Sequins Are Tasty

West Wetmore Road and North La Cholla Boulevard, Jan. 20, 3:19 p.m.

A teacher reported a boy for biting a female student twice on the chest, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The teacher said the children were eating snacks when the girl tried to show the boy some sequins on her shirt. Witnesses alleged that the boy then leaned over and bit her.

The teacher and a supervisor checked the girl and found two red marks near her left nipple.

When asked about the incident, the boy allegedly said he wanted a sequin from the shirt the girl was wearing.

Target Practice

UA Area, Jan. 30, 7 p.m.

According to a University of Arizona Police Department report, a woman walking down the street claimed she was shot at by a man with a paintball gun standing in a parking garage.

The woman told police she looked up when she heard a loud noise coming from the garage structure and noticed a man with a gun. Thinking he was shooting bullets at her, she ran.

She then saw a white mark on the sidewalk, the report said, and realized it was a paintball gun the man was firing.

The woman said she called the man an "asshole" and kept walking. She couldn't provide a detailed description of him because the gun was obscuring his face, she told police.

There were no other witnesses at the time of the report. Officers searched, but were unable to find paintball splatters on the sidewalk.

Dog Damage

West Irvington Road and South Camino De Oeste, Jan. 19, 11:29 a.m.

A woman discovered that a small dog someone had left in her unlocked car chewed up portions of the vehicle's interior, a PCSD report said.

The woman said she heard knocking at her door early in the morning, but didn't answer it. About three hours later, she went to her car and noticed the animal.

After releasing the dog, the woman saw claw and scratch marks on an armrest and both rear doors. She also said she was unable to start her car and feared the dog may have gnawed through some wires under the car's dash.

A deputy examined the dash and ignition, but didn't find any signs of damage. There were no clues, such as prints, to indicate who might have been responsible for abandoning the dog.
