On Tuesday afternoon, police went to campus and spoke with university security, who said there had been several incidents in the library in which a man had exposed and touched himself in front of females.
On Tuesday, a female security officer dressed in plain clothes was stationed in the library and saw Jeremy Lee Wilson, 24, of Bridgeport, in one of the book aisles.
