A graduate student told a UA financial aid counselor Tuesday that she was going to kill herself after the adviser told her the amount of money the student was going to have to pay, reports stated.

The student was meeting with the counselor to try to get a tuition waiver. When the counselor detailed the potential tuition fees, the student became agitated, reports stated.

The student claimed that she had enough money, but was mugged by somebody that she knew. She then said, "I don't care, I'm just going to kill myself if I don't get into school now," reports stated.

The student said that she was seeing a psychiatrist two to three times per week and that she didn't want the financial aid counselor to call police after she threatened to kill herself. According to the police report, she said, "Don't call the police. They'll just take me and do what they did to me last time."

The student then walked out of the Administration building, 1401 E. University Blvd. The financial aid counselor called UAPD because she was afraid that the student would hurt herself, reports stated.

Police followed up with the student later and she said that she was ok and didn't want anyone coming out to her house. She was adamant in her request, reports stated.

When police officers went out to her house, nobody answered the door.

UAPD ended its investigation of the matter at that point and forwarded the matter to the Dean of Students Office.


A woman called UAPD after two members of the Sigma Alpha Fraternity, 1509 E. Second St., told her that she needed to leave the area on Tuesday, reports stated.

The woman had an earlier run-in with the two men on Sept. 20 after a minor car accident behind the chapter house, reports stated.

On that night, the fraternity member agreed to pay $100 in damages after he backed into her car. She called UAPD because she didn't feel comfortable. After police arrived, the fraternity member told her that she was not allowed on fraternity property, reports stated.

The woman then shoved him and police had to restrain her. The fraternity member declined to press charges, reports stated.

She also gave the fraternity member incorrect information about her car after the accident. An officer explained to the woman that people involved in accidents must give correct information to the other party. He also told her that fraternity houses are private property and members are welcome to insist that she stay off, reports stated.

On Tuesday, at 6:26 p.m., the woman was walking in the alley behind the fraternity house and the same two men told her, "You're not wanted here." According to the fraternity members, the woman began shouting obscenities at them. She called UAPD to document the incident, reports stated.

A UAPD officer told the fraternity members that the woman had the right to walk in the alley as long as she was not on the property.

The officer also told the woman that she should change the path she takes to avoid further altercations. The woman refused, reports stated.


A UA employee called police Tuesday after she found that someone had used her UA credit card to subscribe to a porn site, reports stated.

The employee at the University Services Building, 888 S. Euclid Ave., had locked the card in her desk drawer on Aug. 15. She received a bill on Sept. 15 that stated the card was used on Aug. 28 at a site called "Igormania" for $24.95.

The name used on the site was "Fakir Halilovic." The IP address was also given, reports stated.

The employee then looked in her desk drawer and found the card missing. She called the bank and found that there was a charge to a company called "Nevco" for $44.85 on Sept. 13 and an attempted purchase of $113 for cosmetics at an undisclosed location.

The second transaction was not allowed and the card had been deactivated, reports stated.

The employee's assistant was questioned, but said he did not use the card. Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.
