IU police have made a second arrest in a suspected hate crime. Nineteen year old Aldwin Shade turned himself into police Monday. He is the second suspect police have arrested in connection with a robbery of a group of Asian students on Halloween night. IU Police Chief Keith Cash says officers did a trace on one of the stolen items and that led them to Shade’s home in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
“Just with contact with the family. I know they were trying to get him to run himself in and I think there were some media releases down there as well,” Cash said. “So we got a call Sunday that they were going to bring him in Monday and turn himself in.”
Shade was not an IU student. Cash says he was in Bloomington visiting Terry Campbell. Campbell was the first suspect arrested and is a former IU student. Currently Cash says they are the only two who will face criminal charges. There were a total of seven people involved, but the others, although they were present, did not participate in the battery or robbery. The IU Dean of Students will decide what action to take against the others who are IU students.
Meanwhile both Cash and Campbell are facing the highest level felony charges for the robbery and battery because of the extent of the injuries one of the victims suffered.
