A man who authorities say has been stalking and exposing himself to women in apartment complexes near the University of South Carolina Upstate likely watches his prospective targets before approaching them.
We don't think he just runs up to the window and looks in, Sheriff Chuck Wright said Thursday. I think he scouts a little bit, so to speak.
The man likely watches a student's apartment, trying to see whether she might have a boyfriend or dog before choosing her as a victim, Wright said. That's why deputies are warning female students who live on or near the campus to be on the lookout for suspicious activity and not be hesitant to call law enforcement.
It may not be anything, but let us determine that, Wright said. Just call us. Someone knows this guy and sees him every day.
