Police investigation continues into Baker disturbances

September 7, 2007

A series of incidents over the weekend involving Baker University students resulted in several citations from the Baldwin City Police Department, including criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and battery.

"Basically, there were some incidents over the weekend at Baker," said Cpl. Kristen Dymacek. "We had problems with fraternity members with fights. We issued some citations to appear on battery charges."

Sgt. Greg Schiffelbein said officers first responded at around 2 a.m. Saturday to Gessner Hall where an altercation had occurred. One person was cited for criminal damage and battery and another for battery.

Later that day, officers responded to another disturbance at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at 412 Sixth Street. However, the suspects fled the scene, he said.

Officers responded to the same location later that night for yet another disturbance. Again, several subjects fled the scene. However, two people were cited for battery and a third for disorderly conduct.

Schiffelbein said the three incidents are still under investigation and names won't be released until later. The Signal will update this story as more information becomes available.
