A car windshield, a window at the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house, 638 E. University Blvd., and a window at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house, 645 E. University Blvd., were all damaged around the same time early Saturday morning, reports stated.

When police arrived, they saw a hollow cat statue next to the broken car window, which looked like it had been used to break the window.

Tucson Police Department was also in the area and said they had gotten similar complaints about vandalism and were using their air unit to search for the suspect.

Police next went to the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity where they found a large rock at the bottom of the stairs that looked like it had been used to break the window.

Police went across the street to the Beta Theta Pi fraternity where a student told them he heard a beer bottle break through the kitchen window. Police found a bottle of Bud Light in the kitchen, reports stated.

Police then found someone who matched the description of the suspect. The man told police he had broken the window at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity but didn't know anything about the broken windshield or the broken window at Alpha Gamma.

The man said he had broken Beta Theta's window because they had been mean to his friends and were "dickless." The man then said, "Fuck them; they are all assholes," reports stated.

Police found no evidence linking the man to the other broken windows.

The man was cited and released.

Two students and a homeless person were hit by eggs Monday night while they were at Circle K, 1610 E. Sixth St., reports stated.

When police arrived, they were told the students and the homeless person had been hit by three males in a silver van.

Police went to look for the van, and while they were gone, the van drove by Circle K again and yelled something at the two students.

One of the students said he had been hit in the shoulder and showed police the spot, which was red and swollen. The student said he wished to press charges, reports stated.

The other student told police he did not wish to press charges and left. The homeless person told police he had been hit in the back and wanted to press charges. The homeless person said he could not provide an address to police. Police were not able to identify him because he gave them several different Social Security numbers. The homeless person then decided not to press charges and left, reports stated.

Police were able to find the silver van, and the three males all admitted to throwing the eggs.

The driver of the van told police he did not have a driver's license. He was cited for disturbing the peace and driving without a license. The other two males were both juveniles. They were cited for disturbing the peace and released to their mothers, reports stated.

A student and her friend were followed by a man they didn't know on March 26, while studying at the Main Library, 1500 E. University Blvd., reports stated

The student told police she and her friend listened to the man for about 10 minutes before deciding to leave the library.

The student said she and her friend went into the bathroom for about 10 minutes to try to get the man to stop following them.

When the student and her friend got out of the bathroom, the man followed them to Cherry Street Garage, reports stated.

The man asked the student out to dinner, and she told him to leave her alone.

The man then asked for a ride home, and when the student told him no, he finally walked away.

An employee of the Family and Consumer Sciences building, 1110 E. South Campus Drive., got a harassing e-mail from a student Monday around noon, reports stated.

The employee told police the student used to be the chair of Students in Free Enterprise, but resigned after having conflicts with two other students in SIFE.

The employee said the student continued to show up to SIFE events and meetings after being asked not to, reports stated.

The student left an away message on his computer that said, "To all you guys that have been treating me like shit: Watch out, payback is coming and it is going to be a bitch!"

The employee told police she did not want the student returning to the center unless he was on official business.

The Dean of Students Office told police they would send the student a letter telling him not to return to the building, reports stated.

All four tires on a Honda Civic were stolen sometime between Saturday and Sunday while the Honda was parked in Tyndall Garage, 880 E. Fourth St., reports stated.

Police discovered the car around 2 a.m. on Sunday. They saw the Honda was jacked up, and all the tires were gone.

When police contacted the owner of the Honda, she told police she had parked her car around 8 p.m. the previous night.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.
