The student said he was walking on North Park Avenue near Star Mart, 520 N. Park Ave., at about 1 a.m. when he noticed two men in a red Toyota Previa driving the same way he was walking.

The student was not injured.

Police searched the area, but could not find the van or the suspects.

University police arrested a man Monday after an employee from a campus-area convenience store said the man was acting belligerent, police reports stated.

The employee said Roy Taulbee, 57, of a general delivery address, was shouting at customers at Circle K, 977 E. Speedway Blvd., at about 1:24 a.m. and would not leave when he was asked to.

UAPD officers went to the Circle K soon after and spoke with Taulbee.

A records check of Taulbee's identification returned no outstanding warrants, but the officers noticed he was extremely intoxicated and had been drinking from a 40-ounce bottle of Mickey's Malt Liquor, reports stated.

Police read him his Miranda rights, cited him on suspicion of drinking in public and third-degree criminal trespass and transported him to Pima County Jail where he was booked.
