A man walked up to the front door of the Pi Beta Phi house, 1035 N. Mountain Ave., and showed everyone in the vicinity a dead cat Friday at 1:17 a.m., reports stated.

The man drove past the house several times alone in a maroon Jeep, then got out of the car to display the dead cat. He drove away with the cat hanging from his window, reports stated.

The man said nothing at all when he approached the house, and drove by several more times afterward.

An officer asked the women who reported the incident if they were sure it was a real cat and they said they were positive, reports stated.

Police searched the area but did not find the man.

The students also told police they were sure someone had the code to their front door, but were unaware of anyone entering the house without authorization.

The students were advised to change the code for safety reasons, reports stated.

A student's car window was broken and his Zone 1 permit stolen sometime Friday while the car was parked in a Zone 1 lot, 425 N. Fremont Ave., reports stated.

The student parked his car at 10:30 a.m., and when he returned at 5:25 p.m. he found the damage.

The student had no idea who may have stolen his permit. Nothing else was missing from the vehicle, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

A student's $650 bike was stolen from Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., sometime in the last three weeks, reports stated.

The student said he locked his bike with a U-Lock through the frame and front wheel on Aug. 5, and when he went to retrieve his bike Aug. 24 it was gone.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

A Coronado resident was transported to University Medical Center Thursday night after consuming large amounts of alcohol, cocaine and antidepressants, reports stated.

Coronado's hall director called police after the student's roommate reported that she had found what seemed like a suicide note from the student at 11:42 p.m.

The note said the student had done seven lines of cocaine and had a lot to drink the night before. The roommate told police the student was also on Zoloft and had seen her take a lot that night, reports stated.

The student had left the building on foot. Police found her near Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall, 922 E. Fourth St. When police asked her about the drugs, alcohol and "suicide letter," she said she had taken eight Zoloft tablets that day, and drank and did cocaine the night before, reports stated.

She said she wrote something like a suicide note, but was unclear about her intentions.

She told police she was terminally ill with cancer and didn't care much about what she was doing right now, reports stated.

She then told police she was feeling ill and required medical attention. Paramedics arrived and transported her to UMC.

Police provided the student with contact numbers for the Oasis Center and Student Heath Center for possible follow-up guidance, mental and emotional counseling.

A man found 24 .22 caliber spent ammunition rounds in a parking lot near the College of Nursing, 1224 E. Lowell St., at 7 p.m. Sunday, reports stated.

The man was walking through the parking lot when he noticed numerous spent rounds on the ground.

The rounds were in approximately the center of the parking lot. It is unknown how long they had been there and who put them there, reports stated.

Police placed the rounds in property and evidence. There are no suspects or witnesses.

A student reported a man to police after he yelled at her Friday by the Tyndall Avenue Garage, 880 E. Fourth St., only a few days after they met, reports stated.

She met the man Aug. 21 at Kaibab-Huachuca while she was waiting for a friend. The man stopped and introduced himself and they spoke for a bit before the student left with her friend, reports stated.

She saw the man again on East University Boulevard that day and a few days later in the union. Every time she saw the man, she said he was friendly.

When she was walking by the garage on Friday, she saw the man again and he asked her what she was doing. She told him she was "going to see a friend," and that she "couldn't hang out with him," reports stated.

The man got very angry and yelled, "You don't have to lie to me! I'm just being friendly." The student left the scene and hasn't seen the man since, reports stated.

The student had obtained a phone number for the man but did not want police to contact him. She said he had not made any threats to her, but she became frightened when he yelled at her, reports stated.
