Unidentified male found in women’s locker room

A female student reported an unknown male in the women’s swim team locker room Sunday evening. The student was attempting to change when she saw a man poke his head out from one of the women’s bathroom stalls.

The student told TCU Police the man apologized as she fled the locker room.

She described the suspect as a 20-year-old, short, Hispanic male with a mustache, wearing black shorts and a white T-shirt.

TCU Police Sgt. Kelly Ham declined to comment on whether the suspect was a TCU student.

This is an ongoing investigation, Ham said.

Ham said there are many video surveillance cameras in the University Recreation Center, and TCU Police are working to get more information.

Although police are unsure of how the suspect entered the locker room, one possibility is the suspect broke into the officials’ locker room, located in the basement of the Rec Center, climbed up through the ceiling tiles and fell into the women’s swim team locker room next door, said Steve Kintigh, director of campus recreation.

Ham said this possibility has not been proved nor disproved.

Until the investigation is complete, the Rec Center staff cannot make any judgments about the current security system, said Jay Iorizzo, assistant director of facility operations.
