Grambling State University Police made two arrests Thursday after responding to a disturbance at a GSU residence hall.

At about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, GSU officers were dispatched to Wheatley Hall regarding a disturbance. The on-duty resident assistant told officers she heard a loud commotion outside her office. She stated she heard female voices threatening to make entry into a room. When she went into the hallway, she observed two females and some males walking away. 

Officers interviewed the man and woman inside the room. The female identified the suspects as Kentrice E. Sullemon, 19, of Dallas, and Lillefaye Trahan, 19, of New Orleans. The victim stated she was visiting the male when the two came to the room trying to fight her. They attempted to force their way into the room and the male asked them multiple times to leave. They reportedly refused and threatened to get someone to fight the man. He stated the two attempted to forcibly push open the door and enter the room.

Officers reviewed video footage of the hallway which showed the two suspects approaching the room and attempting to push open the door multiple times. The two were located at Adams Hall and taken to the GSU Police Department for questioning.

The two were arrested for unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling and disturbing the peace and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
