University Police respond to new voyeurism incident reported on campus

By Cody Clark

University Police responded to a possible voyeurism incident at Ridgeway Beta around 8:36 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, according to a Campus Advisory Alert.

According to the advisory, three female students walking back from the Ridgeway Commons reported seeing two men and one woman walking in the other direction. The students reported that one of the men stopped on a landing and began holding a cell phone at chest level, pointing through a window into the room. According to the advisory, two students, identified as a male and female, were currently in the room. The students stated in the report that they did not see what was on the man’s phone screen and were unsure if he was taking a photo or video.

According to the advisory, the students told police they didn’t recognize either of the males but thought they may have seen the female elsewhere on campus. The female was described as having a “pixie cut” hairstyle and one of the men was described as tall and possibly wearing a white hoodie, according to University Police.

At this time, the incident is not believed to be related to other incidents of voyeurism in areas surrounding Western, according to the advisory.

Police found no one matching these descriptions in the surrounding area.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the University Police at (360) 650-3555.
