Approximately 1:00pm, 09/11/2014, a female student was seated in the reserved section of the Ablah Library when she was approached by an unknown male. The male asked if he could share her table. He visited with her for a few minutes, he started to stand up and reached out and touched her upper thigh without her consent. She told him she did not want to be touched. He sat back down and stared her and tried to talk to her, she ignored him and he reached out and grabbed her foot, started rubbing her foot while saying, “let me rub your feet”.  The student pulled her foot away and moved to another table. The male got up and left the area, she thought he had left, but he returned, still staring at her and continued to watch her until she pulled out her phone and he got up left the area as she was calling police.
