MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — University of Minnesota police officers say they warned two students after they were caught engaged in sexual activity at the U’s Bell Museum last week.
According to the police report, a 21-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were discovered at the museum the afternoon of July 9.
Police said the man told them he and his girlfriend were “exploring the university” and found a private area inside the museum, where they removed their clothing. They heard people approaching, so they hid and put their clothes back on.
A witness told police that she found the two in the hiding spot and saw underwear and a condom wrapper on the ground. She told the two of them to get out.
That witness was a day camp leader who was leading a number of children through the museum that afternoon. Police said the other camp leader distracted the kids while the first was telling the two to get dressed and leave.
Police say no one actually witnessed any sexual activity in the incident, but the two students were issued a trespass warning.
