BREAKING, ENTERING AND BLEEDING

EAST BENSON HIGHWAY

AUG. 16, 1:27 P.M.

A man armed with a bayonet cut himself severely while allegedly breaking into a residence, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Deputies went to a southside apartment complex in response to a burglary in progress and found a unit with smashed windows. Inside, they encountered a man lying on his back in what appeared to be a pool of his own blood. A 28-inch-long bayonet lay near him, the report said.

The man threatened to kill the deputies as they tried to speak with him. Finally, he said, "Go ahead and take me," and raised his arms to be handcuffed.

The apartment-complex manager told deputies a tenant had called about a man armed with a sword who was "going crazy" in the parking lot and threatening to kill people. He also reportedly was screaming, "West Khalifa sucks" (an apparent reference to rapper Wiz Khalifa), and, "Insane Clown Posse is the best!"

The manager said that when he threatened to call law enforcement, the subject in turn threatened to kill him. The subject then walked to the apartment in which he was later found and broke all the windows.

The manager said he'd seen the subject before—he went by the name "Fat Boy"—but he didn't live at the complex.

Nothing inside of the apartment seemed to have been touched except an electric fan, part of which was outside. It wasn't clear if the subject was bleeding from stabbing himself, or whether he cut himself when smashing the apartment windows.

The subject refused to identify himself. After a struggle, deputies restrained him, and he was taken to a hospital.


NO CLOTHES, NO SHAME

WEST GARNETTE STREET

AUG. 22, 9:27 A.M.

A naked man lounging in full view of his neighbors took offense when one of the neighbors complained, a PCSD report said.

Earlier, the man had reportedly been walking in the nude around a neighbor's backyard, where the neighbor's children could have seen him. When a neighbor later confronted the man, who was then sitting on his outdoor couch, the man reportedly said, "If you call the police, I'll hit you with a tire iron!"

When deputies arrived, they encountered a locked gate with aggressive dogs on the other side. They were able to knock on the windows but got no response. A man and a woman were heard conversing inside.

Others neighbors reported previous erratic behavior by the subject, but deputies couldn't immediately identify him. The case was temporarily closed.
