The University police issued a campus crime alert Saturday night after two South Quad residents awoke that morning to find an unknown man in their room.
The man apparently entered the room through the door, which was left ajar, police said.
After the man left at about 11 a.m., the students discovered some items, including a wallet and MP3 player, were missing. The suspect appeared to have been unarmed.
Police spokeswoman Diane Brown said that when one of the students awoke, there was a “verbal exchange that included the guy saying he was looking for a particular person.” When the resident responded that he didn’t know who the person was, the suspect left the room.
The suspect was described as a five-foot-10 black male in his 30’s with a stocky build, short, black hair and a full medium-length beard. He was reported as wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and carrying a dark-colored backpack.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call 734-763-1131.
