    Police Beat

    A female student’s red Ford Explorer was keyed while parked at the Delta Gamma sorority house, 1448 E. First St., on Saturday.

    She said she had parked her vehicle at an unknown time in her designated parking spot but had blocked two vehicles in the process. Neither of the two vehicles had Delta Gamma affiliation, so she recorded their plate numbers in case damage was done to her vehicle.

    She said she believed the vehicles belonged to private security guards who were working at the Kappa Sigma Alpha fraternity house across the street.

    The next morning, she returned to find that both vehicles were gone, and that she had a large scratch down the right side of her Explorer from what appeared to be a key.

    A friend told the student that she and others had witnessed one of the vehicles exit the parking lot without any apparent difficulty but did not see the other vehicle leave the lot.

    The officer who was called to the scene talked with another officer who had been on duty the night the car was likely damaged. The overnight officer said he observed the vehicle the woman’s friend saw exit the parking spot without making any contact with the Explorer.

    The vehicle’s driver had backed in and out of the spot several times before leaving, and the overnight officer told him he should contact the Explorer’s owner to avoid an accident.

    The first officer contacted the man, and his story was consistent with that of the overnight officer.

    The student’s vehicle was photographed and she was issued victim’s rights at the scene.


    A man was served an exclusionary order at the Arizona Health Sciences Center Library, 1350 N. Warren Ave., on Friday.

    When an officer arrived he was told there was an unwanted person who had previously been warned for trespassing.

    The officer encountered the man at a computer and saw that he was looking at a gambling Web site. The officer asked the man to follow him outside and the man complied.

    The man had previously been told about the policy on computer usage. He said he remembered, but that he was not looking at pornography.

    The officer had previous contact with the man Jan. 29 when the man was looking at pornography sites. He had 18 different adult sites active on the desktop. The man who, has no affiliation with UA, was told his actions were prohibited and not to return to the library.

    The police were called Thursday about the man looking at pornography again.

    Due to his repeated prohibited use of the computers, the officer issued an exclusionary order to the man.

    The man said he would not return.


    A man exposed his penis to three women at Robson Tennis Center, 900 N. Martin Ave., on Friday.

    When an officer arrived, the women told him they were playing tennis on the northwest court when an unknown man stuck his penis through the fence and asked if he could play.

    The man then began to masturbate with his right hand while walking around the west side of the tennis court.

    He drove away in a silver Chevrolet Silverado, going southbound on North Campbell Avenue. The vehicle’s license plate number is unknown.

    The women stated that they did not want to be victims and just wanted the incident documented.


    Someone hit the passenger-side mirror of a woman’s car in Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage, 880 E. Fourth St., on Jan. 30.

    The woman said she came out to her car to find a note from two witnesses stating someone hit her car and left the scene.

    The witnesses also wrote the license plate number of the car on the paper.

    The woman said she did not want to press charges.
