UD Police arrest a man unaffiliated with the University on one felony charge and one misdemeanor charge
The University of Delaware Police Department (UDPD) arrested a 24-year-old man on Feb. 8 on two offenses, including one felony.
Isaiah Anderson, a resident of Newark, Del., who has no affiliation with the University of Delaware, has been charged with burglary in the third degree — a felony — and a misdemeanor charge of violation of privacy stemming from a UD Police investigation of an incident that occurred in December 2023.
According to UD Police, Anderson allegedly used a handheld recording device to film victims without their consent while they used a first-floor women’s restroom in Willard Hall Education Building, a University building. The building was determined to have been unlocked, leaving Anderson unauthorized access. During its investigation, UDPD uncovered no hidden cameras in the restroom. Victims in Anderson’s footage were neither exposed nor identifiable, said UDPD.
Upon arrest, Anderson was committed to Howard Young Correctional Facility on a $3,000 secured bond and issued a no-contact order with the University of Delaware. In addition, UD Police have banned Anderson from all University property.
Members of the University community are reminded to be vigilant: If you see something, say something. Be aware of your surroundings and lock your doors. Call 911 to report suspicious activity.
