Police Dispatch

Paint Fight

West Valencia and South Mission roads, Nov. 15, 1:06 a.m.

A man, dripping with paint and suffering from a bleeding welt on the side of his head, phoned authorities from a neighbor's house to say that his wife had attacked him, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The man said his wife had thrown a party and then locked him out, forcing him to sleep in his car. He then moved to the shed behind the house and fell asleep, he told a deputy.

He alleged that his wife entered the shed while he was sleeping and hit him with paint cans until he was able to run away.

The wife countered that her inebriated husband had been assaulted before he came home, and that he had gotten paint all over himself from stumbling around the shed. She added that paint was on her clothes because she had tried to help clean up the mess.

A deputy noted pools of paint and a small amount of blood in the shed, leading him to believe that the assault had occurred there.

The man was transported to St. Mary's Hospital for injuries to his ribs. No arrests were made at the time of the report.

Rude Awakening

UA Area, Nov. 29, 1:52 a.m.

A woman sleeping in her dorm room said she was awakened by an unidentified man kicking her in the face and abdomen, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

The woman said she fled her fourth-floor room at Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., after the incident, returning moments later to inform her still-sleeping roommate what had happened.

Officers escorted the woman to her room after she had relayed events to them in the dorm lobby. The woman pointed out a man waiting for an elevator as the suspect when they arrived at the fourth floor.

Police arrested the man, who reportedly refused to answer questions from anyone except "the man in charge."

He later said he was visiting a friend, but would not provide a name, the report stated. The man added that he was looking for a bathroom and would not assault any women on campus, because his sister is a student.

Police said the man's breath smelled like liquor and his eyes were bloodshot, but he was not under the influence of alcohol.

The man was charged with aggravated assault and criminal trespass, and transported to Pima County Adult Detention Center.

Not Amused

West Overton and North Thornydale roads, Nov. 17, 10:47 a.m.

A teenage girl wasn't thrilled after she heard that a friend had used her name when she was issued a ticket for underage drinking, a PCSD report stated.

The girl told a PCSD telephone operator that a mutual friend told her the suspect showed her the ticket, pointed to the name and asked, "Isn't that funny?"

The alleged victim said she hadn't spoken to the girl, who had moved to Chandler, since September.
