UA Area, Feb. 6, 1:26 p.m.

A woman who was doing laundry at an apartment complex said she walked in on a man sniffing her underwear, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

The resident at Skyview Apartments, 1050 E. Eighth St., said she had just finished washing her clothes when she realized she didn't have money to dry them. She put her items on top of a dryer and went to get some change, she said.

When she returned, she said, a man was holding a pair of her underwear to his face. The woman said she quickly left to call authorities.

An officer and the woman later ran into the suspect at an elevator. The man said he had simply removed some items from a washer to use it, and denied holding any of the woman's clothes to his face. The officer told him to review Skyview's laundry-room policy.

None of the woman's items were missing.


On the Fence

West Overton and North La Cañada, Jan. 30, 5:37 a.m.

According to a report from the Pima County Sheriff's Department, a teenager took the moving truck his father had rented for an early-morning joyride, crashing it into a wall surrounding their apartment complex.

The father said he was awakened when his son rummaged through his bedroom at about 2:15 a.m. The 17-year-old said he was looking for a cigarette when his dad confronted him, the report stated. At around 3 a.m., the father noticed his son wasn't home.

The father said he yelled at the teen when he returned about 5 a.m. The boy simply gave him the keys to the truck, told him it was parked near the front gate and then left, the report stated.

A deputy noted that the truck had been driven into a wall near that gate. It appeared the truck had been driven part of the way over the wall, causing unknown damage to its undercarriage.

According to the report, there was probable cause to arrest the teen for criminal damage. A deputy was unable to find the boy at the time of the report.


Death Machine

Roger and Flowing Wells roads, Jan. 30, 6:07 p.m.

A man who had been escorted out of a bar stood at the entrance and threatened to stab people, a PCSD report said.

The manager at Stockmen's Lounge, 1368 W. Roger Road, said Allen S. Carlson, 51, told her he had a 9-millimeter pistol, so she had him escorted out of the building.

Once outside, he allegedly brandished a 3-inch pocket knife and threatened to "stick" people. A witness said Carlson told him he "was trained by the government to kill" and was a Vietnam veteran.

Carlson was cited and released for disorderly conduct and threats and intimidation after complaining of suffering a panic attack. The deputy confiscated his pocket knife.
