Man Trespassing in Bostwick Ramp Leaves Behind Suspicious Notes
At 8:45 a.m. Sept. 2, a GRCC custodian contacted the GRCC police department because he discovered a man sleeping in the old ramp office on the first level of the Bostwick Parking Ramp.
The door to the old office has a deadbolt. The custodian was unsure how exactly the man was able to enter the room. The custodian said the man was black, around 18-20 years old, wearing a light blue Pistons jacket. The custodian told the man to leave and to take all of his belongings with him.
The man left the room, but left a notepad containing gang symbols of some kind. There was also the letters “GD” written down, possibly referring to the Gangster Disciples. There were names of two young black men who were shot and killed in recent years as well as the acronym “RIP” next to their names. There was also a note on the second page that read, “Sorry for sneaking in here by the way.”
The officer then checked the door and figured out it wasn’t closing properly and could be opened just by pulling the door open. It is unknown who the man is. The officer who responded to the incident has put out a message to other GRCC officers to be on the lookout for this man.
Culinary Student Cuts Tip of Finger Off
At 9:46 a.m. Sept. 6, a GRCC instructor reported that a student had cut the tip of her finger off.
An officer went to the Spectrum Theater Bakery and met with the student. He attempted to remove the towel from her thumb, but she began to feel nauseous and started sweating. He had her sit down, and she began to throw up. She could not remove the towel and asked for an ambulance.
The student explained she was cutting an apple when she accidentally sliced her finger with a culinary knife. She had immediately wrapped her thumb in a nearby towel. While waiting for the ambulance, she began to feel better. She asked if she could cancel the ambulance and drive herself to the hospital. The officer asked her to stand up, and she was able to stand without feeling weak or sick. The officer cleared her to drive, but first applied a bandage to her thumb. She said she was going straight to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital.
