Two male students, ages 18 and 19, were injured when the 18-year-old put his hand through a window early Monday in the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall.

David L. Mashow, 18, and Matthew W. Ricci, 19, who was hit by flying glass, were both treated for arm cuts at University Medical Center and released.

Mashow told police he was running and jogging on the third floor Arizona side of the hall when he ran into a study room window with his right arm.

Police noted Mashow's impact was strong enough to throw glass across the room.


An 18-year-old female bicyclist suffered minor injuries when she was hit by a Sun Tran bus Monday.

Stephany M. Cox, of the 1500 block of East Sixth Street, was treated at University Medical Center and released.

Cox reportedly was hit by the bus as she rode south on Cherry Avenue from University Boulevard about 8:34 p.m. The bus's driver, Russell M. Anderson, 50, of Wilcox, reportedly made a wide left turn onto Cherry and bumped her, sending her bike into the curb.

The bus driver said he did not see Cox until he saw her crash in his side mirror. Police noted that Cox did not have a bicycle light.

Cox suffered scrapes and soreness to her right side.

Anderson was cited for failure to control speed to avoid an accident. Cox was cited for riding without a light.


A man told police a man gave him a "blow job" in a Main Library restroom Friday.

Police said they did not know why the victim did not verbally or physically resist the advances.

The victim reportedly was using a third floor restroom when he heard someone performing oral sex on another person in the next stall.

The suspect entered the victim's stall and proceded to have oral sex with him. The police have not charged the man they think committed the sexual assault.
