A student was arrested Friday, May 9 in connection to burglaries that took place early Thursday morning in Schick and Eisenhower Colleges on Kelly Quad.
David Hyunwoo Im, a sophomore from Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., is a suspect of a crime involving second-degree burglary, criminal trespass and criminal possession of stolen property, police said.
The spree of burglaries took place early in the morning, with Im entering a total of five unlocked rooms and attempting to rob their occupants while they slept, police said.
