San Diego police asked for help from the public on Thursday to identify a man suspected of harassing a woman on the property of her college home last week and trying to open several of her doors.
According to police, the woman and her roommates were in the house, and the man was stuck on the street, looking out the window and trying to get into the house.
The incident took place on April 27 at a house on Mary Lane Drive, San Diego Police Lt. Matthew Botkin said in a press release. The house is in the area west of College Boulevard and south of Montezuma Road and the campus of San Diego State University.
After the woman locked herself in the house with her roommates, the man was stuck in the yard for about 15 minutes, Botkin said.
Police did not give a description of the man, but images provided by the department appear to be black with a skinny body, short hair and facial hair. He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, loose and wide green pants and sneakers.
The incident last week took place in the same neighborhood, where police said that since June 2020, a man who is obviously irrelevant to the case has been spotted at least six times looking out the windows of houses. Authorities in February asked for help to identify this person.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity from last week’s incident was asked to call the San Diego Police Department at (619) 531-2000 or the anonymous San Diego County Crime Stoppers line at (888) 580-8477.
