    Police Beat: April 9

    Mystery spots

    A UA manager reported what he believed to be semen stains on the walls in the Psychology building at 8:40 a.m. on April 4.

    During a building check, the reporting party noticed stains on walls that ran down to the floor. The man perceived them to be old, since the stained spots on the floor were brown, but said upon observation it appeared someone had ejaculated on the walls.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the building and met with the reporting party. The officer then looked at the stains, which he said appeared to be from urine.
    Photos were taken for evidence and a custodial worker was notified.

    Greedy thief

    A UA student reported that an Xbox 360 and two backpacks containing numerous items were stolen from his room in the Theta Chi fraternity at 7:17 p.m. on April 4.

    The student said the incident happened earlier between 11:30 p.m. and 12:15 a.m., when his door was unlocked. UAPD dispatched to the scene to meet with the student after he reported the stolen items. Other stolen property included two MacBook laptops, an iPhone 4, a graphing calculator, Audi car keys, Ray Ban aviator sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, a wallet and Toyota car keys.

    The student didn’t have serial numbers for any of the missing property, but said he wanted to pursue criminal charges. There are currently no suspects or witnesses.

    Keep calm

    A non-UA affiliated man was arrested outside of Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall at 9:36 p.m. on April 4 for failure to appear in court, stemming from criminal trespassing charges.

    A UAPD officer observed the man near the north side of the dorm talking to himself and walking back and fourth “aimlessly.” Upon the officer’s contact with the individual, he seemed “frantic” before calming down. The man told the officer he was walking to an urgent care office and “looking for cigarette butts.”

    The officer had contacted the man the previous day about “bathing in the restroom” at the UA Visitor’s Center. A records check then showed the man had a criminal misdemeanor for trespassing and he was arrested and placed in handcuffs.

    “I’m going to kill myself, take me to the hospital,” the man said.

    The man was taken to Pima County Jail and given a mental health evaluation.
