A man who had previously been ordered to stay off University of Arizona property was again arrested for trespassing.

Gabriel Herrera, 24, approached two female students at about 8 p.m. Monday near North Mountain Avenue and East First Street.

Herrera “asked the students some questions which made them feel uncomfortable,” Officer Jose Bermudez, spokesman for the UA Police Department, said in a news release.

The students went inside their home, but a short time later, Herrera knocked on their door and asked if he could “hang out,” Bermudez said.

Because of a previous incident of trespassing, a court order prohibits Herrera from being on any UA property, Bermudez said.

He was booked into the Pima County jail and faces charges of loitering and criminal trespassing.
