BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Campus officials at Johns Hopkins University are investigating after reports of a man with a camera inside women’s restrooms in two campus buildings on Friday afternoon.

The university said the man was seen with a camera in bathrooms on the third floor of Hodson Hall and the second floor of Hackerman Hall around noon.

“For someone to invade that space of privacy, it does feel a little violating,” Allison Montoya, a Johns Hopkins University student, said.

Security reportedly searched the area and saw the man running from campus west of San Martin Drive.

Students received an alert on their phone letting them know about the incident, campus officials said.

“We just kind of realized how open our buildings are,” Isabel Siordia, a Johns Hopkins University student, said.

“It would definitely make me feel a little uncomfortable going back into those bathrooms, and being wary about spending time there, and most likely avoiding them altogether, maybe,” Crystal Chang, a Johns Hopkins University student, said.

No official report was made with the Baltimore Police Department. However, law enforcement officials will meet with the school on Saturday to advise them on the situation.

Anyone with information is asked to call campus security at 410-516-7777.
