University of Arizona police responded to a call Wednesday after a supervisor reported his employee's life was threatened, police reports stated.

A UA supervisor, who works at the Modern Languages building, 1423 E. University Blvd., said a man approached him Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. and told him an employee owed the man $60 for drugs, reports stated.

The man also said if the employee did not pay the money "someone could put a bullet in the back of his head and bury his body in the desert," reports stated.

The man added that the employee owed other people money and that they were looking for him, reports stated.

The supervisor told police he was startled and did not know what the man was talking about.

The employee said he met the man about two months ago and has bought cocaine from him, reports stated.

He said he met the man on March 10 at Campus Cantina, 749 N. Park Ave., and they later snorted four or five lines of cocaine at the man's house, reports stated.

The employee said after they finished snorting the cocaine the man said the employee owed him $60, reports stated.

The employee said he agreed to pay him on March 13, but did not because he did not have the money, reports stated.

The man called the officer later that night because he said his friends told him the officer was looking for him, reports stated.

The man said he went to the Modern Languages building to notify the employee's boss that the employee had a drug problem and owed him money, reports stated.

The man told police he did not threaten anyone but repeated what he had heard from others, reports stated.

He said some men were looking for the employee and said to tell him they wanted their money or he should not come home, reports stated.

The man added he thought the employee stole money from his wallet and borrowed $40 from him on March 10, reports stated.

The man was released on the scene and police told him not to contact the UA employee or the employee's supervisor.

Police arrested a UA student Sunday for third-degree criminal trespass at Coconino Residence Hall, 1003 N. Olive Drive, after he was told not to be there, reports stated.

Police found Dong Sin, 18, hiding in a female student's closet in just his boxer shorts after a resident assistant reported he was trespassing, reports stated.

The resident assistant said Sin was not supposed to be in the building because of relationship problems with the student he had been dating for about 10 months, reports stated.

The resident assistant said Sin may have been physically violent to the student that night, reports stated.

The student said Sin has threatened to cut the her throat, kill her family, make her drink bleach and "torture you like you did me," reports stated.

The student told police Sin told her he was going to have sex with three of her friends and then sleep with her so she would "know how it felt," reports stated.

Sin said he was advised by the hall director to not be inside the building, reports stated.

He also said he did not sign a contract with Residence Life so he did not know he was not allowed in the building, reports said.

Sin was cited for third-degree criminal trespass and released.

The resident assistance said she contacted the hall director, who was out of town, and she wanted to press charges.

The officer contacted the student at Sixth and North Santa Rita Avenue and the student told police he did sign the agreement, reports stated.

The recreation center employee said she did not want to press charges for criminal damage or trespass.
