NBCmiami– A South Florida college campus is on high alert, as a serial foot sniffer is on the prowl.
The Florida International University Police Department said a man has been crawling underneath tables at the FIU Library to take a sniff at feet.
The creepy crawler was caught in the act in photos. FIU Police said the man was seen acting suspiciously at the Green Library at FIU on Aug. 29.
“That is extremely bizarre. I don’t understand why someone would want to do that,” said FIU student, Helen Wagner.

Students were skeeved out to hear that a man has been underneath tables, smelling the feet of unsuspecting females. No one was injured in the one incident, but some ladies said they’re going to make sure to look down when they’re studying in the library.
The sneaky smeller is described as being in his late 40’s or early 50’s, about 200 pounds and around six-feet-tall. He is bald with short, gray hair and a goatee. He was last seen driving a scooter.
Investigators hope the newly-released photos will help them stay one step ahead of this guy.
Some students didn’t take this seriously, but this is no laughing matter for FIU. On Monday, they released this statement, saying in part:
“FIUPD takes these reports seriously and continues to investigate the matter. The staff at the Green Library has been notified and has been asked to contact FIUPD if they see this individual. FIUPD would like to remind everyone that if you see any suspicious behavior, please contact the FIUPD at 305-348-2626 immediately.”
This is more than just an invasion of space. If he’s caught, this creep could most likely face charges of lewd and lascivious behavior.
If you recognize the man or have any information, call police at (305) 348-2626.
Foot Fetish is a weird thing. Of all the fetishes I wanna say feet is the most common one. Frankly I’m a little bit worried im beginning to look like a square prude for not having a foot fetish, but I just can’t bring my self to like it. This guy especially is revolting to me. I mean sniffing feet? I can see in sex when things get out of control maybe a finger or a toe slips into the mouth. That i can see get kinky for a bit but just sniffing toes? I dont see how it does anything. I mean is this the only way this guy can get off or something? like his brain triggers a boner by a certain scent of feet? If thats the case at some point he has to take a long look in the mirror and tell himself that he needs help or at least stop the sexual repressed urges that comes with him smelling foot odor. That time should probably be now since he got caught crawling underneath tables of a college library smelling the feet of college students.
p.s- I doubt he’s a student but maybe he can kinda pass this off as a science experiment.
