SUNY Brockport Police subdue violent student Sunday evening

The PBA released a statement applauding officers on Monday

BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - SUNY Brockport junior Jake Miller said something didn't sound right in his residence hall Sunday night.

"I heard a kid screaming at the top of his lungs, probably for 10-15 minutes and the cops were there,” Miller said.

Miller said he didn't think much of it, until other students reported hearing the same thing.

"One girl was asking me if I was yelling in my room. I told her no, she just said, ;oh there's someone yelling in the common room,” freshman Michael Mielcarek said.

We confirmed with the college an incident did happen Sunday night. A spokesperson told us, a student attacked multiple SUNY Brockport police officers.

They weren't ready to go into more detail.

But we learned that student is Dylan Jones.

Meanwhile, a labor union representing university police said in a statement, officers were called to a dorm room Sunday for a report of a male freshman acting violently.

The Police Benevolent Association of New York State said in a release, the student ended up assaulting three other students, punched a police lieutenant in the face and kicked another lieutenant in the ribs.

Miller, who lives in the dorm hall the incident allegedly happened in, is calling it alarming.

 

"Usually Gordon Hall’s a pretty safe place. Nobody has to worry about anything. We're like a little community here."
