INFORMATIONAL MESSAGE FROM ALERT CAROLINA: UNC Public Safety Arrests Breaking and Entering Suspect

UNC Police officers responded to a report around 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning (Nov. 17) of a male UNC student breaking and entering rooms on the second floor of Granville Towers West.

A male subject reportedly entered the room of a female resident who awoke to find the suspect asleep in her bed. She asked the individual to leave, and he left the room without further incident. He then reportedly entered the room of another female resident where he attempted to lay down in that student’s bed before he was asked to leave and complied.

The suspect tried to enter several more rooms on the same hall before he was apprehended by UNC Public Safety officers and placed under arrest on two charges of breaking and entering.

At the time of this notice, the suspect is being held at Orange County Jail on a secured bond.
