NU Students Asked to Look Out for Shower Masturbator

What is going on at Northwestern? If they aren't demonstrating sex toys in class or having to deal with the assault on the eardrums known as Chet Haze, someone's getting caught with his hands full in a shower.

Several NU students forwarded Gawker an email sent out by campus emergency personnel warning them of warning them to be on the lookout for someone who was caught doing what people sometimes do when still waters run deep, but in the privacy of their own showers.

On Nov. 27, 2011, at approximately 4 p.m. two male juveniles reported that while they were in the Sports and Aquatics Center on the Evanston campus, a man in the shower was engaged in self-gratification. No physical contact occurred between the man and the juveniles and they were not injured.

A detailed description of the offender could not be obtained.

The incident is under investigation by the Evanston Police Department. Contact the Evanston Police Department at 847-866-5000 or the University Police Department at 847-491-3456 if you have any information that might assist in this investigation.

The University Police Department reminds all community members to report suspicious activities/persons immediately to University Police or Evanston Police by dialing 911 or by using a blue light emergency telephone.

Maybe NU was too soon to pull the Human Sexuality class from their curriculum. Or maybe they have a detailed description of the culprit's defining characteristics. Maybe a lineup is in order.
