An elevator in the Science Library, located at 744 N. Highland Ave., has been damaged twice in the last two weeks.

The building monitor reported to UAPD that during the weekend of Sept. 16, metal braces or guard rails were damaged requiring replacement.

The people who repaired the elevator told the building monitor that it must have been done by several people swinging from side to side in the elevator. It is not believed damage could have been done by one person.

On Monday, the inner elevator plate was removed, exposing some internal wires. The plate was about eight feet off the elevator floor and had to be removed with a flat-head screwdriver.

It is unknown whether the two incidents are related.

A resident of Coconino Residence Hall received an obscene phone call from a suspect with a northern California phone number on Tuesday.

The victim told police that a male caller asked to speak to "Michelle." When she told the caller that no one with that name lived at that number, he began asking her about school and her hobbies.

The suspect, who called himself "Doug," asked the victim if she was sexually active. He then proceeded to ask her sexually explicit questions and told her he was masturbating.

The victim was able to get the caller's phone number and then confirm his voice mail at a northern California number.

The victim told police that other female residents of Coconino, located at 1003 N. Olive Road, have been receiving phone calls from Doug.

A member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house, located at 1443 E. First St., received a threatening phone message early Wednesday morning.

The message was left for the member at about 1:30 a.m. The unknown female voice said, "(Name withheld) you're a fucking bitch. You're going to die soon."

The victim said she has had the same phone number for two years and has never had a problem. The victim told police that she believes it is an isolated incident.

A $400 women's mountain bike was stolen from racks on the north side of Gila Residence Hall while the victim was in the computer lab for 10 minutes on Tuesday.

The victim U-locked her bike and then went into the lab at about 10:30 p.m. She noticed her bike was missing at 10:40 p.m.

When she came out of the lab she saw a male riding in the alley north of Gila, located at 1009 E. North Campus Drive. She was not sure if he was riding her bike.
