A university employee called police Thursday morning to report a suspicious man in Old Main, 1200 E. University Blvd.

The employee told police a man by the name of "Steve" stood outside her office Tuesday at 2 p.m. The staff member told officers "Steve" wasn't wearing his shoes, but had tied them around his neck, police reports stated.

"Steve" reportedly waited by the employee's door and told another Old Main worker that he wanted to see her.

The staff member told police "Steve" walked away from her office. She found the man minutes later in the hallway and reportedly asked him what he needed. He told her he would come back at another time, reports stated.

The employee told him to make an appointment and asked him again what he needed. He reportedly told her not to get "paranoid," and left the building, reports stated.

The employee told officers the man returned Wednesday at 2 p.m. looking for her again.

"Steve" did not come in contact with the employee, but he reportedly told a tutor at Old Main that the employee was an "idiot."

The man was gone when police arrived, reports stated.

A Tucson woman called police Wednesday night to report loud music coming from the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, 645 E. University Blvd.

The woman told an officer fraternity members were playing loud music, shouting and spraying water at 10:53 p.m., police reports stated.

She told police the noise problem occurred earlier in the week, reports stated. The woman told police she wanted to press charges.

The officer spoke with the fraternity president, who was sitting on the front porch with other members.

Police noticed there were several beer cans "littering" the area.

The president told police the fraternity was making a Slip n' Slide on the front lawn for Spring Fling while listening to loud music, reports stated.

A dispatcher at UAPD told the officer she heard loud music and voices yelling "turn down the music" and "get inside," while she was speaking to the woman, reports stated.

The officer cited the fraternity on suspicion of disorderly conduct.

An employee called police Thursday afternoon to report a UA postal carrier was allegedly "throwing undelivered mail away," police reports stated.

The employee told police he called a United States Postal Service inspector about the situation.

The inspector took the "undelivered" mail into evidence, reports stated.

When the university officer took the report, it was unclear if UAPD should investigate the case or if it fell under postal or federal jurisdiction.

The officer attempted to contact the postal inspector but was unable to reach him, reports stated.
