Police Seek UCLA Bathroom Stall Peeper

UCLA police on Wednesday were looking for a man who peered over the shower stalls of two female students in separate incidents.

About 3 p.m. Thursday, a student who was showering at Sproul Hall noticed a male peering over the adjacent shower stall door at her, police said.

Another student reported that at 5 p.m. the same day, "an unknown subject held a black rectangular object, possibly a cell phone, over the adjacent shower stall door while she was taking a shower," also at Sproul Hall, police said.

The suspect was described as white, about 35 to 40 years old, 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 9, with a stocky build.

He had blue eyes, and "buzzed" blond hair. He had wrinkles on his forehead, according to police.

He was wearing a dark gray sweater and dark gray pants.

Students were alarmed.

All you want to do is take a clean shower and maybe go to be or go to class," said student Hira Ashir. "That's your sacred place and that's the place where you kind of relax."

Kaylie Edger was surprised that someone was able to get in knowing students need their own keycards.

Parent Scott Liegler said he wasn't too concerned.

"They've got all kinds of security around campus to take care of things," he said.
