A UA employee called police Wednesday afternoon after he found his car dented in several places.

The employee told police he parked his black BMW at 6 a.m. in the University Medical Center parking lot, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

When he returned to his car at 1 p.m., there were 12 "sharp" gouges in various parts of his car, police reports stated.

The employee told police he believed the person responsible for the damage was another UMC employee. The car owner had caught the other employee having an affair with his wife, reports stated.

After the affair, the couple was "harassed" on "numerous" occasions, reports stated.

The employee told police the other UMC employee and his wife verbally threatened his family.

UAPD investigators are planning to follow the case and will review parking lot security cameras.

An unidentified person called police Tuesday night to report a "suspicious person" lingering around the Alpha Phi sorority house, 1339 E. First St.

Officers found a man at 8:32 p.m. fitting the person's description walking east on First Street near North Mountain Avenue, police reports stated.

The man told police he was, "just passing through," reports stated. He was unable to provide police with identification, but gave a name and date of birth.

When the officer asked the man to repeat his date of birth, he gave a different year.

The officer told him to sit on the curb while he tried to find out who the man was. The man said "screw that" and ran off.

The officer ripped the man's shirt as he fled, reports stated. Police were unable to locate him.

Police arrested a Tucson man for a warrant in connection with writing bad checks Wednesday evening.

An officer pulled over Victor Ngoma, 27, at the intersection of East Second Street and North Mountain Avenue at 7:10 p.m., after the officer was unable to locate current registration tags on Ngoma's car.

The officer later saw current tags in the corner of Ngoma's license plate, but had already checked the man's identification and found an outstanding warrant, reports stated.

Ngoma, of the 4200 block of East 25th Street, was taken to Pima County Jail and released by pre-trial services. The officer also cited him on suspicion of not having proof of insurance, reports stated.

A student called police Wednesday afternoon after his Zone One parking permit was stolen from his car.

The student told police there were no signs of forced entry, but said his car is old and lacks a security system, reports stated.
