Man accused of public nudity, harassing girls on Notre Dame's campus
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – A man was arrested after he allegedly harassed girls and was seen running around naked on Notre Dame’s campus, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Walter Schultz was arrested on three counts of public nudity.
On Tuesday, officers with the Notre Dame Police Department were called to the “God Quad” for reports of a man, later identified as Schultz, repeatedly riding a bike in the area, leering at girls, and following them.
One victim told officers that over the past few days, she’s received complaints from girls saying Schultz was riding around a dorm building looking at them and at the windows of the dorm.
She also said that earlier that day, Schultz followed closely behind her as she was walking down a campus sidewalk alone. The victim called someone on the phone and spoke loudly to them until Schultz rode away.
At 9:30 p.m. that night, officers returned to the area as protection for a program event.
Program organizers told police they cancelled the outdoor event as a precaution.
A victim gave officers a photo showing Schultz sitting on a campus bench with no shirt, blue shorts, and a bike beside him.
Schultz’s shorts were allegedly pulled up high enough to where you could partially see his private area.
Later that night, officers were called to another dorm building on campus for reports that Schultz had returned and was running around naked outside of the building.
Responding officers passed Knights of Columbus and saw Schultz, wearing the same clothing seen in the photo, walking near a dorm building.
Officers found him hiding between air conditioning units and the basement windows of the dorm building, according to reports.
Schultz is being held at the St. Joseph County Jail on no bond.
He is due in court on Friday.
Schultz has prior convictions for public nudity.
