Kutztown chief says police stretched thin

Posted by televiser on 09.26.2007 at 01:02

Kutztown’s police force is stretched to its limit and has difficulty providing basic services in the face of an expanding enrollment at Kutztown University, the borough police chief said Wednesday.

"My department is at the breaking point," Chief Theodore R. Cole Jr. said at a conference on safety at the university. "As enrollment at the university increases, the department is finding it difficult to keep pace."

Cole’s assessment came at a roundtable discussion with government and education leaders 12 days after Kutztown University student Kyle G. Quinn died following a beating on Main Street.

State Sen. Michael A. O’Pake asked university officials, local police chiefs and state liquor control officials for ideas on how to quell violence brought on by drinking.

Quinn, 19, was attacked early Sept. 7 as revelers coming off a Thursday night of drinking poured from Kutztown bars.

Council sets a special session

Posted by televiser on 09.25.2007 at 18:17

For a community and a university racked by two recent deaths of college students, a special Kutztown council meeting set for Oct. 4 probably can’t come soon enough.

Borough council set the special session for 7 p.m. in the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 357 W. Main St. at its meeting Tuesday night.

At the regular meeting, the deaths of Kyle G. Quinn and Christopher A. Reynolds were brought up repeatedly by residents, students and council members.

Quinn died following a beating in the borough Sept. 7. Reynolds was killed by a train near Lyons on Saturday.

Several audience members used the forum to voice concerns about students’ drinking, though drinking has not been cited as a factor in either death.

Kutztown University student slain

Posted by televiser on 09.08.2007 at 16:47

A 19-year-old Kutztown University student was fatally beaten on Main Street in Kutztown early Friday morning by three men who were roving the small college town looking for a fight, authorities said.

Kyle G. Quinn of Warminster, Bucks County, was discovered lying in a pool of blood on the sidewalk in the 100 block about 2:30 by a borough police officer, said borough police and Berks County District Attorney Mark C. Baldwin.

The officer apprehended five men from Allentown — none of whom is a university student — in a car parked at the scene.

Authorities later charged three of them in the assault: Terry D. Kline Jr., who turned 22 Thursday, his brother Kenneth R. Kline, 21, and Timothy R. Gearhart, 23.

The three were arraigned late Friday afternoon before District Judge Wally Scott in Reading. Scott sent them to Berks County Prison in lieu of $10 million bail each.

The Kline brothers and Gearhart were charged with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, recklessly endangering another person and conspiracy.

Baldwin said he expects to file murder charges following an autopsy scheduled for today in Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown.

Quinn was taken to the hospital by helicopter after being transferred from an ambulance at the Kutztown Airport. A staff doctor pronounced him dead at 3:36 a.m.
