A residence hall director told police he believes an ex-resident is responsible for recent thefts after an employee found vomit and urine inside the residence hall, reports stated.

The director of the Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall, 922 E. Fourth St., told police that several of the hall's common items were stolen between Feb. 6 and Feb. 17. Desk drawers, a green couch and an amplifier box have all been stolen.

The director believes that an ex-resident may have stolen the items after he was evicted from the hall.

Some residents told police that the ex-resident was responsible for some vomit that was also found in the hall, and he believes that the same student is tied to the recent thefts, reports stated.

He also said that the student might have been the person that has been setting off fire alarms at the dorm recently, reports stated.

No residents have come forward and told the director that they witnessed the ex-resident vomit, steal, set off the alarms, or urinate on the hall carpet, reports stated.

All of the thefts occurred between the times that resident assistants make their rounds during the night.

The case will be forwarded to detectives for further investigations.

A student was bleeding from her eye after somebody punched her Tuesday night near a campus gym, reports stated.

The student left the Student Recreation Center at 9 p.m. and was walking to her car on North Vine Avenue and East Seventh Street when the incident occurred, reports stated.

When she walked to the driver's side of the car she felt a hard blow to the left side of her face, reports stated.

She said that she was disoriented for a few seconds, but then got into her car, called her boyfriend and drove away. She went to the University Medical Center, 1510 N. Campbell Ave., where a nurse called police.

When officers arrived her a mixture of blood and tears were coming out of her swollen-shut eye, reports stated.

She told officers that she was hit with a closed fist, but couldn't tell know if it was a man or a woman who hit her.

Police took photographs of the student, who said that she wants to press charges if the person responsible was caught, reports stated.

The employee noticed that some new icons had been put on a server at the building at 1632 E. Lester St. When she clicked on the icons, pornographic Internet sites popped up, reports stated.

She told a supervisor about the matter, but when she tried to access the icons again, the porn was not accessible, reports stated.

The network administrator told officers that someone is putting the icons on from an unknown location, and that he would call them when he finds out where they are being sent from, reports stated.
