Unincorporated Pima County, April 29, 8:15 p.m.
A woman accused two men--who helped her change a flat tire--of driving off with her vehicle when they were done, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.
A deputy found the woman hiding in the brush; she reportedly said she had been scared.
According to the woman, she had pulled over after her tire blew out and was in the process of retrieving a spare when an SUV pulled up behind her. Two men--one heavyset and older, the other younger and slimmer--walked up to her.
The men spoke little English, according to the woman, but communicated to her that they were going to help. They finished the job and then started arguing with each other, she said.
The woman told authorities that she offered to pay the older man, and he gave her a strange look and clenched his fists. She said he started walking toward her, so she threw the keys over the vehicle and into the roadway before scurrying off into the desert.
The woman said she could see that one of the men entered her vehicle, while another entered the vehicle they had been driving in, and both sped off.
At no time were any threats made, the woman said.
Shanks a Lot
Unincorporated Pima County, April 26, 10:08 a.m.
An unruly student at a middle school was busted for saying he wanted to "shank" his teacher, a PCSD report stated.
The teacher said the boy, who was being disruptive, told her, "Hey, miss, I'm going to shank you," and repeated his desire to shank her several more times.
She told authorities she didn't feel scared by the threat, but was upset by the student's words.
The student claimed another boy had made the shanking threat. He did, however, say he came into class hyper after eating "four large pieces of candy."
Other boys said the first student had been cussing at the teacher and both had repeated the threat to shank her.
A deputy cited both boys for disorderly conduct and released them to their guardians.
