A student called university police Jan. 19 because she believed a man came into her dorm room while she was sleeping, police reports stated.

The woman told police at 9 a.m. that the man had been calling her, tapping on her window and entering her room at Pima Residence Hall, 1340 E. First St.

The student told officers she had not attempted to trace his alleged calls or informed the hall director of her problem.

The woman also told police she believed the man was living somewhere in the all-female hall, reports stated.

She did not know the dates of the alleged incidents, but had reported the man to police in September.

Police noted the man would have had to scale the side of the building in order to tap on her window because the woman lives on the second floor of the hall, reports stated.

Police were unable to assist the student when she told them about the "burn marks" she found on her body, reports stated.

The student was instructed to call police if she heard noises again and to trace the phone calls.

Police arrested a student on suspicion of marijuana possession early Saturday morning after he was stopped for drinking in public.

Officers saw Daimon L. Fullerton, 21, of the 4200 block of East Fifth Street, walking east on First Street near North Tyndall Avenue with a beer in his hand at 12:50 a.m.

As police questioned Fullerton, they discovered a warrant for "unlawful acts with alcohol," reports stated.

Officers also found a bag in his pocket containing what police suspected to be marijuana.

Fullerton was taken to Pima County Jail where he was released by pre-trial services.

A student called police Saturday night after she was harassed while taking out her garbage, police reports stated.

The woman told police she went to the dumpster on the southwest side of Navajo Dorm, 1511 E. Sixth St., at 9:15 a.m.

While she was tossing her trash, two men on bicycles allegedly approached her and said, "hey, midget" and "short stuff." The woman told police she is four feet tall, reports stated.

The student told officers they pulled her hair and she fell to the ground. The men then told her "not to tell the police or they would find her," reports stated.

The woman told police one man had purple hair, another had yellow hair and they were both wearing black clothing. She believed they were between the ages of 18 and 19.

A student called police Tuesday afternoon after someone threw an egg at her knee.

The woman told officers she was walking west on East Sixth Street with a friend at 10:20 p.m. when a cream-colored station wagon drove by them, police reports stated.

The student said she was struck in the back of the knee, which led her to believe a man in the front passenger seat threw the egg because his arm was hanging out of the window as the car passed, reports stated.

The student also told officers she believed "the attack" was "racially motivated" because she and her friend are Black, reports stated.

The woman had no visible injuries from the egg's impact and told police she was willing to prosecute.

Police officers noticed vandalism on a government vehicle Tuesday night while on bicycle patrol.

According to police reports, someone spray-painted graffiti on the side of a trailer parked on the northwest side of Gila Hall, 1009 E. North Campus Drive.

The trailer had a government license plate, and police were unable contact the vehicle's owner.

Police reports did not give details about the graffiti.
