At 9:57 a.m. April 18, a Grand Rapids Community College police officer was dispatched to the Applied Technology Center Secchia Institute of Culinary Education kitchen on a report that a student had slipped and fell. When the officer arrived, he met with the GRCC culinary student who complained of pain in her right wrist. She explained to the officer that she had slipped on a small puddle of oil while in the kitchen. She said she fell forward breaking her fall with her hands, causing her to sprain her wrist. She told the officer that she experienced a similar injury a few years ago and was wearing the brace because she was worried about her wrist. She said she planned to go to an urgent care facility after class was over.
At 2 p.m. April 19, a GRCC officer met with a student in an interview room of the GRCC police department. The student had reported his bike stolen and was coming in to give the officers details about his bike. The student said his bike, white with green handles grips and pedals, was stolen from the bike rack on Lyon St. near the Ford Fieldhouse. He parked his bike around noon that day and returned to it shortly before 2 p.m. He said he had secured his bike with a ½ inch cable lock. The officer asked the student to call him when he knew the serial number of the bike to report it stolen. The officer proceeded to drive around campus in search of the bike, but was unable to locate it. When the officer was back from driving, the student had left a voicemail for the officer with the serial number and the officer reported the bike stolen. The case is now closed with no further action.
At 1:32 p.m. April 15, an officer was dispatched to a larceny report at the ATC building. The officer met with a student who said her cutlery set had been stolen from her locker in the ATC building. The cutlery set contained seven blades, a peeler, pastry tips, a pastry bag and thermometer. All of the contents were in a black bag with her name and phone number on it. She said she did not lock her locker because she cannot afford a lock, and leaves her locker unlocked throughout the day. She said she did not have any suspects in mind. The officer then cleared the scene, and reported her bag as stolen. The case is closed with no further action.
