    Police investigating Feb. indecent exposure on campus

    Police said Tuesday that they are still searching for a suspect involved in an indecent exposure incident in the Sid Richardson Building last month.

    According to a TCU Police offense report, at 1:15 p.m. Feb. 21, the complainants told police that they were sitting in the patio area of the Sid Richardson Building when they looked up and saw a man wearing a pulled-up black shirt and black and white thong underwear masturbating near a third floor window in Sid Richardson. The man is in his early 20s, according to the police report.

    The complainants were two women, ages 18 and 19, according to a public information report from the Fort Worth Police Department.

    Fort Worth Police Sgt. Chad Mahaffey said TCU Police turned the case over to the Fort Worth Sexual Assault Unit. He said the investigation is ongoing.

    TCU Police Sgt. Kelly Ham said police collected evidence from the scene and sent it to the Fort Worth Crime Lab for DNA analysis.

    A crime alert was not sent out because the department did not consider the suspect to be a threat to other people, he said.

    Mahaffey said no other indecent exposure incidents were reported in the TCU area during February.

    Indecent exposure is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail and up to a $2,000 fine.
