On Thursday, May 16, 2019, at 8:24 p.m., a female student reported to the University’s Department of Public Safety that as she was waiting for the bus across the street from the Queens campus on Union Turnpike and 171 Street, she was the victim of indecent exposure. A male in a white SUV (pictured below), with New York State license plate HBF-2505, pulled to the curb, opened the passenger window, and exposed himself to the student. He fled the location in the vehicle traveling westbound on Union Turnpike toward 170 Street. The male made no attempt to speak with or touch the student.
