Police give warnings after Downtown Campus assaults

Pima Community College recently issued a pair of warnings after assault incidents on or near Downtown Campus.

According to PCC police, a man approached a student in the campus parking lot Nov. 13 and asked the student if his vehicle had any weapons, money or food.

When the student retreated to his vehicle, the man followed and attempted to gain entry into the student’s vehicle, the warning said. The man then continued through the parking lot and at one point threw rocks at three family members.

The man, identified by police as Kurt Wagner, was arrested, but made comments about returning to campus and hurting the victims in the case, according to the warning. Police said Wagner appeared impaired.

The next day, a PCC officer on foot patrol noticed a man who appeared to be in distress walking across the campus’ east parking lot with another male and a female who were assisting him.

The man told the officer he had been stabbed in the chest near the Circle K at 130 E. Speedway Blvd., across the street from Downtown Campus.

The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He told police he had been stabbed by an unknown person over an alcoholic beverage.
