— Police at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are looking for a man who allegedly exposed himself to a female Saturday afternoon at a bus stop. 

According to police, a man in his late 20's or 30's, approached the female at a bus stop on Manning Drive and exposed himself just before noon. The woman left the scene without further incident. 

Saturday's incident comes just weeks after Feng Liu, a UNC professor, was robbed and beaten to death while taking a walk just off of campus. 

Freshman Diana Lopez said despite these incidents, she feels safe on campus. 

"There is safety in numbers," she said. "There are a lot of students here, 4,000 freshman, so I feel like I'm never by myself."

The suspect was described as being bald or having short hair and possibly short facial hair. Police said he stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and was last seen wearing jeans and a white t-shirt.
