A resident of Arizona-Sonora Hall reported receiving a threatening e-mail message after someone poured sour milk on his carpet the day before.

The resident said he and his roommate went to sleep in their fourth floor room at 2:30 a.m. Monday, and heard a door slam shortly after, but did not think anything of it. When the resident woke up at 7 a.m., he found a half gallon of soured, curdled milk on the carpet. The milk had completely soaked the carpet, and the damaged areas had to be cut out to get rid of the smell.

Other residents said they heard the door slam and then heard footsteps before a stairwell door was heard opening at about 3 a.m.

The victim was ready to ignore the incident until he checked his e-mail at 12:20 a.m. Tuesday and found a threatening message. It read, "We're going to get you, you God damned fucking faggot. Guess who did the milk thing you fucking Jew!!!!! Better lock your fucking door." The message showed the address it was sent from as "Hitler@Hell.com."

The University of Arizona's Center for Computing and Information Technology was contacted to try to trace the e-mail message.

A $25 wall clock was stolen from Cafe Sonora in the Student Union over the weekend.

An employee called police and reported the 18-inch circular clock was last seen Friday at 8 p.m. When employees returned to open the restaurant Monday at 6:30 a.m., the clock was gone.

Cafe Sonora's dining room is open for use by Fidlee Fig customers during the weekends, and the employee said the clock may have been taken during business hours.
