Tufts University police are looking for a man who they say entered a female student’s dorm Saturday morning while she slept.

A student in Wren Hall, an undergraduate dorm on Tufts’ Medford campus, awoke to an unknown male rubbing her arm around 3:55 a.m. Saturday, police said. Police searched the surrounding area for the suspect to no avail.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male with short black hair and a dark shirt, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall. TUPD said they are “actively investigating” the incident.
