A scary incident occurred in a residence hall on the campus of South Dakota State University yesterday and police need help from the public.

According to Dakota News Now, a man reportedly entered the dorm room of a woman in Caldwell Hall early Thursday morning. University Police say the suspect got into her room through an adjoining room that was empty and unlocked.

The victim woke up when the man touched her and was scared off when she shined a light on him.
