A student received a harassing phone call Tuesday night, reports stated.

"No, not necessarily," the caller replied, reports stated.

The caller then asked if the student could help him.

The student asked what he needed help with, and the caller responded, "Can you help me finish masturbating?" reports stated.

The student immediately hung up the phone. She was unable to trace the call, reports stated.

She told police she doesn't know who the caller was and doesn't want to press charges if the person is caught, reports stated.
