COLUMBIA — The MU Police Department is seeking assistance from the community to identify suspects in two separate cases, a burglary and an assault.
At about 4:40 p.m. on Sept. 27, two males and two females broke into room 281 in the Hearnes Center and stole clothing belonging to the MU athletics department, according to police. The four people can be seen in a surveillance video. Note: The woman in the green shirt at the end of the video is not related to the case.
At about 6:20 p.m. on Sept. 19, a male in a black shirt assaulted a male and a female near the southeast corner of Maryland Avenue Garage, according to police. The suspect headed north on Deans Drive afterward. The police need help identifying the four people in the following photographs. Note: The time in the photographs is one hour behind the actual time, so they were taken at 6:21 rather than 5:21.
Police are asking anyone with information to call MU Police Detective Michael Laughlin at 573-884-2605 or Crime Stoppers at 573-875-8477 or submit information online at 875tips.com. Individuals remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,500 if information leads to an arrest.
