Man reportedly touched sleeping NCSU sorority member

Posted August 16, 2010

— North Carolina State University campus police were searching Monday for a man who was inside the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house early Saturday.

A sorority member told police she was awakened at about 7:40 a.m. Saturday to find a man she didn't know touching and tickling her feet. The man fled the sorority house, at 2309 S. Fraternity Court, when the woman and other sorority members confronted him, police said.

No injuries were reported in the incident, which occurred on the same day as thousands of N.C. State students returned to campus for the start of the fall semester.

The man was described as being between 18 and 24 years old, with a dark complexion and medium build. He had a crew cut and was wearing a purple shirt.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call N.C. State campus police. Investigators said they were following up on several leads.

    I think she knew the guy but didn't want to get kicked out for having a boy over.

    This is what happens when a freshman college student leaves the house for the first time. They drink too much over the weekend, meet a guy at the bar, and then wake up to him tickling their feet. Pretty silly story if you ask me. Did he break in, or was he invited; guessing the latter.

    haha, it's going to be hard to explain this if he has to register as a sex offender. I have to say, it makes me laugh, but I would hate if men had access to my sleeping daughter. Doesn't sound like the purist of sororities that they just have guys walking around in their house while the girls are sleeping.
