Report of Male Subject at the Soutwest Campus Loitering in Women's Restroom with a Recording Device

During the evening of May 8th, 2018, SRJC District Police were alerted to an incident at the SRJC Southwest Campus at 950 South Wright Road. Female students notified police dispatch that a male subject was loitering in the female restroom and was using a cellular phone to photograph or record females from adjacent toilet stalls. Two female victims each reported separate incidents which occurred between 7:45 pm and 7:55 pm. It was reported that the male subject held the cell phone underneath the stall door from the adjacent stall to either photograph or video her. A second victim reported a similar incident from the same restroom but the male subject held the cellular phone from above the adjacent stall.

District Police Officers responded to the area within minutes and did a thorough check of the area but did not locate the subject. The subject has been described as a white male adult, approximately 20-30 years of age, approximately 5`6” in height with either gray hair or a bald head. The subject was reported as wearing a black and white striped t-shirt and was barefoot. He was last seen walking away from the campus, in a southern direction.

The investigation is ongoing and the District Police are asking anyone who was in the area around the time who may have witnessed anything suspicious or who has any information to come forward by contacting our dispatch center at (707)527-1000.

The SRJC District Police is committed to the safety to all those in our community and will be actively patrolling. Please do your part in being safe on campus by doing the following

• If you are on the campus late, ask someone you trust, a colleague or friend, to walk or drive you to your vehicle.
• If you have any concerns and must walk alone, call the District Police for a uniformed safety escort to walk you to your vehicle, class, office, or other area on campus. (707) 527-1000.
• Stay in well-lit, well-populated areas and park your car in well-lit, well-traveled areas of the parking lots.
• Be aware of your environment. Don’t be afraid to look over your shoulders. It’s not rude to maintain a safe distance between yourself and others.
• Be aware of the locations of the nearest emergency phone stations and program the phone number for District Police into your cell phone; (707)527-1000.
• Send the message that you are calm, confident, and know where you are going.
• Carry your keys in your hand. You will be able to get into your car faster and the keys may be used as a weapon if necessary.
• Avoid blind corners. Take wide turns so that you have room to react to what’s ahead.
• Walk with confidence.
• Check your backseats before getting into your car.
• Always to lock your vehicle and roll up your windows.
• If you see someone loitering around your car as you approach, STOP!, turn around, walk away and watch them from a distance.

The District Police are also asking everyone to be aware of their surroundings while on campus and to immediately report any suspicious persons or activities to (707) 527-1000. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING! We all must work together in keeping our community safe.
