Patton Township, PA (SafeCITY) - Ryan Ho, a 33-year-old Pennsylvania man has been jailed after he allegedly entered several college dorms naked.

According to police, Ho was arrested on a report that a man wearing a ski mask and no pants slipped into a woman's apartment, assaulted her and then fled the scene.

Investigators say Ho was apprehended a short time later when officers found him crossing through a field in the opposite direction of the crime scene.

Now Ho, who has been dubbed the 'Penn State Flasher,' has been charged with 12 additional cases. Most of the cases involve a man who would enter a single woman's dorm wearing either a ski mask or a surgical mask. He would then drop his pants.

The victims, most of which were Asian, stated the attacker would remain absolutely silent.

Police say Ho admitted his involvement in each incident, providing specific details about each case. He told investigators that he gained access to the women's dorms and apartments by waiting until one of them left. He would then slip into the room before the door closed completely.

The case solves a string like-crimes that began back in August, 2009.

Ho was booked into the Centre County Jail on 15 counts of burglary, 18 counts of criminal trespass, 17 counts of indecent exposure, 4 counts of indecent assault, 4 counts of loitering, 4 counts of prowling, 3 counts of open lewdness, 4 counts of summary harrassment and one count of attempted burglary. His bail has been set at $100,000.
