The permit was last seen in her truck on Sept. 25. The woman did not realize it was missing until Monday, reports stated.

A student called UAPD Monday after he noticed charges on his lost Wells Fargo debit card, reports stated.

The student last saw the card after leaving it in an ATM in the Student Union Memorial Center, 1303 E. University Blvd., on Aug. 30. He realized that he had left the card in the machine minutes later, but when he returned, the card was gone, reports stated.

The student cancelled his card on Sept. 2. On his most recent bank statement, he noticed a charge for $59.95 placed the same day he lost the card, reports stated.

Police have no witnesses or suspects, reports stated.

A student reported his bicycle stolen on Monday after he parked it for two hours at the Slonaker House, 1027 E. Second St., reports stated.

The student gave the serial number to the police. Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A resident of Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall, 1010 N. Park Ave., called police after she received a harassing phone call, reports stated.

An unknown male called the resident at 4:15 p.m. and asked if he could talk to her. He then asked, "Can I finish what I'm doing," reports stated.

The man then said that he was masturbating. The resident hung the telephone up and called police, reports stated.

Police told the woman to call UAPD if the man calls again. Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A UA student was arrested for DUI after she backed into another car Saturday that was parked at 1713 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

When police arrived in the area, the man who called pointed the woman out. When the officer was speaking to her, he smelled alcohol on her breath and noticed her eyes appeared red and watery, reports stated.

The woman admitted to drinking earlier in the day and agreed to a field sobriety test. She also said that she was only driving her car for "two seconds" when she hit the man's car, reports stated.

After conducting the field sobriety test, the officer brought the woman to UAPD headquarters for a breathalyzer test. The woman blew a .292, reports stated.

The woman was charged with DUI, extreme DUI and property damage for breaking the man's taillight, reports stated.

A woman began shouting racist comments and abusive words to another woman who had accidentally dented her Ford Mustang on Sunday, reports stated.

The woman's Mustang was parked in front of Cold Stone Creamery, 1927 E. Speedway Blvd., when another driver came into the store to report that she had accidentally hit the Mustang with the door of her Ford Explorer, reports stated.

After reporting the incident, the Mustang owner began yelling at the woman with the Explorer, who was with two young children. According to witnesses, she was yelling racial slurs at the other woman because she was Hispanic, reports stated.

The Explorer owner took her children and left. The reporting officer recorded that the Mustang owner was yelling and screaming at him while he was talking to her, reports stated.

She said she got upset because the Explorer owner and her guests looked suspicious. The officer asked why she thought they were suspicious and she said, "Because they were Mexican," reports stated.

Upon inspecting the Mustang, the officer noticed a 1-inch dent in the passenger side panel, reports stated.
