Police: Man exposes self to student in campus food court

SEATTLE -- The University of Washington Police Department is looking for a man who reportedly pulled down his pants and started masturbating to a female student sitting alone in a campus food court Friday.

According to police, the victim was sitting alone in a booth in the Husky Union Building around 4:20 p.m. when she looked up and noticed a man standing near the booth and blocking her exit from it.

She later told officers the man was looking at her, had his pants pulled down and was masturbating. When the man realized the victim had seen him, he said sorry, pulled up his pants and quickly walked out of the building, according to police.

Officers searched the area but were unable to find the man.

The suspect is described as a light-complexioned black man with a thin build and short black hair. He is approximately 21 to 24 years old, 5-feet-6-inches to 5-feet-9-inches tall, and 140 to 160 pounds. At the time of the incident he was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and black tennis shoes.
