ORONO, Maine — Fraternity brothers at Beta Theta Pi called campus police early Sunday morning after a South Portland man apparently caused a disturbance that involved property damage, university spokeswoman Margaret Nagle said Monday.

When University of Maine police arrived at the frat house on Munson Road about 12:45 a.m., “they found a group of people chasing the suspect,” she said. “They said he broke a window at the fraternity.”

Police caught up with the fleeing man, Connor McAleney, 20, just down the street, “and he was bleeding from his right elbow,” Nagle said.

McAleney was charged with criminal mischief and possession of alcohol by a minor, she said. He was also given a criminal trespassing warning that bars him from returning to campus for a year.
