Campus police at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have put out a request for help in finding a post-Halloween suspect who entered several rooms in the school's Morrison Residence Hall early Tuesday.
Police said in a campuswide alert that the suspect is a white man, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall who they think might live in Eringhaus Residence Hall.
The man was said to be wearing a “cowboy-themed costume” that includes a black-and-yellow striped shirt, jeans, a “Wanted” sign hung around his neck and makeup that made it look he had head injuries, the alert said.
The man entered several unlocked rooms during a half-hour period, police said. They did not disclose whether anything was taken.
Never miss a local story.
Randy Young, spokesman for the department, said descriptions came from witnesses who saw the man.
Students were in some of the rooms at the time, Young said.
Police asked anyone who can help them identify or find the suspect to contact Inv. Oliver at 919-843-6165.
