Alert: "Peeping Tom" Reported on Boston University Campus

The Boston University Police Department issued a crime alert for an alleged "peeping Tom" a week after two incidents were reported in Claflin Hall. The alert was issued to all Claflin residents. The hall is located at 273 Babcock Street in the West Campus.

The first issue that was described took place on January 22 when a female resident of the hall reported an "unknown suspect holding a cell phone up from under the shower stall in their direction." The second incident in the hall occurred on January 25. A second recording took place in the shower stall, but this time an iphone not blackberry was used.

The BU Police Detective Division is currently investigating both incidents, but there has not been an announcement whether the two are connected. BUPD Sergeant Jeffrey Burke has urged students to "remain vigilant about observing their surroundings in dorms, especially around shower areas."
