CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Police with the Southern Illinois University Carbondale Department of Public Safety ask people to be on the lookout for a man in connection with a suspicious incident.

The suspect is described as a white male, mid 30's, 6'2" to 6'4", clean shaven, with gelled, short brown hair.  

At the time of the incident the suspect was believed to wearing a green, plaid button-down shirt.      

According to officials, a female resident of Southern Hills Apartments reported to them that she had just returned to her room around 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 5, when she heard a knock at the door.   

A man outside said he was having car problems and asked if he could borrow her phone.
