Humber searching for man accused of capturing footage in women’s washroom

Mar 26, 2024 | Campus News

Humber’s Public Safety Department is asking for help with finding a male suspect following an incident that happened in a women’s washroom at North Campus last week.

According to a security alert, it took place inside a 2nd-floor washroom in the K building on March 20 around 3:45 p.m.

The Director of Public Safety, Rob Kilfoyle, said it’s important for students to be aware of when events like this happen.

“We want to be very vigilant, and we’re trying to locate the individual,” Kilfoyle said. “It’s been our experience that these kinds of complaints aren’t just a one-time thing.”

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 5’8”, medium build, approximately 19-20 years of age, stubble facial hair, curly hair and wearing a black jacket with a hood and carrying a backpack.

According to Humber’s Public Safety department, they only get reports about incidents taking place in the washrooms about once a year.

“We put out the security alerts and we want people to be aware of the fact that the incident occurred and we are monitoring through security patrol and we have cameras up in some areas that we can monitor for the description,” he said.

Annabelle Berry, a first-year student in Humber’s paralegal program, says that hearing about what happened in the washroom has made her more cautious around campus.

“I always felt pretty safe, but hearing about the bathrooms makes me feel a lot more cautious about who’s around me sometimes because you never really know someone’s intentions,” Berry said.

Since finding out about the incident, she says she’s hanging out with others more. “I either ask my classmates or coworkers if they want to come with me, so I’m at less of a risk of being stuck in a situation alone,” she said.

While Kilfoyle said the odds of being targeted by this individual are small it’s still good to take precautions whenever necessary.

Kifoyle is also encouraging students to use the Humber Guardian app, which can be downloaded for free on their phones. It allows students to directly contact the Public Safety Department without having to memorize or search for the phone number.

Anyone with information about the individual involved in the incident in the washroom is encouraged to contact either Public Safety at 416-675-8500, call Toronto Police Service at 416-808-2204 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers are 416-222-TIPS (8477) or online at
