After receiving reports about two men intruding in dorm rooms at the University of Illinois, police are looking for a second suspect.  University officers already arrested one 20-year old man who they believe broke into a dorm room and stole some items in the room.

Officers began looking for two men after one student called police to tell them that as he woke up from a nap one afternoon, he saw two unknown men in his dorm room in Oglesby Hall.  The first suspect was said to have attempted to steal the student’s computer, but dropped it on the way out.  The other suspect was reported to have taken the student’s cellphone.

The suspect that police arrested was charged with residential burglary.
