Suspicious e-mail sent

An employee reported that he received an e-mail Wednesday stating he is supposed to commit a crime today, reports stated.

At about 11:35 a.m., the employee told police he had received the suspicious e-mail while in his office at the Arizona Health Sciences Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

The employee told police he did not know the sender of the message or why he received it. He decided to report the incident after his supervisor advised him to do so.

The message read: "This message is simply a reminder of the crime you are to commit on December 6th at 9:00a.m. You should have carefully read over your mission plan and memorized all relevant information in order to carry out your mission. Remember, do not bring materials with you related to the crime and maintain your innocence at all times. Good luck. Dispose of this message once understood," reports stated.

Trespassing and disorderly conduct

A man sitting inside a convenience store was arrested for refusing to leave Wednesday, after he continually cursed at the store manager, reports stated.

At about 3 p.m., police made contact with the manager of the Texaco Star Mart, 501 N. Park Ave., who was standing next to a man who sat on the floor near the entrance of the store.

The manager said that the man on the floor had been asked to leave but continually refused. The manager told officers that he would be willing to press charges against the man for trespassing.

Police then asked the sitting man if he would be willing to leave. Police noticed the man had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled of intoxicants. The man remained silent when police asked him a second time to leave. The man then began to stare at the Texaco manager and said "Fuck you, you prick, cocksucker. I hate you," and other curse words, reports stated.

Police then helped the man to his feet and placed him under arrest for trespassing and disorderly conduct. The man continued to curse at the store manager throughout the arrest process.

Due to the man's inability to stand up on his own and his heavy smell of intoxicants, officers asked medical staff to check the man's health.

The Tucson Fire Department arrived, examined the man and told police he was medically cleared for transport. Police then took the man to Pima County Jail, where he was booked for criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct, reports stated.

Harassing letter sent

An employee reported Tuesday that she received a letter that read, "Asshole Bitch," but nothing else, reports stated.

At about 11:30 a.m., police went to the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St., and spoke with the employee. The employee told officers she received the letter, postmarked on Monday, from an unknown person.

The letter read, "Asshole Bitch," with nothing else written.

The employee said she does feel a little bit threatened by the letter. There are no suspects, reports stated.

Harassing instant messages sent

A student reported that she received harassing instant messages regarding a former friend Wednesday, reports stated.

At about 9:50 p.m., police met with the student in her dorm room at Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St. The student said she was on America Online when an unknown person sent her a message. The unknown author started a conversation about the student's former friend.

The author said if the student ever "did anything to fuck" her former friend over, he or she would "fuck" with the student.

The student said she had not talked with her formerfriend in about five months. The student told police her former friend also lived in Coronado on a different floor.

Police went to the former friend's room and spoke with her. The former friend said she did not know anything about the conversation, and did not know anyone with a screenname matching the unknown author's. Police noticed that the woman's computer was not on at the time they were in her room.

The student said she felt threatened by the messages and wanted to document the incident in case she receives future messages.

There are no suspects, reports stated.
