Indecent Exposure / Criminal Trespass: A male non-UT subject was reported by a UT student as being inside a 2nd floor womens restroom. The responding officer arrived and observed the same subject sitting on a bench located in a courtyard on the northeast side of the building. The subject had his shorts pulled to one side and was using one hand to engage in activity intended to arouse himself or another. The subject continued to engage in such activity as the officer approached him. In addition to other law enforcement action taken, the subject was issued a written criminal trespass warning.

Crime Prevention Tip:

The police rely on you to help us keep an eye out for suspicious or criminal activity. You also need to be made aware of the importance of prompt reporting of such activity to the police department. By quickly reporting the suspicious activity of the subject being in a womens restroom, the officer was able to meet with the reporting person in a timely manner and therefore was able to locate the subject before he finished what he was doing. This case illustrates that by helping us keep an eye on the campus and reporting criminal or suspicious activity, you too will make our campus a safe environment for the educational process. This partnership between you and the police is one example of the benefits of community policing.
