University Police has arrested a suspect in connection to a string of burglaries this fall.

A 22-year-old was taken into custody on charges of burglary and aggravated battery against a police officer, University spokesman Bob Rowley said. The man was booked October 20 in a Cook County jail on $50,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in a Skokie court on November 7.

UP sent a security alert to the Northwestern community earlier this month warning of burglaries at Willard Hall and Alpha Epsilon Pi. UP Chief Bruce Lewis at the time cautioned students to lock their doors and attend to their belongings.

Rowley said additional charges are forthcoming.
