KENT, Ohio — Kent police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who has approached a Kent State University sorority house nude or mostly nude on multiple occasions.

The first incident occurred on Aug. 22 around 2:30 a.m. when the man was seen on surveillance video completely nude on the front porch of the Alpha Phi sorority house. He was holding a cell phone and appeared to be recording on it, police said.

During that first incident, the man was covered in writing including “LOSER” written across his forehead and “Laugh at me” written across his chest, according to police.

The same man was spotted approaching the sorority house early Monday morning, police said.

Police have increased patrols in the area but still need to identify the man involved.

The man’s intentions are unknown, and while police believe it may just be a prank, authorities said that his behavior is concerning and causing alarms to residents and students, police said.

Police are investigating this incident as a crime.

Authorities ask that all students and residents stay vigilant and report any suspicious activity or information regarding this incident in particular to police.
