LOS ANGELES -- Battery charges may be filed this week against the University of Southern California's phantom pedicurist, dubbed Leonardo da Toenail by campus police.

Investigators said the suspect, whose name has not been disclosed, has been crawling underneath library tables and painting the exposed toenails of unsuspecting female students.


Campus police were first notified of 'Toenail' when a female student complained she walked into Doheny Library with pink nails but walked out with green ones.

The city attorney's office will decide Friday whether to file misdemeanor battery charges against the man.
