    Police Beat: Sept. 19

    *Man breaks windows at DHOP *

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer received a phone call on Tuesday from a concerned parent of a sorority member on campus. The parent wished to report an incident that had occurred at Delta Delta Delta sorority during the sorority’s “DHOP” fundraiser event. He said his daughter told him that a couple of male guests had tried to access the second floor, which was off limits during the event. A sorority member told the men they were not supposed to be upstairs and asked them to leave. One of the men grabbed the woman by the shoulders and pushed her against the wall, yelling “Bitch, I’m a Pi Kappa!” A window was broken during the scuffle and the men left immediately. The parent said the incident went unreported and that his daughter believed the woman involved was unlikely to report it. He did not know the name of the woman. The officer told the parent that police need a victim’s name in order to file a report. He gave the parent the contact information for the sorority’s chapter adviser. Another officer contacted the sorority president. There is no further information at this time.

    When a stranger calls

    A UAPD officer responded to Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall at 1:37 a.m. on Wednesday to speak with a student who reported she had received harassing phone calls. The student said she received 11 phone calls on her cellphone from a blocked number between 1:21 a.m. and 1:32 a.m. that morning. She said she had also gotten strange calls in July when she lived at home. The caller never said anything during the calls and the student did not know who might be calling her. She told the person on multiple occasions to stop calling. The student did not wish to pursue criminal charges at the time and the officer advised her to speak with her cellphone carrier for assistance.

    *Beach cruiser cruises away *

    A student approached a UAPD officer at 8 p.m. on Thursday and reported that her bicycle had been stolen. The student said she had locked her white beach cruiser with a U-Lock to the bike racks in front of the Sigma Kappa sorority house approximately two hours earlier. When she returned, she noticed the bike and the lock were gone. She was able to provide the serial number for the bike, but had not registered it with Parking and Transportation Services. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

    Green card given red light

    A UAPD officer near the Harvill building at 11 p.m. on Thursday responded to an odor of burning marijuana. The officer approached three men just south of the Slonaker House. The men identified themselves and offered to let the officer search them. One of the men took out a plastic bag of marijuana from his pocket and gave it to the officer. He showed the officer his medical marijuana card, which was from California and had expired on Sept. 5. He told the officer he had brought the marijuana with him from California even though he did not have it in a prescription bottle. The man was cited and released for possession of marijuana. The other men were referred to the Dean of Students Office for smoking marijuana.
