Police Dispatch

Driving Without Pants

University Area, Jan. 30, 11:22 a.m.

According to a University of Arizona Police report, officers arrested a man after he allegedly exposed himself to two female students.

The student told police that they were walking on campus when the man began following them in a car. The students said the man repeatedly pulled in front of them, waited for them to pass and then pulled ahead of them again.

The students told police they approached the man's car when they noticed he had pulled over because they thought he might be "someone's lost grandpa." The man was allegedly naked from the waist down, with his flaccid penis exposed.

The students called police and got the man's license plate number as he drove off.

Officer Sheopner stopped a car with a matching license plate number near North Park Avenue and East Sixth Street. When the officer approached the vehicle, the driver, Ralph F. Seymour, 61, was fully clothed, but allegedly had an open bottle of rum lying on the passenger seat.

Police picked the students up at their dorm and drove them to the scene. They identified Seymour as the man who wasn't wearing pants.

Seymour denied exposing himself, but reportedly admitted drinking a little bit of the rum.

Seymour couldn't produce any identification. He was arrested and taken to Pima County Jail on suspicion of indecent exposure, failing to provide ID, having an open container of alcohol in a car and disturbing an educational institution, the report stated.

Canine Teasing

South Wilmot Road and East Andrada Road, Jan. 20, 4: 09 p.m.

According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report, deputies told a Green Valley woman they couldn't take action against her neighbors who have been allegedly teasing her dogs.

The woman said her neighbors have been making her dogs bark by approaching the house quietly and then yelling from the road as they get close. She said the barking disturbs her entire family.

Deputy Copelin told the woman that it isn't illegal as long as her neighbors stay on the public road or easement.

The woman didn't know her neighbors' names and couldn't tell Copelin the exact time or dates of the disturbances.

Copelin did tell the woman she may be able to take action against her neighbors through the Justice Court in Green Valley if she learns their names.

Racist Graffiti

West Wetmore Road and North Romero Road, Jan 19, 7: 50 p.m.

Somebody spray painted the words "white power" and made anti-Semitic markings on a wall in a northwest neighborhood, a PCSD report stated.

A homeowner in the neighborhood saw the swastika and other racist graffiti and called deputies.

Deputies documented the incident and the homeowner said he would call a local organization that cleans graffiti.
