Police Dispatch 

Jack and Run

East River Road and North Craycroft Road, July 1, 2:36 a.m.

A woman glimpsed a man masturbating outside her bedroom window, a PCSD report stated.

The woman reportedly said she didn't get a good look at the shirtless man because she immediately closed her blinds and dialed the authorities.

A deputy inspected the area but didn't find anyone suspicious.


Closets are for Clothes

West Ina Road and North La Cholla Boulevard, July 3, 10:40 a.m.

Students at a local school complained to a teacher that one of her colleagues repeatedly shut them in a closet, according to report from the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

One day, a student reportedly made a comment to a female teacher about being detained in a male teacher's classroom closet at the Sonoran Science Academy, 2131 W. Ina Road. At first, the woman thought the boy--a known prankster--was joking, the record said.

Later, the boy commented about being stationed in the closet a little more than 90 minutes by the same man, the female teacher alleged. This time, she said, she asked the boy if he was sincere.

At this point, about six other students reportedly claimed they had either been placed in the closet by the male teacher or had seen him put someone in it.

The female teacher informed authorities that both she and the male teacher's closets have desks in them. The students reportedly told her that they were shut in there with instructions not to sit down, turn on the light or open the door--which, she said, doesn't have a lock.

The woman told authorities a child developed asthma from, she believed, either being locked in the closet or being threatened with it. She reportedly expressed concern for all the children at the school.

The female teacher was given a case number and the phone number to the Criminal Investigations Division.


Man the Water Pumps

University Area, July 11, 8:58 a.m.

For the third time since May, someone flooded a bathroom inside a locked University of Arizona building, according to a report from the University of Arizona Police Department.

A janitor reportedly found that the water was left running into a urinal drain--stuffed with paper towels--in a third-floor restroom at McClelland Hall, 1130 E. Helen St. The overflow also inundated a bathroom on the floor below, report noted.

A custodial manager said each act of vandalism occurred overnight. There were no witnesses.
