SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Early Sunday morning, police received a 9-1-1 call from a female Texas State University student who woke up to find a man in her room.

The university says police were called at around 4:40 a.m, after a man entered the dorm room and began touching a sleeping female student. He began touching her hair, arm and face while sitting on the edge of her bed, according to a police affidavit. The student screamed and the suspect ran out of her room in Sterry Hall.

Both the victim and her roommate told authorities they rarely lock their dorm room door.

The suspect has been identified as Ledward Spencer, who is not a student, after he was found in the 400 block of N. LBJ Drive.. He was charged with burglary of a habitation, a second degree felony, and issued a criminal trespass warrant for the Texas State campus.

The university says the investigation is ongoing.
