The following is a communication to the campus community from UVM Chief of Police Gary Margolis. It is being distributed through a listserv reserved for priority and emergency communications. You cannot leave this list.

To the University Community:

During the past several months residents of Redstone Apartments on Redstone Campus have encountered an adult white male who approaches low windows and patio sliding doors to expose his genitals and touch himself in front of the residents inside.  He is additionally described as 5'9" to 6'0" tall, dark reddish/grayish hair, heavy build (estimated up to 300 lbs), sometimes with facial hair and sometimes without, wearing dark clothing (including shirts, jackets and specifically sweat/exercise pants).

Police Services has received no reports that he has attempted to harm, or harmed any of the residents nor have there been reports of his trying to enter apartments.

If you have information concerning this matter, please contact Detective Kris Carlson at the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations (859-3084) or report on-line at

"Crime Awareness" is an integral component of "crime prevention."  Knowledge that crimes occur encourages communities to actively participate in crime prevention efforts (e.g., locking doors, walking in well lit areas at night with others, reporting suspicious activity to police) and, therefore, creates a safer environment. Lack of information invites complacency. The following message was approved for campus-wide distribution by UVM Police Chief Gary J. Margolis to alert you to an incident, to promote safety on campus and, in part, to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990.
