Police Remove Trespassers From San Francisco State University Dorm

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A San Francisco State University police officer was hospitalized after responding to a disturbance involving several trespassers at a university dormitory Thursday night, a university spokeswoman said.

Some unauthorized people entered Mary Ward Hall around 8 p.m. and university police were called, university spokeswoman Ellen Griffin said.

The people resisted attempts from university and San Francisco police to remove them, Griffin said.

At some point a fire alarm was pulled and the dorm was evacuated. Eventually five people were arrested, and one university police officer was injured.

The officer was taken to a hospital. Griffin said it was not yet clear how the officer was injured or what the extent of the injuries is.

Residents have been allowed back in to the dorm but police remain at the scene checking IDs of everyone entering the building Thursday night.
