Voyeurism fears at Md. cam­puses

The Washington Post Sunday - - METRO - BY MARTIN WEIL AND MICHAEL ALI­SON CHAN­DLER martin.weil@wash­post.com michael.chan­dler@wash­post.com

A stu­dent was show­er­ing Thurs­day at the Univer­sity of Mary­land in Col­lege Park when she saw a pair of red-and-white shoes fac­ing the stall from out­side. It was one of three re­cent in­ci­dents of pos­si­ble voyeurism at cam­puses in Mary­land.

In Thurs­day’s in­ci­dent in Cum­ber­land Hall, the woman saw the outer cur­tain pulled slightly open with some­one out­side the stall look­ing in, cam­pus po­lice said.

She shrieked, he said he was sorry, and he ran, Col­lege Park cam­pus po­lice said.

On Oct. 9, a fe­male stu­dent was show­er­ing in Prince Fred­er­ick Hall when she saw a cell­phone with a cam­era lens pointed over the top of the stall. She yelled, and the male in­truder fled.

At Tow­son Univer­sity, author­i­ties were told Fri­day that a smart­phone had been found in­side the locker room of the women’s swim­ming and div­ing team. The cam­pus pres­i­dent’s of­fice said it was re­ported that the de­vice may have cap­tured video and au­dio.
