Man exposes himself to student at Stanford University residence hall

Incident took place at a common area of housing facility

A man exposed himself to a student at a Stanford University housing facility on campus late Tuesday night, according to school's Department of Public Safety.

At 11:57 p.m., the female student reported to authorities that a man trailed behind her as she went inside her residence hall on the west side of campus. He then exposed himself in a common area before he fled, but it's not clear which direction he went, public safety officials said.

The suspect was described as a dark-skinned, heavy-set man in his early 30s, stood about 5 feet 10 inches tall and had black hair, the department said.

He wore a black hooded sweatshirt and held a white towel, according to the department.

Anyone with information on the suspect or indecent exposure is asked to contact the Department of Public Safety.
