INCIDENT: Aggravated Battery
OCCURRED: October 23, 2010, 7:18 p.m.
LOCATION: 1010 W. Green Street, Urbana
The University of Illinois Police Department is investigating an aggravated battery that occurred between Daniels Hall and the Materials Research Laboratory (map).
On October 23, 2010 at approximately 7:18 p.m. the victim departed Loomis Lab and walked north on Goodwin Avenue. The victim felt that three individuals were following him causing the victim to attempt to enter the Materials Research Laboratory through the east exterior breezeway. The victim was unable to enter the Materials Research Laboratory and continued to walk east towards Daniels Hall. At this time, the three individuals approached the victim and asked if the victim had the time. These offenders then punched and kicked the victim. The offenders then ran east through the parking lot on the north side of Daniels Hall. The victim was injured in this incident with multiple facial contusions, a minor head injury and chipped teeth.
Offender One is a black male 19 to 20 years old, approximately 5’9” to 5' 10" tall with short hair and wearing a black puffy vest, extremely baggy jeans or black shorts and white shoes.
Offender Two is a black male 19 to 20 years old, approximately 5’9” to 5'10" tall with thin build, short hair and wearing a white t-shirt and baggy jeans.
Offender Three is a black male 19 to 20 years old, approximately 5’9” to 5'10" tall with a thinner build, short hair and wearing a blue t-shirt and baggy jeans.
The University of Illinois Police Department is actively working to identify and apprehend the offenders in this incident. Witnesses to this event or those with information are encouraged to contact University Police.
Members of the campus community are strongly encouraged to follow these safety tips to decrease their potential for becoming a victim:

- Trust your instincts - if it does not feel right, call for help.
- Avoid walking alone at night. Travel in groups when possible and always walk in well-lit, heavily traveled areas.
