On July 25, Duquesne University Public Safety announced in an email alert that they have apprehended a suspect after a female student reported a man allegedly fondling himself in Gumberg Library yesterday evening. The announcement followed an earlier email alert on July 25 publicizing the incident.

The crime alert email stated that at 5:30 p.m. on July 24, a female studying in Gumberg Library noticed a man staring at her. The female suspected that the “suspect was possibly fondling himself under the table,” and she moved to a different floor.

According to the email, the female noticed 20 minutes later that the man had followed her and was sitting near her “continuing with his hands under the table.” She then called Duquesne University Public Safety, who did not initially find the suspect after searching the library.

A second victim reported to Duquesne University Public Safety that the suspect had also been staring at her, making her “uncomfortable,” according to the email.

A second email alert was released at 6:40 p.m. on July 25 that the suspect had been taken into custody.

Duquesne Public Safety suggests that anyone who witnesses suspicious activity to call 412-396-2677.
