A University of Arizona student called police Wednesday night after a man allegedly followed her home to harass her, police reports stated.

The student told police she was walking west on East Drachman Street at 9:10 p.m. when a man between the ages of 30 and 40 on a bike began to follow her and shout "incoherently," reports stated.

The student said the man went around the block and then appeared again at the corner of Drachman and North Fremont Avenue.

The student told police the man allegedly threw rocks at her and at passing cars. One rock struck her in the leg, but she refused medical treatment, reports stated.

The man allegedly followed the student to her residence on North Park Avenue and then continued east on Drachman, reports stated.

The student said she could identify the man if she saw him, adding that she wanted to press charges.

Officers arrested a Tucson man on suspicion of trespassing Wednesday morning after an employee from the UA-area Subway Sandwich and Salads told him to leave, police reports stated.

The employee told police he asked Clifford A. Edelman to leave Subway, 914 E. Speedway Blvd., but he refused. Edelman, 49, was sitting at an outside table in front of the restaurant.

The worker also stated Edelman, of the 700 block of South Sixth Avenue, was told leave the eatery and not to return on several previous occasions.

Police took Edelman to Pima County Jail where he was booked on charges of third-degree trespassing. His bond was set at $162.

The employee told police he wanted to press charges.

Police arrested a Tucson man on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon and driving with a suspended license after they found a knife in his possession.

A University Medical Center security guard called UAPD at 1:36 a.m. to report a gray 1991 Buick Regal circling slowly around the hospital without stopping, police reports stated.

An officer went to the hospital and stopped the Regal at the corner of North Ring Road and East Drachman Street.

Police spoke with the driver, Shane C. Feltz, 23, of the 4900 block of North Via Carina, who said his girlfriend had called him earlier that night and told him to pick her up at the hospital, reports stated.

Feltz told police he did not know why his girlfriend was in the hospital.

When police checked on the woman's name, UMC employees said there was no record of her being registered as a patient, reports stated.

Police discovered Feltz's license was suspended and that he had a knife in his possession.

The knife's 4-inch blade was folded in and police noticed the knife's hinges appeared loose. Police concluded the hinges were loosened so the blade could be flipped open quickly, reports stated.

Police decided to arrest Feltz on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon because the knife was hidden and had loosened hinges.

He was taken to Pima County Jail and released by pre-trial services.

An employee called police Wednesday afternoon after she found a small jar with an "unknown white powder" inside, police reports stated.

Police seized custody of the jar and placed it into UAPD property, reports stated.

Someone turned in a JVC detachable compact-disc face to UAPD Wednesday afternoon.
