Just A Little Fun

UA Area, March 24, 3:42 p.m.

A dormitory resident called police over what later turned out to be a practical joke, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

The man returned to his room after class to find drawers open, his clothes all over the floor and a note pinned to his desk with a knife which read, "Pay up ... or next time it's your dick, bitch." The note was signed, "Tyronne."

According to the report, the man said he had no enemies, owed no one money and didn't think "his friends would go that far" when asked if it was a prank. His roommate told an officer that he forgot to lock the door when he left.

Three friends of the man who lived down the hall later admitted the joke. The man's roommate also came clean about letting the friends into the room.

No charges were filed. The report said that the incident would be dealt with by the residence hall administration.

Nature's Call

East Sunrise Drive and North Campbell Avenue, March 17, 8:02 a.m.

A woman complained to authorities about people camping at her apartment complex, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The woman said individuals were camping "everywhere" at her complex while waiting for the office to open, and that she could hear them walking around and talking all throughout the night.

One morning, the woman said, she opened her kitchen blinds to see a man walking across her back patio. The man then started urinating on the outside wall of her apartment, she told authorities.

The woman's husband confronted the man, who in turn reportedly asked, "Don't you ever piss outside?" The husband warned the man and some other campers to stay off his property.

There was no further information at the time of the report.

Human Target

West Overton Road and North La Cholla Boulevard, March 20, 6:24 p.m.

A man standing at the end of his home's driveway said an unfamiliar car crossed over traffic, drove up on the sidewalk and nearly hit him, a PCSD report stated.

The man told a deputy that the car then drove around the corner and into a garage next to his home. He added that he didn't see who was driving the vehicle and was unable to get a license-plate number.

A deputy tried to contact anyone living in the home where the garage was, without success.
