Police are searching for a mother who’s allegedly harassing college women to date her son
Police want to identify a woman they say is badgering college women to date her single son.
The Baltimore Sun reports that a woman in her mid-50s has been visiting the campus of Towson University in Maryland pestering female students. The mom reportedly approaches her victims, shows them a photo of her eligible son and asks if they are interested in dating him.
Police say the mom entered two on-campus buildings on three separate dates to play Cupid. The Towson Police Department shared an email with Yahoo Lifestyle from Chief Charles Herring that alerts the community to the mother’s actions.
“The Towson University Police Department is investigating three related incidents occurring in the Cook Library and Center for the Arts buildings on February 6 and 7,” read the email. “Students have reported being approached by an older female who attempted to show them a picture on her cellphone and ask if they were interested in dating her son. The subject of interest is described as a female, appearing to be in her 50s, with glasses, wearing blue jeans and a striped long-sleeve shirt with red trim along the bottom, a multicolored scarf, brown shoes and carrying a dark-colored coat.”
Herring concludes: “This incident advisory is being provided in order to make the TU Community aware of an incident on campus that may cause concern. This advisory is intended to heighten awareness and inform the community of incidents that may impact their safety and security.”
A police spokesperson tells Yahoo Lifestyle that, for now, the mother is not suspected of committing a crime; they just want her to stop. So might her son.
