The first incident happened at 11:28 a.m., police said, where the man exposed himself to a female victim in the 300 block of Caldwell Street.

Jocelyn Owens, a rising senior, says the man was walking behind her and following her home from class when he yelled out.

"I'm pretty sure he said 'Hey' really loudly and I turned around and that is when he was exposing himself to me in a very provocative matter," she said. "I was frightened. I've never been so scared in my life honestly."

A short time later, at 11:52 a.m., two women reported a similar encounter on a path between Cobb Terrace and The Lux Apartments.

In both sightings, the women reported that the suspect was a white man, bald, wearing all black. In one report, he is described as being in his 40s and having a "heavy" build.

The cases remain under investigation.
