 ATHENS, Ga. -- Authorities are searching for a man who spied on a woman while she was in a restroom stall at Athens Technical College.

The suspect was described by the victim as “cross-eyed,” was a black male in his 20s who wore a black beret-style hat, a black jacket and black shoes with red lines on them.

Athens-Clarke County police said the 29-year-old victim entered the school’s library building at about 9 a.m. Tuesday and noticed a man sitting on a bench inside the entrance.

The woman walked directly to the restroom. After she entered a stall she heard someone else enter the room and go into the stall next to hers, according to police.

While using the facility, the victim heard the sound of someone stepping on a toilet seat, police said. Upon looking up she saw a man peering over the top of the stall partition.

The woman screamed, “What are you doing?” at which time the man fled, according to police.

The victim told police it was the same man who was sitting inside the library building entrance.

A witness driving through a parking lot at the campus off U.S. Highway 29 North had to slam on brakes to avoid striking the suspect as he fled from the building, police said. He was last seen running toward Hull Road.
