Around 5:30 a.m. today, CU Police received a report of a burglary in Smith Hall that occurred around 5 a.m. An intoxicated man briefly entered a Smith Hall room between 1 and 5 a.m. and then left. It’s unclear if the door was locked. The two females living in that room believe the same man returned around 5 a.m. A female victim awoke to a man standing over her and possibly masturbating on the victim. Her roommate screamed, and the man quickly left.

The suspect is described as a tall and skinny college-age white male wearing a bright blue shirt. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call CU Police at 303-492-6666 or 911.

CU Police encourage residence hall students to always lock their room doors – especially at night. Residents need their Buff OneCard IDs to enter secure areas of residence hall buildings. Don’t give access to strangers by letting them “tailgate” into secure areas.
