The Baltimore Sun reports that a woman in her mid-50s has been visiting the campus of Towson University in Maryland pestering female students.

Campus police recently released an "incident advisory" asking for the community's help to identify the woman - who they say has scoured the library looking for a date for her son.

The school said it is attempting to alert students about the woman, since her presence affects their "safety and security".

An email was sent out to students from Charles Herring, chief of the university police department.

"This person may frequent Cook Library and Center for the Arts".

'This incident advisory is being provided in order to make the TU Community aware of an incident on campus that may cause concern, ' the email read.

"This advisory is meant to heighten awareness and inform the community of incidents that may impact their safety and security", he said.

Officials told the newspaper the woman is not being sought in a criminal matter, they just want to stop the woman's behaviour.
