University police arrested a man Thursday after witnessing him attempt to steal a bike, police reports stated.

A UA student called police at about 11:06 p.m. after seeing the man, later identified as Carlos Guzman, 30, of a general delivery address, acting suspicious near a bike rack northeast of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fifth St.

When an officer arrived at the residence hall, he noticed Guzman crouching behind one of the racks working on a bike, reports stated.

The officer asked Guzman what he was doing and he said he was fixing his bike, reports stated.

Guzman told police his bike was silver and pointed to it, but he was working on a blue bike, reports stated.

The officer asked Guzman to lie on the ground and Guzman complied.

Police searched Guzman for weapons and found a buck knife and a six-inch crescent wrench, reports stated.

The officer detained and handcuffed Guzman and found a brake pad on him that matched the blue bike's brake pads, reports stated.

When the officer ran a check of the identification information Guzman gave him, no matching records came back.

Guzman told the officer he gave them the correct information, reports stated.

The officer placed Guzman in his patrol car and transported him to Pima County Jail.

Guzman was cited on suspicion of theft and criminal trespass.

Guzman was not released by pre-trial services because he didn't give correct identification, and booking positively identified him.

The officer cited Guzman additionally on suspicion of giving false information to a police officer.

Guzman was booked into Pima County Jail.

Police arrested a man Thursday after he was told to leave a businesses property and didn't do so, reports stated.

An employee at Texaco-Star Mart, 501 N. Park Ave., said he was going to work at about 4:25 p.m., when Edward Huey III, 45, of a general delivery address, approached him and asked him for money.

The employee told Huey that he wasn't allowed to panhandle for money on Star Mart's property and he should leave.

While the employee was working, he noticed Huey still sitting on the property.

He knocked on the window to get his attention and he gestured to Huey for him to leave, reports stated.

The employee told police he thought Huey understood him because he waved goodbye and began to walk, reports stated.

A few minutes later, the employee noticed Huey sitting on the northeast corner of the Star Mart property, so he called UAPD.

When an officer arrived, Huey was still sitting on the northeast corner of the property.

Huey began to walk away from the officer as he approached, but the officer told him he wasn't allowed to leave yet.

The officer read Huey his Miranda rights and asked him why he was still on the property.

Huey said he was asked to leave twice but didn't think where he was sitting was Star Mart property, reports stated.

He was cited on suspicion of third-degree criminal trespass and booked into Pima County Jail.

A UA student called police Thursday after discovering his car had been broken into and items were stolen, reports stated.

The woman said she parked her car in a Zone One lot at East Sixth Street and North Santa Rita Avenue at about 11 a.m., and when she returned at about 5 p.m., she found damage to her passenger door, reports stated.

An officer arrived and saw the damage to the door and concluded the door had been pried open to gain access to the interior, reports stated.

The woman's bag valued at an estimated $15, dance shoes valued at an estimated $110, dance pants valued at an estimated $30, an unknown amount of cash, Pleasures perfume valued at an estimated $50 and some angel pins were stolen, reports stated.

Whoever broke into her car also tried to steal her stereo, but only managed to damage the housing around the stereo. The trunk was also broken into, but only the bag with the belongings inside was stolen.

No fingerprints were found on the car.
