Man accused of peeking into bathroom at Johnson County Community College

A man was arrested earlier this month after allegedly trespassing into a restroom on the Johnson County Community College campus and making lewd comments to students, according to documents filed in Johnson County District Court.

Malik Woolridge, 27, was charged with breach of privacy and criminal trespass after a staff member saw him peeking into a bathroom stall.

On Jan. 31, the staff member contacted police and said she noticed a man standing outside a restroom who made her feel uncomfortable. After he entered the bathroom, he claimed he heard someone coming very quietly. He peeked through his stall to see Woolridge walking slowly, opening the stall door and peering in, holding court documents.

The woman told police she yelled at him and told him he had to leave. The man did not respond and left the restroom, prosecutors said.

Officers arrested Woolridge shortly after the incident and issued a trespass alert. During an interview with detectives, he admitted to police that he went to the restroom because he thought he would see a woman exposed.

On Feb. 6, a JCCC officer spotted Woolridge loitering in a restroom near the Midwest Trust Center building on campus, according to prosecutors. He was later arrested for trespassing.

Shortly after the defendant was taken into custody, officers were contacted by multiple female students reporting harassment by a man matching Woolridge’s description.

A student told police she was studying at the Regina center when a man approached her for sexual favors. The student told him “no” and left the area to report the incident, telling police she was scared. Video surveillance later identified the man as Woolridge, according to prosecutors.

According to another student’s report, a man entered the elevator in the parking garage and made lewd comments about her appearance. During the ride, the comments continue and the student exits the elevator feeling uncomfortable. Her professor encouraged her to report the incident, court documents indicate.

Woolridge remains in the Johnson County Jail on $25,000 bond. The hearing of his petition is scheduled for February 27.
