Warning concerning suspicious packages

Suspicious package

Campus Security is advising the University community not to touch or handle any suspicious package and call Campus Security at 956-6911 immediately.


Announcement

Campus Security is warning people who are walking to and from their cars parked in the residential area between University Avenue and Mānoa Road to be aware of a male driver who stops pedestrians, especially female students, on the pretense of asking for driving directions, who then exposes himself and masturbates.

Today around noon, a student reported to Campus Security that she and a friend were walking to their car near College Hill, when a male driver stopped his vehicle to ask for directions to the freeway. The suspect spoke very softly, so the student moved closer to the car to better hear what he was saying. When the student looked down through the open window, she saw that the driver had exposed himself and was masturbating. The driver sped off when the student walked away.

The suspect is described as in his 40s, with short blond hair and mustache, possibly weighing about 150 pounds. He wore a white shirt, khaki shorts and sunglasses. He may have been driving a "green Jeep or small SUV."

In an incident of this nature, Campus Security suggests the following:

Be aware of your surroundings and trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, in any situation, act on that feeling. Your safety is the first priority.

If you find yourself in this type of situation, even if the suspect has left the scene, call Campus Security and officers will respond to your location.

Anyone with information relevant to this case is asked to call Campus Security at 956-6911.
