A female student reported that a man exposed himself to her when she was walking on the sidewalk. He was described as a white male, wearing white shoes, a white hat and a dark shirt. UPD searched the area, found the man and detained him. Though he was dressed when they found him, his zipper was down. He denied any wrongdoing, but after the student came down to UPD and positively identified him, he was barred from campus and turned over to Metropolitan Police.

A student was trying to get an employee to lift a registration hold on his account. The employee said the student was trying to persuade her to “do him a favor.” When she refused, he threw the things that she had on her desk on the floor.

Two individuals, a male and a female, were attending a concert at Lisner Auditorium and taking pictures of the performers.
