A University of Arizona student contacted university police Thursday after her roommate left threatening and intimidating notes in her room, police reports stated.

The woman said her roommate was upset with her and other residents of Graham-Greenlee residence hall, 610 N. Highland Ave., because they were involved in an incident that forced the roommate's boyfriend to be banned from the residence hall, reports stated.

The woman said her roommate left a threatening note on the roommate's bed and a note on some food in the room that stated "If you touch this, I'll beat you," reports stated.

According to reports, the roommate also divided the room in half with tape.

The woman decided against pressing charges against her roommate, but said she was frightened that her roommate might assault her, reports stated.

The resident assistant for the women was contacted about the matter and said that arrangements are underway to move one of them, reports stated.

Police arrested a man Thursday morning for trespassing on a campus-area building, reports stated.

Rudy C. Villegas, 29, of a general delivery address, was seen sleeping on the roof of the Arizona Program for Nicotine and Tobacco Research building, 1145 N. Campbell Ave., reports stated.

The officer approached Villegas, who had been warned for criminal trespass before and had been cited on suspicion of criminal trespass Sept. 9, reports stated.

The backpack contained an Audiovox cellular phone, valued at an estimated $80; a faceplate from a Pioneer car stereo, valued at an estimated $250; a Texas Instruments TI-83 graphics calculator, valued at an estimated $100; a calculus textbook, a Tucson General Hospital first-aid kit and a bottle of prescription medicine, reports stated.

Police responded Thursday to a report of two men aggressively soliciting a survey on campus, reports stated.

The two men were standing on the west side of Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall, 1000 N. Park Ave., soliciting a survey for a church, reports stated.

The reporting party said the men were soliciting aggressively and that they should leave, reports stated.

Police asked the men if they had permission to be there and the men said that the UA Dean of Students Office knew that they solicited surveys from time to time, reports stated.

The men were allowed to leave, reports stated.

Police contacted the UA Dean of Students Office and an employee said she did not remember if that specific group was granted permission to solicit the surveys on campus, reports stated.

The UA Dean of Students Office then gave police permission to handle future solicitation situations like any other police matter, reports stated.

An employee called police Thursday after observing a man trying to remove a boot from the wheel of his illegally parked car, reports stated.

The man's car was booted earlier in the week at lot 8106, 1420 E. Seventh St., after a UA Parking and Transportation Services employee noticed his parking permit was a fake, reports stated.

Police asked the man about the false permit and he said he photocopied his brother's permit, and it was the first time he tried to use it, reports stated.

According to reports, the man paid the $200 fine to remove the boot and was told to speak to the director of UA Parking and Transportation Services about the possibility of criminal charges being pressed, reports stated.

Police advised the employee that the state can hold charges of theft of services against the man for as long as a year, reports stated.

The man was then released, reports stated.
