Police arrested an 18-year-old student Wednesday for theft under $1,200 after she admitted to stealing her older sister's identification card.

Jody Soboleski, a resident of Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., was questioned by police after a resident assistant found the identification bearing Soboleski's 22-year-old sister's name and picture in a parking lot near the hall.

Soboleski told police she had stolen the identification from her sister when she was home visiting in October.

She was cited and released.

Police are investigating a report of a suspicious person after a female resident of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall said she was followed by a strange man Wednesday.

The student said she left the hall at 6:30 p.m. to go to the Student Union. She said she was walking alone on North Highland Avenue when a man "just jumped out" from the bushes and began walking very close behind her. She proceeded to Louie's Lower Level in the Student Union for dinner and, she said, the man sat two tables away from her and stared at her with a "blank look on his face."

After eating, the victim said she began walking back to her hall with the suspect following. She said she became frightened and started running. The man did not stop following her until she called to a male friend standing in front of her hall.

Police have no suspects.

A student reported the theft of his compact disc player and several compact discs from his car parked in a lot at East Sixth Street and North Cherry Avenue Wednesday.

The student said he parked the car in the lot at 9:50 a.m. to go to class and when he returned at 2:50 p.m. the front passenger window was smashed and the items missing. The items are valued at $475.

A 44-year-old homeless man was arrested Wednesday for criminal trespass after an employee of the Main Library found him sleeping in a men's bathroom.

John Hoarn, of a general delivery address, was found asleep in the downstairs men's bathroom. When police arrived they smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from Hoarn and said he had trouble standing up.

Hoarn has been cited in the past for criminal trespassing on UA property. He was taken to Pima County Jail for processing.
