The University Police are investigating an incident that occurred in Kapoor Hall on June 10 and a second incident that occurred in Diefendorf Hall on June 24. In both incidents, witnesses reported observing an Asian male entering women’s restrooms. Witnesses report that the subject may have been attempting to photograph women in the first incident. Video images were captured of a possible suspect from the Kapoor Hall incident. These images are posted on the University Police website at http://www.student-affairs.buffalo.edu/public-safety/know.php. The University Police are actively working on determining the subject’s identity.

In what appears to be an unrelated matter, an individual similar in description was arrested on June 24 in Diefendorf Hall for harassment of a female employee.

While the investigation into these incidents continues, members of the university community are urged to be vigilant at all times. University Police have increased patrols in the area.

Members of the university community are encouraged to report any unusual circumstances or suspicious persons/activities to the University Police as soon as possible.
