A female student called university police early Friday morning after she received a threatening message on her answering machine, police reports stated.

The resident of Mohave Residence Hall, 1000 N. Park Ave., called police around midnight Thursday and told police she thought someone left the message between 11 p.m. and 11:45 p.m.

The recording addressed the victim by name in a threatening voice and said, "This is Satan, you're going to die," reports stated.

The student told police she didn't recognize the voice and that she knew of no one who would want to cause her any harm.

Police gave the student an emergency phone number to use if "Satan" called back.

Police referred a male student to the Dean of Students Office Thursday afternoon after an officer noticed the man riding a bicycle with another partial bike hanging off his handlebars, police reports stated.

The officer was patrolling near the intersection of East Sixth Street and North Highland Avenue when he saw the man on the bike and noticed that the other bike had no wheels or a seat.

After pulling over the student, police asked if it was his bike and he said no, reports stated.

The student told police he had seen the bike in the racks at the Student Recreation Center, 1400 E. Sixth St., with no wheels or seat.

According to police reports, the student said it had been sitting there unlocked for a week and he told police he thought the bike didn't belong to anyone.

The bike was taken into university police custody.

According to police reports, the employee's car was facing north and the other car was facing south at the time of the impact.

The damage consisted of a 6-by-3-inch scuff mark on the driver's side by the gas cap, reports stated.

The woman told police she couldn't provide more details about the make of the car and that she didn't leave any information for the owner of the car, but said she was willing to pay for damages if the owner called police.
