Two female victims were approached and harassed by eight juvenile males near campus Sunday night. 

The harassment occurred around 10:50 p.m. while the victims were getting into their vehicle near the Graduate Hotel on East Bank. The group used derogatory language toward the victims and one exposed himself to them, according to a report released by the University of Minnesota Police Department Tuesday.

The group then walked to the East Bank light rail station and left the area, according to the report. 

One male was described as wearing a white puffy jacket. The male who exposed himself was around 5 feet, 11 inches tall with a flat-top haircut. He wore red pants, a dark sweatshirt and white-striped boxers. The group was described as appearing between 15 and 17 years of age. 

According to the report, UMPD is investigating the incident.
