The Ithaca Voice reports Acting Chief Ted Schwartz said his department received several calls related to the event, one alleging an altercation between students and a nearby resident who accused them of trespassing and property damage.

By Friday afternoon, the IPD had not made arrests or issued citations related to the event.

Although the city granted a conditional permit for the concert, police arrived near midnight to aid the fraternity’s security in ending the event. A representative from Cornell stated that the university’s police did not assist and confirmed that the concert adhered to city event protocols.
