    Intoxicated woman treated in dorm bathroom

    UAPD officers were dispatched to the Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall on Nov. 8 at 2:34 a.m. in order to provide medical assistance to an intoxicated woman. Upon arrival, officers met with Tucson Fire Department officers and a resident assistant. The RA told police that she had discovered a resident of the hall passed out in a women’s restroom on the third floor. She told police that the woman had vomited and then became unconscious. The RA led TFD and UAPD officers to the restroom where they were able to make contact with the woman.

    According to police, she was awake but very disoriented. She had bloodshot eyes and was confused. TFD officers cleared the woman for release and police questioned the woman about what she had been drinking. She admitted to consuming an unknown amount of beer and rum earlier. Officers informed her that in lieu of an arrest, she would be diverted to the Dean of Students Office for disciplinary action. When RAs attempted to gather the information needed to complete a Residence Life report, the woman slammed her door in their faces. She eventually gave RAs the information that they required. She was diverted to the Dean of Students Office after officers warned her of the consequences of failing to complete her diversion program.

    Trespasser transported to Pima County Jail

    UAPD officers were on patrol near the Parker House Residence Hall at 1775 E. First St. on Nov. 8 at 12:46 p.m. when they observed an unconscious man lying on the ground. On the ground near the man, officers observed two empty bottles of Jack Daniel’s whiskey and a broken glass cup. Officers recognized the man from previous interactions with him. They woke the man up and asked if he needed medical attention, to which he responded that he did not. A records check revealed that the man had been warned in April 2009 against trespassing on university property, as well as a history of citations for intoxication, suspicious activity and disruptive behavior. The man was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing due to his history of police contacts. He was also issued an exclusionary order and transported to Pima County Jail, where he was booked.

    Woman allegedly sexually assaulted by man she refused to identify

    UAPD officers were dispatched to the Navajo-Pinal Residence Hall on Nov. 8 at approximately 9:35 p.m. in reference to a report of a sexual assault. Upon arrival, officers met with a female resident assistant who told them that another female RA had told her that she had been sexually assaulted. According to the woman, the incident occurred off campus and out of UAPD jurisdiction. Tucson Police Department officers were dispatched to the scene to interview the RA who was reporting the incident.

    The RA told TPD officers that her fellow RA had admitted to her that her ex-boyfriend had sexually assaulted her on Nov. 7 while she was attending a party at his home in the area of Third Avenue and Speedway Boulevard. TPD officers contacted the woman who was allegedly assaulted. She confirmed the story that the RA had reported. She also told police that she did not wish to provide them with the man’s name and did not wish to press any charges. Officers provided the woman with information regarding OASIS and the university’s Counseling and Psychological Services. UAPD officers then informed the woman that because she would not reveal the identity of her attacker, they would be unable to follow up on her report. The woman told police that she understood the consequences of her decision.

    Kinder Care property littered by unknown persons

    UAPD officers were dispatched to Kinder Care at 1621 E. First Ave. on Nov. 9 at 9:01 a.m. in reference to a report of criminal littering. Upon arrival, officers met with the director of Kinder Care. He told officers that somebody threw several empty beer containers onto Kinder Care property and he suspected that the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, directly adjacent to Kinder Care, was responsible for the littering.

    According to the director, he left the property at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 6 and did not observe any beer containers on the premises. When he returned on Nov. 9 at 7:30 a.m., he found four empty beer cans and one empty beer bottle on the west side of the playground area of Kinder Care. Officers made contact with the president of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He denied that any member of his fraternity had littered on Kinder Care property. He further added that the fraternity had added a fence to help ensure that objects could not be thrown between the two properties. He stated that the beer containers could possibly have been thrown by past alumni members. Officers advised the fraternity president to inform the remaining members that littering is a crime.
