Dear campus community member:

We would like to provide you with an update regarding the aggravated battery described in a Campus Safety Notice earlier this week. All four of the people believed to be involved have been identified and arrested.

More information about the incident and those arrested is available on the University of Illinois Police Department website.

Along with good security camera footage, the information and assistance provided by neighboring police departments, social service agencies and community members aided in the identification of the alleged offenders. The University of Illinois Police Department would like to thank those community partners who helped bring a resolution to this investigation. This once again demonstrates that, by working together, we can all contribute to the overall safety of our community.

The University of Illinois Police Department is continuing to take steps to maintain the safety of our campus community. We still need your help – please continue to look out for yourself and others by walking in groups and in well-lit areas. Remember that SafeWalks continues to operate during the school break, and you can call 217-333-1216 after 9 p.m. to request a walking escort as you travel through campus. And please call police if you ever feel unsafe or observe suspicious activity. We are always happy to help, even if it turns out to be nothing.

Thank you again for being an active participant in the safety of our campus community.


Matt Myrick
Interim Chief of Police
University of Illinois Police Department
