Tempe Police reported the following incidents Thursday:


A 20-year-old Tempe man was arrested Sunday at an apartment complex on the 500 block of West Baseline Road on suspicion of criminal trespassing, according to a police report.

A female resident, who was asleep in her bedroom, woke up when she heard noise in the living room, police reported.

The woman saw the man stumbling through her second floor balcony door and onto the couch where he fell asleep, according to the report.

The woman locked herself in the bathroom and called police because she had never met the man, police reported.
