A student received two suspicious phone calls from an unknown person at Navajo Residence Hall, 1557 E. Sixth St., on Jan. 26 and Monday, reports stated.

The student told police on Jan. 26 and Monday at 2 p.m., he received a phone call in his room, reports stated.

The man on the phone told him he qualified for an $8,000 grant, reports stated.

On both occasions the student told the caller he did not apply for a grant and asked the caller to send him the application, reports stated.

The caller told the student he could not do that, but all they needed was his bank information to receive the money, reports stated.

The student told the man that he would not do that unless they mailed him the application, reports stated.

The student told police on both occasions the man disconnected the line, but on the second call he attempted *57. However, a voice recording said the call could not be traced, reports stated.

The student told police both calls came from a man with a heavy Middle Eastern accent, reports stated.

Police told the student to watch his bank accounts closely and report any further suspicious calls, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.


A student's car was spray painted while parked in a Zone 1 lot, 520 N. Euclid Ave., sometime between Jan. 25 and Sunday, reports stated.

An unknown male shot a paintball at a student from the fourth level of the Sixth Street Parking Garage, 1201 E. Sixth St., Sunday evening, reports stated.

The student told police she was walking east on the sidewalk of Sixth Street when she heard a noise coming from the garage, reports stated.

She looked up and saw a man with a gun, reports stated.

The student told police she thought he was shooting at her, so she ran into the parking garage, reports stated.

She then saw a white paintball mark on the sidewalk and realized the man was shooting at her with a paintball gun, but had missed her, reports stated.

She began yelling at him, calling him an "asshole." The shooter then left the area, reports stated.

The student did not get a good look at the shooter since his face was behind the gun, reports stated.

She told police she did not report the incident for two hours because she did not think it was a big deal because it was only a paintball gun, reports stated.

Police searched the fourth floor of the parking garage and the entire sidewalk along the parking garage and found no evidence of a discharged paintball, reports stated.

Police have no other witnesses or suspects.
