KENT, Ohio (WOIO) - New video recorded by a doorbell camera shows the half-naked male trespassing and inappropriately touching himself outside of a second Kent State University sorority house.

Police are asking for help to identify the man who was seen in a red Speedo standing outside of the sorority houses.

The suspect was most recently caught outside the Delta Gamma house early Thursday morning. He walked up to the door with his phone covering his face. Police said it appeared that he was talking to someone on the phone.

In the first reported incident, the same man approached the front door of the Alpha Phi sorority house in the red Speedo with words like “loser” and “pervert” written across his body.

Kent Police Captain Nick Shearer said, “Mainly, he kind of walks around, looks in some windows, then leaves.”

Police said many Alpha Phi sorority members also received naked pictures of him and harassing message sent to their Instagram accounts. His face is covered with an emoji, but like in the video, he had “laugh at me,” “loser,” and “pervert” written across his body.

WARNING: The following video may contain sensitive material and may not be suitable for everyone.

Captain Shearer said, “It’s all self-deprecating for the most part. It doesn’t indicate that he’s doing things for gratification necessarily. It seems more like he’s poking fun at himself.”

Officials are unsure of the man’s intentions, but say he has not attempted to break into the home or inappropriately touch anyone.

Kent State University Police issued the following statement upon learning of the situation:

Kent State University is aware of a man approaching sorority homes in the city of Kent. Kent City Police are investigating this matter.
