A man exposing himself to students on campus prompted an alert from University of South Florida Police on Thursday.

Around 6 p.m., August 18, USF Police Department were called to Juniper Popular Dining Hall, near USF Beard Drive, for a report that a white male, who appeared to be in his 30s, flashed a student.

"Officers responded to that call, but were unable to locate the suspect," said Lt. Charlotte Domingo with the USF Police Department.

At 9 p.m., the police department received a similar call that a man matching the same description exposed himself outside the Fresh Foods Dining area in the Argos Center.

Less than 15 minutes later, police received a third call.

"There was a naked male running on the fifth floor of the Beard Garage," said Domingo.

Police responded quickly to all three incidents, but never located a suspect.

"It's scary. What's going to happen if, what if one night somebody just comes and does something more extravagant and somebody gets hurt?" said Chrisna Lindor, a freshman who just moved onto campus on Thursday.

USF had four flashing incidents reported in 2015. Three more incidents were reported this April, with only one leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information on the recent incident is asked to contact the University of South Florida Police Department at (813)974-2628.
