ROCHESTER, Mich. (WXYZ) - Oakland University police are warning cell phone users of all ages to be careful about sending racy images after a student received some unwanted messages.
Investigators say a man in his late 60s accidentally sent two graphic texts to an OU student who lives on campus at Hill House. After she received the first message on Sept. 10, the student called the sender and left a voicemail telling him to stop. When she got another image from him on Sept. 16, she went to police and filed a report.
Police reached out to the man, who voluntarily came into the police station to answer questions.
"This is a big mistake. The individual thought he was talking to his girlfriend at the time," said Captain Mark Gordon.
The man sent the second message because he thought his girlfriend was joking with him.
After the man was questioned, charges were not filed.
"The bottom line is that it’s a dangerous activity to be involved in, and I think he realized that after the fact," said Gordon.
