Oakland University Police posted an alert on their Facebook page Tuesday notifying students of a peeping Tom.

Over the past two days, University police received three complaints of someone peeping in the women’s community bathroom in Hill and Van Wagoner residence halls.

Police say in two of the three incidents, the suspect used his cell phone to record the women taking showers in the morning hours.

Police say the suspect held his phone over the shower rod and took pictures or video. In the third case, the man stood over the shower rod and looked into the shower.

"In the 29 years I've been here, I don’t recall any type of similar situation to this," said Mark Gordon, Chief of Oakland University Police Department.

A security card issued to students and staff is required to get inside the residence halls, but police can't say for sure right now if the suspect is a student at OU.

The suspect is described as a black male, age 18-20, whose height is approximately 5’9, and was wearing gray sweat pants and dark colored shirt.

"I hope somebody finds him or somebody has some information. This is supposed to be one the safest colleges in the whole state of Michigan," said freshman Jennifer Medrano Delacruz.
