Flashing, fighting and vandalism plague this week’s crime log


Sept. 7—5:40 p.m.

A small bottle of a chemical reagent has been missing from the Earth and Biological Sciences Building since last month, but was not reported to Campus Security until Oct. 3. The professor waited with hopes of it showing up, but after emailing all the students in the class to see if they knew anything about the bottle, which contained potassium dichromate, the bottle is still no where to be found. The chemical can be dangerous to health, and the case has been left open.

Sept. 24—3 p.m.

A fight broke out at a party between two international male students. The fight did not happen close to City College, but it was somewhere in Santa Barbara, though the exact location was not released. One of the students got mad at the other and struck him several times in the face, causing two facial fractures. The cops were called, but no arrests were made. The Santa Barbara Police Department is still investigating the case.
