    Men arguing over woman throw punches

    A male UA student reported that a Pi Kappa Phi fraternity member assaulted him on Jan. 17.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer arrived to the student’s dorm at 4:30 a.m. where he found the student passed out on a couch with blood on his shirt.

    The officer spoke with the resident assistant who originally called in regarding the student.

    The officer woke the student and asked if he needed medical attention but the student declined.

    The student told the officer that a fraternity brother punched him around 3 a.m. at Pi Kappa Phi over a girl they both dated.

    Another officer took photos of the student’s injuries.

    The officer then went to follow up with the accused party on Jan. 17 at 10:30 p.m.

    The fraternity member told the officer the assault occurred at a party off campus.

    The student had arrived to the party and punched the Pi Kappa Phi member once in the face after he offered the other student a handshake.

    The Pi Kappa Phi member responded by punching the student but told officers he was unsure of how many punches were thrown or if he caused any injuries.

    The Pi Kappa Phi member then told the officers that he had already filed a police report with Tucson Police Department about the same incident.

    The officer followed up with the original student about the discrepancies in their stories, after which the student admitted the altercation did occur off campus.

    The Pi Kappa Phi member and the student met, resolved their issues and determined they no longer wished to file charges.

    Catfight at AEPi

    A female UA student contacted UAPD regarding a purse stolen from her at the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house on Monday at 3:09 a.m.

    The student told the officer that she last saw her purse with an acquaintance, another female UA student, who left for another party with it in her possession.

    The UAPD officer contacted the other woman, who told the officer the purse was in her car the entire time.

    The acquaintance was compliant and returned the purse, replying that she and the other student got into a fight, causing her to leave the party.

    The woman came back, after attending another party with the student’s purse, when the two girls got into a fight.

    The acquaintance reported that the other student threw punches while she did not fight back. She also said she wanted to press charges.

    The UAPD officer followed up with a man at the fraternity house who said that when the woman returned with the purse, the two girls got into a fight.

    The man said both girls threw punches and pulled each other’s hair in the main hall of the fraternity house.

    The officer asked if the man would be a witness to the assault. But the man said he would not be comfortable testifying as he is leaving Tucson on Thursday.

    The officer then contacted the student and advised her that it is impossible to tell who the aggressor was in the case, marking the incident as mutual assault.

    The student said that if there was a chance she could get in trouble, then she did not wish to pursue charges.

    Hide your wheels, hide your shocks

    A UAPD officer responded to Sky View Apartments in regards to a bicycle part theft on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

    A male UA student told the officer his wheels and front shock absorbers were taken off his bike sometime Saturday night.

    The student requested that fingerprints be taken off of his bike to find the suspect.

    He also told the officer that his bike was parked in view of a security camera.

    The officer forwarded the case onto a detective who would follow up during the week.
