A security guard at the Student Union Memorial Center, 1212 E. University Blvd., called police Friday after two suspicious-acting men ran from him when he approached them, reports stated.

The security guard chased the students onto the UA Mall. The two split up, but the guard was able to catch one of them next to the Chemistry building, 1306 E. University Blvd. A UAPD officer arrived and handcuffed the student, reports stated.

When asked why he ran from the guard, the student admitted to drinking three beers earlier in the night, reports stated.

The officer had received a report of two suspicious-looking males near Coconino Residence Hall, 1003 N. Olive Rd. The student admitted that he and his friend were at the residence hall and had knocked on one of the windows. When asked why he was at the residence hall, the student said, "Because there are girls there," reports stated.

The student was cited with a minor in possession, charged and released. The other student was not found, but police have his name and address, reports stated.

A woman was arrested after she tried to steal an officer's motorcycle helmet on Sunday, reports stated.

The officer was parked at 1800 E. Speedway Blvd. when he received a call at 7:48 p.m. from another officer who had caught a woman taking the helmet off the police motorbike, reports stated.

When the officer asked the woman why she had taken his helmet, she said she thought it would be funny. She admitted that it was "dumb" and that she was sorry for taking the helmet. She also admitted that she had dropped the helmet on the ground, reports stated.

The officer noticed deep scratches in the $400 helmet and a dent that were not there when he had parked. The student was arrested for vandalism and released, reports stated.

The UAPD was called Sunday morning after a resident assistant at Manzanita/Mohave Residence Hall, 1010 N. Park Ave., noticed two concrete benches flipped over, reports stated.

The tops of the benches were left on the ground, and the legs were detached and left in the center of the entryway to the residence hall. The resident assistant and the responding officer moved the bench posts to their original positions, but could not pick up the heavy concrete bench tops, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses at this time, reports stated.

A resident of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house, 1435 E. Second St., called police Saturday after she noticed canned food and the house's master key were stolen, reports stated.

After reviewing the house, police noticed a cracked doorframe on the west entrance to the house. The resident said the crack was not there the night before, reports stated.

The house master key that was hanging near the door was removed along with $60 worth of canned goods from a small refrigerator. The resident speculated that the burglar had been in the house before, reports stated.

Police have no witnesses or suspects at this time, reports stated.

An employee working at the UA football game called the UAPD Saturday after he witnessed a boy vomiting in the north end bleachers, reports stated.

When an officer approached the boy, he continued to vomit. The officer also noticed that the boy had vomited on himself, reports stated.

The officer asked why the boy was sick and he said, "Because I drank too much." The boy presented an Arizona instructional driving permit, showing that he was 15 years old, reports stated.

The officer called an Emergency Medical Technician because the boy could not stop vomiting. The EMT cleared the boy medically. The officer cited the boy with a minor in consumption charge, reports stated.

The boy's mother was called to pick him up from the game, reports stated.

A fight broke out after a Delta Gamma date dash Saturday, leaving a bus with a broken window, reports stated.

The bus was parked at the corner of North First Street and East Martin Avenue at 11:15 p.m. when the fight broke out. The crowd dissipated when police arrived, leaving the sorority president and the bus driver, reports stated.

The driver was concerned about the broken windshield, which the president said she would pay for, reports stated.

There were no arrests made and no other details given. The bus driver drove off after getting contact information from the president.
