Stanford University is stepping up security around student dorms after at least four disturbing incidents involving non-student intruders.

According to the Stanford Daily, four strangers were seen inside Manzanita Park residences in the past month. The most recent was in the Castano dorm on November 2 around 6 a.m. A resident found a stranger in the bathroom fondling himself and listening to loud pornography.

The student said the stranger followed him back to his room and asked him if he "wanted to play." The Stanford Daily reports an email was sent to residents describing three other incidents in the Lantana dorm in October. Some students think the dorms are vulnerable because they're by a busy street.
