Assistants and Residence Life Coordinators so they can keep an eye out for the board during upcoming room inspections for spring move out.

Noisy sex, angry ex-girlfriend lead to verbal altercation

An argument occurred between a female student and her ex-boyfriend after she heard him having sex with one of her friends.

Two officers were dispatched to the Flats around 11:15 p.m. on April 11 in response to a disturbance. The officers determined where the noise was coming from, and they spoke with a witness of the event.

A female student was in her room having sex with a non-UNF student. The non-UNF student’s ex-girlfriend came home and became very upset because she heard the noise coming from the room. The ex-girlfriend and the non-UNF student just recently broke up.

The ex-girlfriend started yelling outside the door. The female student who was having sex with the non-UNF student left the room. The ex-girlfriend and the non-UNF student then started arguing. The ex-girlfriend reportedly threw a drinking glass towards the sliding glass door and broke the drinking glass against the wall.* The witness told police there was no physical violence between the two. Only words were exchanged.

The female student said she was friends with the ex-girlfriend, and she had sex with the non-UNF student because she wanted to overcome some issues she had been dealing with.

She went on to say she was afraid for her safety, but she didn’t want to talk to police about it. She said she would meet with Housing in an attempt to resolve the issue.

The ex-girlfriend was not at the room when police arrived, reportedly having left after throwing the glass to go home.
