5 more people arrested in ‘unsanctioned’ McMaster homecoming party

Hamilton police have made five more arrests in connection with an “unsanctioned” McMaster homecoming party earlier this month.

Police say five men, including three 18-year-olds and two 20-year-olds, were arrested after video and images surfaced of a car being flipped over and street signs damaged at the gathering in Westdale on Oct. 2.

Investigators say two McMaster University students, a University of Waterloo student, a York University student and a Smithville, Ont resident all face a charge of mischief over $5,000.

The impromptu homecoming party attracted thousands of people to Dalewood and Westwood Avenues.

Last week, detectives arrested and charged a 19-year-old student from Wilfrid Laurier in connection with the vehicle damage.

Police say they are not looking for any other suspects.
