South Nogales Highway, Feb. 28, 2:18 p.m.
A young girl violently attacked her mother and threatened suicide when denied sleepover privileges, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.
The reporting deputy found the girl in her home sitting calmly at a computer, and quickly handcuffed her. The subject admitted slapping her mother twice in the face and once in the back. When her father chased her, she said, she locked herself in the bathroom, grabbed a knife and threatened to slit her wrists. Asked why she did all this, she asserted that her mother had refused to let her spend the night at a friend's house.
The girl's parents told a similar story--but with a bit more violence involved, stating that the girl kicked, not slapped, her mother in the back, and kicked her "in the crotch" when she tried to get up.
The girl was arrested for disorderly conduct and domestic violence/assault.
South Kolb Road, Feb. 23, 3:27 p.m.
A man reportedly threatened his wife with a car accident and tried to injure her neck while driving, according to a PCSD report. Speaking to the victim by phone, a deputy learned that she had been with her common-law husband for 24 years and was currently living with him in a trailer. They had lived together for the past 10 years, the victim said, but lately, her partner had been making ominous, threatening statements--namely, that they could be in an "awful car accident someday while they were driving down the road." The reportee explained that she was afraid of an accident because of a prior neck injury and surgery. Occasionally, the victim stated, when they were in the car, and her partner was driving, he would slam on the brakes, in what she considered attempts to re-injure her neck. She described her partner as a "bipolar-type person."
The reporting deputy suggested the victim get an order of protection and move back to Colorado, where she was from, without him.

An amorous criminal left a heartwarming, if illegal, message on University of Arizona property, a UAPD report said.
A UA officer performing a building check located graffiti painted on the sidewalk at the end of the loading dock between the anthropology building and the Arizona State Museum South. About 6 inches by 8 inches, the red-paint graffiti appeared to depict two women embracing each other. The message below the image was: "I love you."
Photos were taken and placed into evidence.
