SAN DIEGO — Students at Cal State San Marcos have been warned about a 19-year-old man accused of making “inappropriate sexual advances” toward women, focusing on their feet and toes.

Campus police tweeted an alert Thursday that Emeka Charles Ofoedu, who is not a student at the school, has been accused of trying to “caress, massage or place (a) victim’s foot or toes in/on his mouth without the victim’s consent.”

Ofoedu is in San Diego County Jail after being arrested on suspicion of being a non-student who refused to leave campus, according to jail records.

Ofoedu “indicated that he will return to campus,” according to the campus police warning. He has also been spotted at Palomar Community College, police said.

Anyone who sees Ofoedu on campus or has been “the victim of any similar behavior by Ofoedu” should contact campus police (760 750-4567) or the university’s SAFE hotline (760 750-SAFE), police said.
