    A female student reported being harassed at the Mines and Metallurgy building, 1235 E. North Campus Drive, at 8:20 a.m. April 13.

    The student was walking past the building and saw three males standing adjacent to UA vehicle No. 2059.

    One of the men said to her, “”Hey baby, you should take off your shirt.””

    Police contacted the person the truck was assigned to.

    The owner of the truck said he entered the building around 8 a.m. As he walked up to the building, he noticed a male raking leaves.

    Police spoke with another man, a grounds superintendent, who said temporary work crews were in the area that day. The man told the officer he wasn’t sure who the three men may have been.

    He told police he would notify them if he discovered any additional information.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A female student reported an incident of aggravated assault at the Gould-Simpson building, 1040 E. Fourth St., sometime between midnight and 2 a.m. April 13.

    The student said she was walking west past the Gould-Simpson building to her home at Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., when two males drove by and pointed a gun at her.

    The student said she didn’t know what the males were wearing, but “”they looked sketch.””

    “”I don’t remember much because I had been drinking,”” the student told police.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A male student reported being assaulted by a woman near the food booths at Spring Fling at Rillito Downs, 4502 N. First Ave., around 11:20 p.m. April 13.

    A male flagged down a bicycle patrol officer and said his friend had just been assaulted.

    The friend told police a woman had punched him in the face. He said she was upset about profane language he and his friends were using.

    He said the woman asked them to stop and punched him when they didn’t. The male said she hit his friend on the left side of the face and knocked his hat off, and then punched him in the back of the head. He requested the woman be arrested for assault.

    The woman was standing nearby, but told police she was being antagonized by the group after asking them not to use profanity. She admitted to getting upset and slapping one of the males.

    She said the group of people behind her in line repeatedly said the word “”fuck”” loudly while talking to one another. The woman told them young people shouldn’t be talking like that, but they replied, “”Fuck you, you’re not the boss.””

    She admitted that she was wrong to hit and said she had temper issues.

    The male who was assaulted said he was standing in line and one of his friends was on a cell phone using obscenities, but he was not.

    After the woman threatened to hit them, he said he turned his side to ignore her. She then hit him twice in the head.

    The woman was cited for assault, given a court date and released on site.

    A male student reported his vehicle damaged in a hit-and-run accident outside the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1701 E. First St., around 2:07 a.m. April 13.

    The student said he parked his red two-door 2000 Ford Mustang convertible in front of the house around 11 p.m. When he returned at 2:07 a.m., he saw his vehicle had been sideswiped.

    An officer arrived at the fraternity house and saw a white paint transfer, black tire residue and scratches on the driver’s-side front quarter panel of the Mustang. The door could not be opened due to the damage, and debris was scattered about the area.

    The car’s side view mirror had also been broken off and was found 10 feet behind the vehicle along with broken glass. The door had damage to the black trim.

    The officer took photos of the damage, debris and location of the accident. As the officer was cleaning up debris he noticed a metallic silver side-mirror housing had been broken off of another vehicle, which was parked 10-15 feet in front of the Mustang.

    The officer said the paint transfer on the Mustang was not consistent to the paint on the mirror housing. The officer thought a vehicle could have been driving the wrong way down the one-way street and broken both mirrors off, though that could not be confirmed.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.
