Two Arrested After Breaking Into Sigma Chi Fraternity House

Last updated on Wednesday, December 7, 2016

(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University police arrested two men Sunday morning after members of the Sigma Chi Fraternity house called to say someone had broken in and were in the basement armed with a knife.

Police arrived at 11:52 p.m. at the fraternity house at 601 East Seventh Street.

According to Police Lt. Craig Munroe, house members had been throwing a party when the two men, 27-year-old Levi Drouillard of Bloomington and 35-year-old Kenneth Mitchell, asked a house member to enter.

The house member explained the event was only for fraternity members. That made the men angry and Drouillard pulled a 4-inch-long folding knife.

The house member was able to go inside and secure the doors. But the two men broke a window and entered the basement of the home.

Members called police and the member began communicating with other house members via messaging to alert everyone about the situation.

Police arrived within minutes and arrested both men.

Drouillard had cut his head when crawling through the broken window and was bleeding profusely.

After securing the knife, officers administered first aid.

Both men are facing felony charges of burglary and intimidation with a deadly weapon. They are being held at the Monroe County Jail on a $10,000 surety, $500 cash bond.
