Accident, iPhone theft reported to police

An automobile accident and a stolen iPhone were recently reported to campus police.

On Sept. 23, student Jennifer Morton reported to Officer Ronald Ventresca that her car had been struck by another vehicle.

Morton said she parked her car in Lot A and when she returned later, she noticed damage to her back bumper and a handwritten note on her windshield.

According to Ventresca, the note was written by Dylan Lepak, the driver of the second vehicle. It included his name, phone number, vehicle description and an offer to provide insurance information.

Ventresca later told Morton that Lepak had upheld his obligation in the incident and she was sent on her way.

On Sept. 24, student Jordan Bernharady reported his iPhone 5 had been stolen in parking lot A. Bernharady said a female in a red SUV approched him in Lot A.

The woman asked if she could use Bernharady’s phone to call her aunt. Berenharady gave her his phone. No one answered, according to Bernharady, and his phone was returned to him.

However, according to officer David Madden, Bernharady asked the female if there was anyone he could text to help her out.

She then asked for the phone a second time. Bernharady complied and a male suspect driving the SUV drove away. Madden said the SUV immediately exited campus.

After reviewing area surveillance video, Madden said the vehicle stopped multiple people in the parking lot before making contact with Bernahardy in lot A.

To contact campus police, call 405-682-1611, ext. 7747. For an emergency, use one of the call boxes located inside and outside on campus or call 405-682-7872.
