Police at a university in Maryland have put out an alert for a middle-aged woman who has been approaching students on campus looking for a date on behalf of her son.
Towson University officers received several complaints about the mom approaching students in two different buildings on campus, where she reportedly showed students a picture of her son on her cell phone before asking if they would be interested in a date with him, according to The Baltimore Sun.
While it is unclear exactly how many students were approached, her activity caused enough of a disturbance for the school police to issue an “incident advisory” urging the community to help identify the woman.
The woman is not facing any criminal charges but will simply be asked to stop.
In an email written to the student body, the Towson University Police said: “The Towson University Police Department is investigating three related incidents occurring in the Cook Library and Center for the Arts buildings on February 6 and 7, 2019. Students have reported being approached by an older female who attempted to show them a picture on her cell phone and ask if [they] were interested in dating her son. The subject of interest is described as a female, appearing to be in her 50s, with glasses, wearing blue jeans and a striped long sleeve shirt with red trim along the bottom, a multi colored scarf, brown shoes and carrying a dark colored coat.
“This incident advisory is being provided in order to make the TU Community aware of an incident on campus that may cause concern. This advisory is intended to heighten awareness and inform the community of incidents that may impact their safety and security.”
