Two residents of Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., received two obscene phone calls from an unknown man between April 22 and Thursday, reports stated.

The first student received a phone call on April 22 at 12:30 p.m., and the unknown man asked the student if she would be willing to participate in a survey on initiation processes for clubs. The student agreed to the survey, reports stated.

The student said the survey started out very professionally, and the man asked her questions like "How do you define initiation?" and " Have you ever participated in initiation?" reports stated.

Then the survey turned into a description of the man trying to enter an all-female club, reports stated.

The man started to describe his initiation experiences of being forced to be naked, spanked and ridiculed, reports stated.

The student tolerated the conversation for a little while but then interrupted the man to ask him to identify himself. The man refused and hung up, reports stated.

Another student said she received a similar phone call, but she had hung up before the man started talking about nudity and spanking, reports stated.

Neither student dialed *57 afterward to try to trace the calls, reports stated.

The students could not think of a possible suspect who could have called, reports stated.

Both students did not want to press charges, but they said if a suspect were found, they would like him to be told not to call them again, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

A student saw a man trying to open a U-Lock on a bike with a hammer and screwdriver Thursday afternoon outside of the Modern Languages building, 1423 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

The owner of the bike has not been contacted.

When he returned at 2:20 p.m., the laptop was missing from his desk, reports stated.

The laptop was sitting out in plain view and was plugged into the wall, reports stated.

The employee asked other people around if they had seen anyone suspicious in the area, and they said they had not, reports stated.

The third floor of the building is open to anyone, and any number of people could have passed by the employee's office when the laptop was stolen, reports stated.

The employee was told to contact UAPD if he received any further information.
