On Sept. 22 at 12 a.m., EPD responded to 1555 Dickey Drive in reference to a person down due to alcohol on the sidewalk. The subject, an Emory student, was sitting on the sidewalk with friends when the officer arrived. The officer asked the subject what happened, and the subject replied that he had been drinking but that he was “fine.” EEMS and AMR responded to the scene and checked the subject’s vitals.

On Sept. 22 at 11:07 p.m., an EPD officer heard about an armed robbery in progress at 1103 Clifton Road while listening to the DeKalb Police Department North Precinct Radio channel on his car radio. The officer contacted DeKalb dispatch to let them know that he was en route and arrived at the scene. DeKalb County Police arrived shortly after the EPD officer. The EPD officer knocked on the front door of the house and announced himself as police. A female who appeared confused and had blood on her face opened the door. The EPD officer instructed her to lift her hands up as she exited the house before she was then detained by a DeKalb County police officer. The EPD officer then moved to the back of the house, which had two individual apartments on either side, and saw a female hogtied with zip ties on the floor shouting for help. One of the officers first checked the apartment before going to help the woman as other officers made sure the main house and other apartment were clear. The EPD officer found an elderly woman in one of the bedrooms and removed her from the apartment while the other officers continued searching. The EPD officer left the scene after one of the DeKalb supervisors gave the “all clear” on the scene. DeKalb County Police Department began their investigation of the incident as it occurred in their jurisdiction.

On Sept. 26 at 11:50 p.m., EPD received an anonymous report from a campus security authority (CSA) regarding an alleged rape that occurred on April 14, 2018, at Harris Hall. The case has not been assigned to an investigator because the CSA reported the incident to EPD for statistical purposes.
