Intruders Touching Sleeping Georgetown Students

The Georgetown student body is being warned of intruders in the dorms touching female students while they are sleeping.

One incident occurred on April 9 at 3:30 a.m.  A female student told campus police that she was awakened by a hand shaking her shoulder.  The student rolled over to see an unknown male running out of her room.  The student's roommate, who was downstairs, said that she saw a suspect run out the front door.  The roommates checked their room for theft, but found nothing missing.

The suspect was described as a white male with freckles, approximately 6-feet tall.

That same evening, an hour later, another female student reported an intruder in her residence hall.  The student said that she woke up at 4:30 a.m. to find a man laying next to her in bed.  The woman screamed, and the man jumped out of the bed and ran out of the room.  No valuables were taken in that incident, either.

The victims said the intruder was a 6-foot South Asian man.

Georgetown University security is advising students to be vigilant and not to prop doors open.

In 2008 and 2009, a string of intrusions on the Georgetown were attributed to the "Georgetown Cuddler," a man that was sneaking into women's rooms and laying down next to them while they slept.  The university did not comment on any connection between these recent incidents and the "Cuddler" crimes.
