    Police reviewed surveillance footage of the parking lot, which showed an unknown person park a car in the lot and stand in front of the student’s vehicle for a few minutes between 4:28 a.m. and 4:33 a.m., Jan. 31.

    A student was assaulted at Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall, 922 E. Fourth St., Jan. 31, reports stated.

    The student told police she received a call to her cell phone from two women who were once friends of hers while she was driving back to the residence hall that night.

    She said the women said they were driving behind her and told her to stop her car and get out. They continued calling her cell phone and told her to “”back off”” from a male friend she knew.

    She then called her roommate and told her about the calls as she was driving to the residence. She parked and got out of her car at the residence hall, where her roommate and three other friends were waiting.

    The two women from the car behind her also parked their car and walked up to the student, she said.

    The student and her four friends said one of the women pushed the student and yelled threats at her. The other woman also pushed the student to provoke a fight, she said.

    Both of the women got back into the car and left. The student said she didn’t want to pursue criminal charges against the women.

    When police arrived, the student allowed them into the room and said he had smoked marijuana outside and sprayed air freshener to cover the smell.

    He said he had just bought 3 grams of marijuana from a friend who lived in Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., for $20. He also had a glass pipe, a metal pipe and rolling papers in his room.

    The student said he had given the marijuana to the student but didn’t sell it. Police told him they would review a surveillance camera of the incident, and the student said he had sold the marijuana for $20.

    He showed police two baggies containing marijuana, a metal grinder, a scale, rolling papers and a pipe that were in his room. He told police he usually doesn’t sell marijuana but did it as a favor.

    Both students were cited and released.
