A maintenance staff member at Dominican was arrested for disorderly conduct after police alleged he was watching a female student shower in a residence hall bathroom on March 4.
The victim identified the suspect as Mateusz Sokacz, 22, who allegedly watched her “as she showered by looking over a wall that divides the showers,” a River Forest Police press release said.
Eurest Services immediately suspended and has since terminated Sokacz, Rebecca Monroe, Director of Communications at Eurest Services said.
“He was also immediately barred from campus, his clearance was rescinded, and keys confiscated,” Monroe said.
Sokacz was initially employed by KIMCO and Eurest Services later bought out the company and Sokacz remained in employment.
“We will treat this seriously. All appropriate people were notified within 24 hours,” Senior Vice President for Administration in the Business Department at Dominican Amy McCormack said. “We consider this a very serious and unfortunate incident.”
“I would hope students would feel comfortable reporting any suspicious activity or uncomfortable situations,” McCormack said.
Sokacz, of the 3400 block of Laramie Avenue in Chicago, is scheduled to appear at the Maybrook courthouse April 15.
