A home invasion reportedly occurred on the 200 block of South State St. at Washington Street, according a crime alert from the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security.
According to the crime alert, the invasion took place around 5 a.m. Thursday morning. A female student reportedly woke up and saw an unknown man in her bedroom. Once he was spotted, the suspect fled the scene. Nothing was stolen from the house.
After a third-degree sexual assault in South Quad Residence Hall at the University of Michigan was alerted last Friday, some residents were concerned about the two-day delay in the crime alert. The assault, which took place on March 27 and was reported to DPSS on April 4, was not reported to the entire student body via a crime alert until 3:40 p.m. on April 6.
Information senior Ibrahim Rasheed said he knows he took “two or three” courses at the University of Michigan that fulfill LSA’s Race and Ethnicity requirement, but cannot recall which ones they were. After spending a few minutes searching for his LSA audit to no avail, he decided that one of the courses was most likely titled, “The History of Islam in South Asia.” After checking the LSA course guide, he found that the course did in fact fulfill the requirement.

David, a Social Work student at the University of Michigan, tried Vicodin for the first time when he was 17.
“I’ve never felt this good in my life,” David, who requested his last name remain anonymous, said.
His doctor prescribed him the drug in order to alleviate any pain he may feel after undergoing a wisdom tooth surgery. The next year, after a lacrosse injury at the University of Georgia, a doctor prescribed him the drug again. When Vicodin didn’t suffice, his doctors prescribed Percocet. After one month of taking the prescription pain medication, he was addicted.
On the corner of two major streets just outside downtown Ann Arbor, Police Officer Christopher Hoffman parks behind a tree that conceals his squad car to passersby, about 10 feet away from the intersection. He focuses intently on the cars passing through, never once taking his gaze off the road. It’s a Saturday night and this is his usual haunt when it’s “slow” during his 12-hour shift.
