Safety Warning

Campus Safety is investigating incidents involving a suspicious individual in Bogar Hall on Aug. 17, 2021, and in Seibert Hall (basement) on Aug. 23, 2021, as well as a theft.

On both dates, multiple staff members reported an unknown person of interest entering an open office, stating he was looking for an SU student. The name provided by the person of interest is not a current member of our community. Following the second encounter with the same person of interest, a theft was reported on the afternoon of Aug. 23 from an office on the ground floor of Seibert Hall that no one was in at the time.

The person of interest is described as male, Black, in his mid-30’s to 40’s, wearing a white T-shirt, blue shorts, dark sunglasses and black sneakers, and carrying what appears to be papers (pictured below). He may be driving a black or dark-colored Chevy Impala. Anyone with information regarding these incidents should contact Campus Safety at 570-372-4444.

Here are snapshots of the person of interest:
