2 women report being touched by men in dorm rooms at Rider

Authorities say two female Rider University students reported being inappropriately touched by male intruders as they slept in their dorm rooms.

Lawrence police spokesman Lt. Joseph Amodio told NJ.com that a man entered a woman’s unlocked dorm room and touched her breast last Sunday.

The student screamed and swung at the man, sending him running from the room.

Another incident was reported on Sept. 11 when a man entered a sleeping woman’s room and touched her shoulder.

The university and police said they are beefing up security on campus in response to the incidents.
