A student was assaulted after he left a party at the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, 1423 E. First St., at 3 a.m. Sunday, reports stated.

The student and a female student were invited to the house for the party and while they were there, the female student noticed a portrait composite, which belonged to a sorority, reports stated.

The female student told the fraternity members the composite did not belong to them and she wanted to return the composite to the sorority house.

The members told her she could not take the composite and the male student interjected and told the members to give her the composite, reports stated.

The fraternity members told the male student to leave their house and one of the members grabbed the arm of the male student, which left a bruise, reports stated.

The students walked outside to the stop sign at East First Street and North Highland Avenue and eight to 10 fraternity members followed them and assaulted the male student, reports stated.

The men pulled the student's jacket and sweatshirt over his head and hit and kicked him, the student told police.

The students were not sure they could accurately identify the men who assaulted him, but all were white males.

The student's only visible injury was the bruise on his arm.

The composite was returned to the sorority house later that day, reports stated.

A student's $2,000 mountain bike was stolen from the west side of the Shantz Building, 1200 E. South Campus Dr., sometime Monday afternoon, reports stated.

The student said he locked his bike with a U-lock through the front tire and frame at 2:40 p.m. When he returned from class at 3:45 p.m. his bike was gone, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

Two students ran down East First Street naked and were arrested at East Second Street and North Cherry Avenue, at 10:33 p.m. Monday, reports stated.

A woman called police to report she saw the men running in the parking lot with their clothes in hand and genitals exposed. The men waved at the woman and kept running, reports stated.

Police contacted the students, who had put their clothes back on, and both said they were pledges of Phi Gamma Delta, reports stated.

Police could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the men's mouths and the men admitted to taking shots of whiskey at the Phi Gamma Delta House, reports stated.

Both men admitted to removing all their clothing, except their shoes and socks, and running naked down the street, reports stated.

The men said the streaking was not provoked by the fraternity, reports stated.

Both men were searched and handcuffed before being placed in a patrol car.

Officers found fictitious licenses on the men, reports stated.

The men were arrested for indecent exposure, underage drinking and possession of a fictitious license and were transported to the Pima County Jail, reports stated.

A man was arrested for assault and criminal trespassing after he was forcibly removed from the UA football game in the Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., at 5:45 p.m. Saturday, reports stated.

Police entered the Red Zone of the stadium after hearing reports of someone throwing objects on the field.

The officer approached the man who denied throwing any objects and the officer asked him to leave the stands to talk more extensively about the matter, reports stated.

The man refused to leave the bleachers with the officer and the man began to argue with the officer and refused to listen to his commands to leave, reports stated.

Several other audience members in the area were screaming and yelling at the officer because of the situation with the man, reports stated.

Because of the unsafe situation the officer was in, he tried to remove the man as soon as possible.

He continued to order the man to leave and tried to manually escort him by grabbing his arm and placing it behind his back, reports stated.

The man violently resisted and pulled away from the officer striking his arms and hands with his elbow, reports stated.

The officer continued to try to remove the man but he kept twisting and pulling away, reports stated.

Two officers were able to force the man to leave the bleachers by handcuffing him and escorting him out of the stadium.

The man's daughter, a minor, was returned to his side at his request, reports stated.

The man was cited and released. He was told not to re-enter the stadium and was not transported to jail in the best interest of his daughter.

The officer suffered two jammed fingers and a sprained thumb, reports stated.
