Authorities say one student reported being awakened over the weekend by a man in bed next to her. When the woman screamed, the man left. Investigators say the woman was not harmed and nothing was taken.

Later after the campus Department of Public Safety sent out an alert another student reported that she was awakened by someone shaking her shoulder around 3:30 Sunday morning. The student told investigators when she opened her eyes, she saw a man she didn't know leaving the room. Nothing was disturbed.

The victims describe the intruder as an Asian man, about 6-feet tall. Georgetown University security is advising students to be vigilant and not to prop their doors open.
