University of Alabama student, 19-year-old John Threadgill is now banned from campus after a bizarre crime spree in Tuscaloosa.

Police say Threadgill pulled down a woman's pants while she was jogging near the campus on Monday.

The woman struggled with the suspect and was able to escape.

Later, Threadgill reportedly broke into a nearby home and stole women's underwear.
