A Georgetown University student was sitting in her living room just off campus Friday night when she spotted a stranger emerging from a closet. Confronted, he quickly fled, the campus public safety department said.
The department said the student told them the intruder came out of “an adjacent closet.”
She asked him what he was doing there and he said he was looking for a party, the safety department said. Then he ran out the back door.
In another incident on the same night in the same area, a student returned to her residence and found a stranger in an upstairs bedroom. She screamed and he, too, fled, the safety department said.
One incident occurred about 10 p.m. in the 1400 block of 36th Street NW, a block of two- and three-story houses about a hundred yards from the main gate to the campus.
The other was reported about an hour and a half later — and just around the corner — in the 3600 block of P Street NW.
Neither student was injured. It was not immediately clear whether the incidents were connected. In both, the intruders were described as six feet tall with medium builds, and wearing dark hooded jackets. The intruder in the first incident was described as black. and in his early 20s. Those details were not given in the second incident.
The safety department said D.C. police searched the area but found no suspects.
