A student told police she received sexually harassing phone calls Tuesday morning, reports stated.

She told police she was in her residence hall at 4:50 a.m. when a man called and spoke to her about sexually explicit subjects.

After she hung up the phone, the man called back approximately seven times within the next 40 minutes. He would not leave a message on the student's voicemail.

The student attempted to trace the calls but was unsuccessful.

She told officers she didn't feel threatened and thought it was a prank. She doesn't want to prosecute, but wants the incident documented.

There are no suspects or witnesses.

Two students told police they received sexually harassing phone calls at their residence hall Tuesday night, reports stated.

The caller made the first phone call at 10 p.m., but the students hung up the phone when the caller began to breathe heavily and moan.

He called again seven minutes later and said "Hi, this is Mark," while panting and moaning. The students hung up the phone after they realized it was the same man, reports stated.

The students were told how to trace the calls. They do not want to prosecute.

A wallet was turned in to the University of Arizona Police Department Tuesday, reports stated.

The leopard-skin wallet contained an Arizona driver's license, a health insurance card, a bank card, a silver key and a miscellaneous key. Officers were unable to contact the owner of the wallet. The property will be stored at UAPD, 1852 E. First St., until the owner picks it up.

A student's car was broken into at a campus residence hall over the weekend, reports stated.

The woman told police she parked her car Saturday night in the lot north of the Babcock Inn, 1717 E. Speedway Blvd. When she returned Sunday afternoon, she found her vehicle unlocked with the ignition badly damaged, reports stated.

No items were taken from the student's vehicle, but she was unable to start her car. Police were able to get one fingerprint off the window, reports stated.

There are no suspects or witnesses.

A student's truck was stolen from a campus garage Tuesday, reports stated.

The student parked his car Monday afternoon at the Park Avenue Garage, 1140 N. Park Ave. When he returned early Tuesday morning, the car was gone.

He told police he didn't notice any broken glass on the ground and said he has a steering wheel anti-theft device but wasn't using it when the vehicle was stolen.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department found the truck Tuesday afternoon at Morning Glory Drive and Bright Terrace Road, reports stated.

The vehicle was towed and stored, and the student was told of the vehicle's recovery.

There are no suspects or witnesses.
