The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s, around 6 feet tall, skinny build, light short brown hair, wearing jeans, gray hooded sweatshirt and a black flat-brimmed hat with possible stars on the hat.  He smelled of alcohol and heavy cologne.

At this time, it is unknown if this is related to other recent voyeurism incidents near the WWU campus.

Residents are encouraged to take safety measures at all times, which include talking to neighbors and roommates as well as assuring that doors and windows are secured whether you are home or away.  Any unusual activity should be reported to police by calling 9-1-1.

Extra patrol of this area is ongoing.
