A hall director called police early Tuesday morning after seeing two men argue near a residence hall.

Officers were told the two men had been arguing on the north side of Babcock Residence Hall, 1717 E. Speedway Blvd., at 2:21 a.m. When police arrived at 2:26 a.m., they found two men and one woman standing on the southwest corner of the College of Pharmacy, 1703 E. Mable St.

According to police reports, the three people were not being loud, but officers saw one of the men run as police approached them.

The female student told police they were arguing because one of the men involved was jealous of the other man. She told officers one of the men was her boyfriend and the other was angry about it, reports stated.

Officers spoke with the hall director, who said he didn't want to press charges. He told police he would call them again if the man returned and said it was acceptable for the student's boyfriend to remain in her room, reports stated.

The hall director also told police he would consider contacting Residential Life about restricting the student's visitor rights.

The other man returned to the dorm at 2:48 a.m. and the hall director called police back to tell them the man had gone into the student's room.

Police went to her room and the student told officers both men were in the bathroom, reports stated.

Police asked the persistent man why he had run from police during the first encounter. He told officers he was scared of the police, reports stated.

Officers checked the man's identification and discovered he was 16 years old.

The student and her boyfriend gave the other man a ride home, reports stated.

A student called police early Wednesday morning after he had received five phone calls he considered to be harassing, police reports stated.

The student told police at 12:25 a.m. that the calls occurred between Oct. 31 and Wednesday. He said he received all the calls in his dorm room in Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St.

According to reports, the student told officers all five calls were from a man who said things such as, "Where are you?" and "What are you doing?"

The student told police he considered the calls to be threatening and that he did not recognize the man's voice, reports stated.

Officers told the student to try and trace the calls and to consider changing his phone number.

The student told police he would like to press charges if someone is connected to the calls, reports stated.

Two female students called police Wednesday afternoon after they noticed some of their belongings were missing.

According to police reports, the two women told officers they left their dorm room in Coconino Residence Hall, 1003 N. Olive Road, at 9 a.m. They returned to the room at 6:36 p.m.

The women told police they had locked their door when they left and that it was still locked when they returned, reports stated.

Items stolen included two packs of birth control pills, a $40 shirt, $30 jacket and a $9 bottle of body spray.

The women told police there have been a lot of thefts on the third floor of the dorm in the past month, and that it will be the second time they will change the lock on their door, reports stated.

Police warned two students early Wednesday morning after finding old parking garage overhead lights in the trunk of the student's car.

Officers arrived at the Park Garage, 1140 N. Park Ave., at 12:31 a.m. and found a black Jeep Cherokee parked on the second level of the garage with its engine and headlights off, police reports stated.

Officers found two women sitting in the Jeep and asked the driver why she was there.

The woman told police she was an art student and was working on a sculpture project, reports stated.

The other woman in the car said she was also an art student and was working on a sculpture project. She also told police she has a 4.0 grade point average and had never been in trouble before, reports stated.

The women told police they thought the lights were garbage and didn't know they were doing anything wrong, reports stated.

The garage lights were sitting unattended in a pile because new lights were supposed to be put into the garage, reports stated.

The two women were warned for trespassing and the driver of the Jeep was released. The other woman was taken to Pima County Jail because of a warrant for writing bad checks.
