Police Beat: October 30

You aren’t welcome here

A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a physical altercation between two residents of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall on Oct. 21.

A UAPD officer was dispatched to Apache-Santa Cruz, where he met with one of the residents who was having problems with another student in the hall.

The resident had told the other student he no longer wanted to see him in his room and that he was not welcome there.

Around 5:50 p.m., the resident had some friends over in his room to hang out when the other student knocked on his door. He claimed he had to tell the resident’s roommate something, and the resident allowed him to.

After the roommate and the student had talked, the student was asked to leave about 10 times.

The resident became upset and agitated and asked the student to leave again. The student asked, “Are you going to cry?” The resident responded, “No, I’m about to pop you.”

The resident had grabbed the doorknob to let the student out, and his arm grazed the student’s arm. The student then shoved the resident into the wall and left the room, slamming the door.

The officer then went to check on the student who shoved the resident. The student said he believed the resident had been stealing from him.

The student was sent to the Dean of Students Office for a referral for violating the Student Code of Conduct.

 The unimmaculate conception

On Oct. 20, UAPD responded to a student who said he had been receiving unwanted messages.

The student said he met a girl on the app Tinder, and they met in person on Oct. 17.

That night, the student invited the girl over to hang out at his house, and she left a few hours later. Later that week, he invited her over again but felt something strange was going on. After she left, he decided he wouldn’t contact her again. The student said they did not have sex but other things may have occurred.

The student noticed she had sent him a Facebook message the next day saying she needed to go to the doctor. When the student didn’t reply, she responded with a series of other vulgar messages.

The girl later messaged his mother, father and sister saying he had gotten her pregnant, though they never had sex.

The student did not want to press charges but wanted UAPD to tell her to not communicate with him in any form.

UAPD followed up with the girl, who is also a student. She said she had hung out with him and that he was not nice. She later found out he had a girlfriend and was very angry about that, which caused her to send the messages.

According to the report, she had another issue like this with another male student last year.
