No More Digging

East Orange Grove and North Oracle Roads, Sept. 13, 8:35 a.m.

An angry apartment dweller sprayed construction workers with water from her balcony, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

A construction supervisor reported that the woman had earlier refused to leave their work site, despite warnings that her standing near heavy machinery was a safety hazard. The woman complained that their digging with a backhoe would ruin cacti she had planted years ago, the supervisor added.

She finally did leave, the supervisor said, only to reappear on her balcony with a hose. He alleged that she hollered and swore as she showered them with water whenever they attempted to dig.

The woman agreed to turn off her hose when a deputy went to her apartment, but refused to talk. She said through her closed front door that the construction workers were on her property.

The deputy reminded her that she doesn't own the apartment complex and added that further harassment would result in legal action.

Free Fertilizer

UA Area, Sept. 28, 2:53 p.m.

Custodial staff at University Medical Center reported a man for defecating in an indoor flower bed, according to a University of Arizona Police Department report.

An officer talked to the man as he sat outside the Arizona Cancer Center smoking. He said he had been waiting in triage and denied ever having his pants off inside the building.

However, a custodial employee told an officer that he had seen the man defecate. The employee said he cleaned up the feces and toilet paper that the man left behind when he was done.

The officer escorted the man back to triage and instructed him to remain there until he was seen. The report said, without elaborating, that no arrest was made due to the man's medical and mental condition.

Iron Will

East Colossal Cave Road and Interstate 10, Sept. 15, 4:03 p.m.

A 10-year-old schoolgirl didn't tell anyone when a boy stabbed her for the third time with a pencil, a PCSD report stated.

The girl's father found the scabbed and bruised thigh wound after his daughter complained of pain.

The girl told deputies that the boy in question had speared her on two previous occasions, in the chest and on the wrist.

The father was unable to reach school officials to report the incidents.
