Three university employees called police Monday afternoon to report "sexually explicit" messages someone left in various campus offices.

Employees in the Life Sciences North building, 1333 N. Martin Ave., told police someone had left "repulsive" notes in numerous fifth floor offices since Jan. 14, police reports stated.

One employee told an officer many people reported finding the notes since their department moved Jan. 14 from the College of Medicine, 1501 N. Campbell Ave, to the Life Sciences North building, reports stated.

She gave the officer a note printed on an envelope that stated: "Do it to me hard the other side of the hall," reports stated.

The employee told the officer she tore up the note and then taped it back together to give to police.

A second employee told the officer he found a similar note taped to a photograph of his wife in his office. He told police he threw the note away.

The employee believed it was placed in his office between 6 p.m. Jan. 14 and 8 a.m. Jan. 15, reports stated. He also told police he left his office unlocked.

The third employee, a student, told the officer she found a message written on her office notepad Monday afternoon.

The student worker gave the note, which stated: "Please suck my dick and I will suck your tits really hard in the restroom at 12 p.m. Guess who?," to the officer for evidence, reports stated.

The student told police she left her office at 5 p.m. Friday and returned at 1 p.m. Monday. She said other employees had been in her office Monday morning, reports stated.

None of the employees suspected anyone and the messages were placed into evidence.

A UA employee was rear-ended Monday morning while she waited at a red light, police reports stated.

The university security guard was in the right lane at the intersection of East Speedway Boulevard and North Mountain Avenue at 10:31 p.m. in a marked security guard 4-door Chevrolet.

Dominique Bryan Edwards, 20, driving a maroon Toyota truck, hit the employee's car at "approximately 15 mph," reports stated.

Edwards told police he was driving east on Speedway when the driver of the car to his left called him an "asshole," reports stated.

Edwards said he believed the driver called him that because of the "asshole" sticker on the back of his truck, reports stated.

The man told police he was looking at the other driver to yell "fuck you" when he hit the UA employee, reports stated.

Edwards was cited on suspicion of failure to reduce speed and released.

Three female students were referred to the Dean of Student's Diversion Program Monday night after they told police they had smoked marijuana.

The officer smelled what he believed to be burning marijuana on the west side of the UA Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., at 10:50 p.m. Three women were sitting behind a tipped plywood box on the ground level of the Stadium near the restroom entrances, police reports stated.

As the officer approached the women, he heard the sound of breaking glass.

Two students stood up when they saw the officer, but did not attempt to flee, reports stated.

The officer saw a small glass pipe containing what he believed to be marijuana.

All three students told police they had smoked from the pipe and one student gave the officer a plastic container with suspected marijuana "particles," reports stated.

The officer pushed the tipped plywood box upright and a lime green plastic bong with suspected marijuana residue fell from an opening in the box, reports stated.

All three students said they did not own the bong. The officer examined the bong and concluded it had not been used in a "long time," reports stated.

The students were not held responsible for the bong, but agreed to participate in the Diversion Program.
