In the first incident the suspect knocked on the door of a female resident in Crosby Hall before 3 p.m. on Nov. 12, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.

The minor asked the student if he could talk with her because he was trying to meet some female students.

The students told the suspect that he was making them feel uncomfortable.

The suspect’s name matched that one previously obtained from the female student, according to Security.

The suspect was arrested by the Rochester Police Department for trespassing.

He is banned from returning to the UR campus, according to UR Security.
