UNFPD arrested the man who inappropriately touched a student in November outside of the library, according to an Osprey Update.

UNFPD identified the man as 45-year-old Eyad H. Tawil, who was charged with battery and was booked into the Duval County Jail Jan. 18.

He was released on bond later on Jan. 18 for $7,503, according to JSO.

In November, Tawil posted an ad on Craiglist posing as a single dad looking for a babysitter. A student responded to the ad and met with Tawil outside of the Thomas G. Carpenter library on Nov. 9. The student got into Tawil’s car so that they could talk “privately.”

After asking about pay, Tawil told the student he would pay her $1,700 but that he also needed a “friend.” He proceeded to touch her crotch area and later her breast over her clothing according to the police report.

Tawil has been banned from UNF’s campus by UNFPD since Nov. 14.

Spinnaker will update with more information as soon as it becomes available.
