An unknown male allegedly took pictures or video footage of a female student while she was showering in her Clark Kerr Campus dorm Tuesday night, the third incident of its kind in a single building since February.

At about 10:50 p.m., the female resident saw a male suspect pointing a smart phone underneath her shower stall in building 12, according to UCPD Lt. Alex Yao. The suspect had left the bathroom before UCPD officers arrived.

According to a sign posted outside the building's first-floor bathroom, shower curtains were scheduled to be installed in the bathroom on Friday. As of Sunday, shower curtains had been installed in about half of the first floor stalls, according to UC Berkeley student Tim Park, who lives in the building.

While investigating Tuesday's incident, UCPD also received notice of a previously unreported but similar incident in the same building March 15 at around 9 p.m., according to Yao.

The two peeping reports from March follow a similar incident reported to UCPD Feb. 5, in which a female student reported seeing a male taking pictures of her showering, also in building 12.

Park said that all three of the peeping incidents occurred on the first floor of the building.

The locks on building 12's first floor bathroom doors have also been changed, making it so that only residents of that building can use the restrooms. Clark Kerr residents previously had access to all of the communal bathrooms on the campus.

UCPD community advisory fliers have been posted around the dorm complex detailing the recent incidents and providing descriptions of the alleged peepers as well as a warning about a "potential emerging pattern."
