Talk about this story

A UA student called university police Tuesday after a man called and left obscene messages on his answering machine, police reports stated.

The man said he returned to his room at La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland Ave., at about 3:30 a.m. and checked his phone messages.

He told police the messages were sexually suggestive and were from a man who claimed he is a resident assistant at Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., reports stated.

The student said he contacted the Center for Computing and Information Technology, 1077 N. Highland Ave., and employees are trying to trace one of the calls.

According to reports, the student said the man on the message was trying to fake a woman's voice and was saying "I want to suck you off."

The student said he recognized the voice from messages he received last semester, reports stated.

Police have not yet contacted the Apache-Santa Cruz hall director about the calls or whether the caller is a resident assistant there.

A UA student contacted UAPD Tuesday after witnessing a man stealing bike parts from near a UA building, reports stated.

The man said he was by the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering building, 1130 N. Mountain Ave., at about 2 p.m. when he saw another man moving between bike racks on the east side of the building and his car, which was illegally parked in a handicapped parking spot in a nearby parking lot.

The student said he didn't know what the man was doing at first, so he watched him for a few minutes.

He saw the man taking parts off of bikes on the racks and placing them in the car, reports stated.

The man finally got in his car and left with the bike parts, so the student called UAPD, reports stated.

The student got the man's license plate number, but didn't get a good enough look at him to help police make a composite sketch.

A UA employee called police after discovering items were stolen from a classroom in a UA building, reports stated.

The woman said sometime between Dec. 16 and Jan. 31, two world maps and an overhead projector cart were stolen from a classroom in the Education building, 1430 E. Second St.

The woman said it was the third time in the past year that maps had been stolen from the same room, reports stated.

The maps are valued at an estimated $15, while the cart is valued at an estimated $150, but an overhead projector which was also on the cart was not damaged or taken.

The woman said the room is open to students from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and none of her fellow employees know what happened to the cart or maps, reports stated.

Police responded to a UA building after an employee reported a bucket of tools was stolen, reports stated.

The employee said he left a white plastic bucket of tools in the Physical Resources Shops building, 1320 E. Fifth St., at about 7 a.m. Friday and when he returned at 7 a.m. Monday, the bucket was not where he left it.

A pair of vice grips valued at an estimated $15, a wire brush valued at an estimated $5, a fluke tester valued at an estimated $150, a pair of needle-nose pliers valued at an estimated $12, a pair of Linesman pliers valued at an estimated $20, a pair of wire strippers valued at an estimated $10 and two Phillips head screwdrivers valued at an estimated $10 were stolen with the bucket.

The man said buckets of tools have been stolen from the building before.

None of his fellow employees have seen the missing bucket.

Police spoke with a UA employee Tuesday after she reported a telephone stolen from a UA building, reports stated.

The woman said between 1 and 5 p.m. Monday a telephone was stolen from the front desk at the Arizona Cancer Center, 1515 N. Campbell Ave.

The employee said she did not see any suspicious people during the time the phone is believed to have been stolen.

She also told police fellow no fellow employees had seen the maps or the cart.
