Drunk in public
On Tuesday morning at approximately 12:30 a.m., the San Diego State Police Department responded to a call regarding a large African-American male who was approaching females near the 7-Eleven on College Avenue. The man was described as 6 feet tall, wearing a black shirt, dark shorts, glasses and a satchel. The man was suspected to be intoxicated and heading toward the SDSU Transit Center. Police arrived on the scene and found the man, who is not an SDSU student, and placed him under arrest for public intoxication.

Also occurring Tuesday was a bike theft reported at Cuicacalli Suites Residence Hall. The bicycle was an 18-speed, black and red Felt Q520 and was taken after its lock was cut. The bike  has lights on the front and back.
