    The woman told police he had harassed her the day before while she was leaving Hayden Library, police reported.

    Police saw surveillance of the man following the students and arrived at the scene as the two women ran into the Provisions on Demand market at the Hassayampa dorms, according to the report.

    The man waited outside the P.O.D Market while one woman called the police and the other talked to an officer standing in the Hassayampa Academic Village courtyard, police reported.

    The man shouted rap lyrics and chants during his arrest, according to the report.

    Police booked the man into 4th Avenue Jail, police reported.
