The University Police Department responded to a report from Empire Commons for an altercation between two students on Oct. 18. While UPD Deputy Chief Jeremy Clapper could not get into specifics, he claims the altercation stemmed from an argument between two known parties.

The suspect, Romar Cadette, a non-resident student who was found to be in possession of a knife, was taken into custody for a slew of misdemeanors including criminal possession of a weapon with intent to use it, attempted assault in the third degree, menacing in the third degree, and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle. One party sustained minor injuries, but no medical treatment was required.

The suspect was taken to the Albany County Jail and arraigned where they were released without bail. They are due back in court sometime in the coming weeks.
