Man Allegedly Exposes Himself to Student on Mt. Auburn

A man allegedly exposed himself to a Harvard student at about 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday, according to Cambridge Police Department spokesperson Jeremy Warnick. There has not been an arrest.

This incident, which took place on Mt. Auburn St. near the corner of JFK St., according to Warnick, comes after another case of indecent exposure that occurred nearby Quincy House on Sunday.

The two cases, however, seem to be unrelated, as the description of this suspect does not match that of the alleged Quincy House perpetrator, Warnick said Thursday afternoon.

“This appears to be a random incident,” Warnick said.

According to Warnick, the victim, whose identity has not been released, appears to have initially reported the crime to the Harvard University Police Department. A HUPD officer had joined the victim by the time CPD arrived.


The alleged crime, however, falls under CPD's jurisdiction, because it occurred outside of Harvard property.

After hearing the victim’s description of what had happened, CPD took the victim to a group of other individuals who had been stopped by another officer in the area in an attempt to identify a potential suspect, Warnick said.

No potential suspect was identified among the group members, Warnick said.

“It’s an officer awareness situation at this point, in terms of utilizing that description that was provided to us, and keeping a keen eye in that particular area for someone that may match that description,” Warnick said.
