Kansas University Public Safety officers are investigating three reports of a man peeking into the showers of female KU students this week at Hashinger and McCollum halls, Capt. Schuyler Bailey said.
Bailey said the suspect has been described as a white male, 18 to 21 years old, 6-foot-3, with short, light-brown hair. He was wearing a red shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.
A woman reported a man looked into the shower stall while she was inside it Monday evening at Hashinger Hall in the fourth-floor north women’s restroom, and two similar reports were made Wednesday morning at McCollum Hall in west wing restrooms on the eighth and third floors, Bailey said. Both residence halls are on Daisy Hill, which is near 15th and Iowa streets.
A similar suspect was described to police in all three instances, police said, and the man was accused of opening the shower curtains and briefly watching the women showering. No physical contact was made, and no one was injured, Bailey said.
The man entered McCollum Hall by waiting around the entrance until someone left or entered the dorm to get through the open door, police said.
KU sent out a crime alert on the incidents Thursday morning asking for help identifying the suspect. Anyone with information in the case is asked to call KU Crime Stoppers at 864-8888.
