Cal State San Bernardino students were being warned about a "suspicious male" who posed as a resident assistant to try and gain access to two separate units recently at CSUSB University Village Apartments, campus police said.

The incidents occurred last Wednesday and Friday nights, about 9 p.m. in each instance, according to the safety alert sent out by the CSUSB Police Department on Saturday evening.

The subject knocked at the apartments and told the female residents he needed to enter their rooms to perform maintenance repairs, the alert stated.

No additional information was provided, and it was unclear how the incidents ended.

CSUSB police described the person only as a tall black man, with short, curly hair. He was wearing dark-colored shorts, a plaid red short-sleeve shirt, and was not wearing a metal name badge as is required of resident assistants, according to the alert.

A sketch of the man has not been released.

Students have been urged to be cautious of any unknown or suspicious individuals near or around their apartments, and not to open their doors if they do not recognize the person, the alert stated.

They should also contact police immediately by calling 911 in an emergency situation or 909-537-7777.
