An unidentified male stole two basketball warm-up shirts Thursday night during the UA-Oregon State game, police reports stated.

Two security guards working the game at 8:35 p.m., saw the man with short black hair grab the Oregon State shirts, valued at $150, and flee from McKale Center, 1721 E. Enke Drive.

University police searched the area but were unable to locate the man, reports stated.

The security guards said they would be able to identify the man if they saw him again.

Police questioned a man who was seen speaking with the suspect minutes before he snatched the shirts. The man told police he did not know the suspect and he would not tell the officers anything even if he did know the man, reports stated.

The two guards told police they would keep an eye out for the man at the game on Saturday, reports stated.

A student called police early Thursday morning after his roommate allegedly threatened him, police reports stated.

The student told officers his roommate had recently been arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession in their room at Corleone Residence Hall, reports stated.

The student told police his roommate had been "threatening" him since the arrest. He also told officers his roommate wanted him to go to the parking lot and fight, reports stated.

The roommate denied threatening the student. Police noted the two students argued with each other while on the phone with the officer, reports stated.

The staff member told police someone entered a lab in the Veterinary Science and Microbiology building, 1117 E. Lowell St., between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday, reports stated.

An employee called police Thursday afternoon after she saw a man soliciting on campus, police reports stated.

The staff member told police she saw the man on the UA Mall at 12:30 p.m. She approached the man and told him he was not allowed to solicit on campus without a permit, reports stated.

The employee said the man understood and left, but she saw him again moments later near Old Main, 1200 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

Police contacted the man, who said he had stopped soliciting after his conversation with the employee, reports stated.

A student driving a red Nissan Pathfinder struck another student riding a bicycle Wednesday evening, police reports stated.

The student on the bike told police he was riding west on East Speedway Blvd. near an alleyway close to North Mountain Avenue at 7:10 p.m. when the accident occurred.

The bicyclist said he slowed as he approached the alleyway and attempted to go around the Pathfinder, reports stated.

He told police the driver proceeded forward and struck him as he biked around the front of the truck. The bicyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, landed on the sidewalk and sustained minor injuries from the fall, reports stated.

Tucson Fire Department medics checked the student and released him at the scene. Police noticed a small scuff mark on the Pathfinder.

No citations were given.
