    Police respond to trespassing, possible public urination
    Police were called to Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall late Thursday evening after it was reported that two men were trespassing in the building.

    Witnesses said two men were seen on the third floor, and they thought one may have urinated on one of the doors in the female hall. Police talked to the students in the room, who said that they heard people talking in the hall.

    All of a sudden, they began to hear what sounded like a steady stream of liquid hit the door, the students told the police. The students looked through the eye hole in their room and saw a man, approximately 5’11″” with brown hair and a light shirt. They said that they did not recognize the subject, but they did not want to open the door to check.

    The two women said that they had no enemies or problems with anyone in the dorm, so they did not know who could have done this. There are no suspects at this time. Residence Life was called to take care of the spill.

    Student warned for harassing ex-girlfriend on Facebook
    A student was warned for harassment last week after a posting he had made on Facebook caused his ex-girlfriend to call police.

    Police were dispatched to a harassment call after a female student reported that her ex-boyfriend was harassing her and her friends on the Facebook Web site. Upon their arrival to the girl’s residence, she said that she had broken up with her ex-boyfriend a few months ago after sleeping with him.

    About three weeks ago, he began placing check marks by her name on his Facebook wall. He had also placed check marks by the names of several other females. The woman said she was confused, because she thought she and her ex-boyfriend were still friends.

    The woman also reported that her friends recently had had an encounter with her ex-boyfriend. On Aug. 29, they were at O’Malley’s bar when they saw him. The girls decided to confront him. They asked what he was doing and a small argument broke out. After the confrontation, they left the bar. Soon after, the woman’s ex-boyfriend sent her a threatening message on Facebook.

    When police questioned her about the incidents, she said that he had never made a threat toward her, but she wanted to see what her options were to get him to leave her alone.

    The woman asked if police could contact her ex-boyfriend to tell him not to contact her anymore.

    She also told police that she had recently blocked him on her Facebook account. Police went to the Marriott Hotel where the ex-boyfriend works to talk to the man.

    He said that he had put check marks by her name and others on his Facebook to represent women whom he had slept with. He said he knew it was stupid and removed the check marks.

    He also apologized on his Facebook. The man said he had no intention of doing anything to her and her friends.

    The man was warned of possible harassment charges.
