A Tucson man was assaulted in front of a residence at 910 E. Fifth St., Friday, UAPD reports stated.

The assault occurred after three unknown males told the man's girlfriend to leave with them. The man told the unknown men, "She's with me, so fuck off," reports stated.

One of the unknown men then punched the victim in the face, and then he and the other two unknown men left the scene, reports stated.

Two female UA students called police after their residence hall window was broken at 1:55 a.m., Monday, reports stated.

The students were in their room, in the Hopi Lodge Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fourth St., when one them heard a loud crash and realized that the window was broken, reports stated.

A witness to the crime saw an older white truck speed away from the scene on the east side of the dorm. The witness said that there were two people in the car that were laughing, reports stated.

Both the bottom and the top of the window were broken, and the screen was torn. It appeared to police as if something might have been thrown through it, but they were unable to locate any item, reports stated.

One of the students believed a former roommate might have been responsible for the damage. She referred to an argument that occurred approximately seven hours earlier. The student said that her ex-roommate owed her $100 toward a bill that they were sharing. When confronted the ex-roommate became aggressive and started yelling, reports stated.

The student said she felt threatened but that no physical threats had been made.

A residence assistant called emergency maintenance to repair the window, reports stated.

UAPD responded to a report of larceny at the Scoreboard Cafˇ, 540 N. Vine Ave., Monday, reports stated.

A UA employee reported that unknown suspects stole one of three menu signs that were posted outside the cafˇ. The sign cost $50, reports stated.

The Scoreboard Cafˇ sign, which is made of canvas, was also ripped at each end with a six-to-eight-foot-long piece of the sign missing, reports stated.

The employee was unable to provide any suspect information, reports stated.

A UA student was cited on charges of shoplifting from the UofA BookStore, 1209 E. University Blvd., Monday, reports stated.

The store's security supervisor saw, with the aid of surveillance cameras, the suspect carrying an electronic item. He later saw the same man, but this time he was not carrying any item. The supervisor watched the suspect go to the sales floor and throw away a package, reports stated.

The supervisor then went to the trash can and found a discarded microphone wrapper. The supervisor followed the suspect out of the exit and detained him. He took the student back to his office, and the student allegedly told him that he had stolen the item, reports stated.

The item, a Sony microphone valued at $84.47, was found in the student's backpack, reports stated.

The student told police that he needed the microphone for his class, but he took it because he didn't have the money to pay for it. He also said that he had never stolen before, reports stated.

He was cited and released.

A Marriott Hotel employee reported a damaged vehicle to UAPD Sunday, reports stated.

The employee notified police of a blue Mustang with a shattered driver's side window in the Main Gate Garage, 815 E. Second St.
