BERKELEY (BCN) -Police are investigating a suspicious man who disguised himself as a woman and took pictures of women in a locker room at the University of California at Berkeley on two occasions last week.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or Indian man in his 20s who is 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a thin build and dark brown or black hair.

A custodian saw him on Oct. 4 at about 9:20 p.m. with a white towel wrapped around his head and chin at the Recreational Sports Facility on the UC Berkeley campus.

On Oct. 6 at 4:30 p.m., the man was seen again, this time leaving the facility with a black wig.

On one of the incidents, police said the man was seen using a cell phone to take pictures of women in the locker room. He fled both times after staff confronted him.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call UC Berkeley police (510) 642-0472.
