A male was arrested for “unlawfully entering” a residence hall wearing only boxer shorts and touching a victim while she slept in her room Friday, said University Police (UP) spokeswoman Lt. Meg Ross.
Daniel C. Boliek, who is not a USF student, entered Beta Hall in his boxer shorts before 6 a.m. and made his way into the victim’s room and touched the female’s face with his hand, according to a police report.
The victim’s roommate woke up and caught Boliek.
“It was really scary for me,” the roommate said. “I was trying to be as calm as possible. I was thinking, ‘why is he here?'”
When the roommate saw Boliek touching the victim, she asked Boliek if she could help him.
Boliek then left the room and she locked the door.
She said Boliek attempted to get back into the room after he left and was charging at the door.
According to the report, she told police that through the peephole she saw Boliek “disrobe” completely and approach an RA, “motioning toward her as if to shoot her with his hand.”
When Boliek attempted to punch the RA and shove her backward, the RA “fled into her room” and called UP, the report said.
Ross said she did not know how Boliek was able to enter the residence hall, which requires swipe card access.
Once UP arrived, Boliek “sucker punched” an officer in the nose, according to the report. Police attempted to use pepper spray on him, but it was ineffective.
Boliek then began to masturbate toward the officer and said, “I’m jerking off right now,” according to the report.
Boliek fled Beta Hall and ignored officers’ commands. He was eventually taken to the ground and was arrested around 6:05 a.m.
For his safety, Boliek was put into a restraining device, the report said.
As of Sunday night, Boliek was still being held at Orient Road Jail on $155,750 bond.
Police charged him with three felonies: battery on a law enforcement officer, burglary of an occupied dwelling with battery and battery on a university official.
UP also charged Boliek with four misdemeanors: battery, obstructing or opposing an officer, exposure of a sexual organ and disorderly conduct, according to the charge report.
The victim and the RA could not be reached for comment.
