Man bothers studious female with strange advances

A female undergraduate student reported being bothered by an unidentified male suspect while studying in the level B stacks in Rush Rhees Library, according to Lafferty.

The student called security last Tuesday between 9 and 9:30 p.m. She reported that the suspect had bothered her in stages. First, he walked past her. A few minutes later, the suspect returned, only to move a trash can near the victim away from the wall. Following this, he left again.

The suspect returned a few minutes later. According to the victim, he hid around a corner and continually peeked at the student, which she found quite alarming. At one point he lifted his shirt, then took it off.

After the flashing, the victim left the area and notified security. Responding officers checked the surrounding areas for the suspect, with negative results.
