IUPD confirms no active threat following reports of suspicious man

The IU Police Department confirmed there is no need for concern following reports of a suspicious man around campus, IUPD Deputy Chief Shannon Bunger said.

A student posted a witness’s concern on Facebook about a suspicious individual near a campus bus stop Monday, talking with someone on the phone and describing the witness’s appearance. The witness claimed to have called an IUPD investigator, who said multiple people had reported seeing the individual around campus.

“IU confirmed that this individual is a student,” Bunger said. “IUPD has followed up with the student who was cooperative and explained his actions throughout the day. Based on this information, there is no concern for the IU community.”
