Police Beat: January 15
A UA student was found passed out in a construction site, with vomit in her hair and on the ground next to her. She was taken to the University Medical Center at 1:24 a.m. on Jan. 10.
A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the site, located at Second Street and Warren Avenue, after being contacted by a construction zone security guard. Upon arrival, the employee led the UAPD officer to a muddy, fenced-off area where the woman was lying. She was identified through the contents of
her purse, which were strewn about the area.
Emergency responders determined she was extremely intoxicated, but due to her unresponsiveness, police were unable to determine how much alcohol she had consumed. Tucson Fire Department arrived to evaluate the woman and concluded she needed to be taken to UMC.
In a follow up later that morning by UAPD, staff said she was intoxicated and sleeping, but would be released later that day.
All signs point to no one
A non-UA affiliated man was assaulted and threatened by a man he didn’t know in the Student Union Memorial Center at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 10. The man contacted UAPD at 6 p.m. about the incident.
The man was at the SUMC holding a sign that read “Homo Sex is Sin.” He said he had permission to be on campus. While holding the sign, another man approached him from behind and aggressively ripped the sign from his hands, then ran off with it.
The man then chased the assailant and was able to retrieve his sign. The man who’d stolen the sign said he would return, hurt the man and cut up his sign. He had scissors in his hands, which the reporting man believed were to cut the sign but if aggravated enough was afraid may be used as a weapon.
UAPD then looked for cameras or witnesses in the surrounding area that would have caught the altercation but were unable to locate any. The man said he wishes to press charges if the suspect is found.
