Northwest’s University Police Department investigated a terrorist threat made by a juvenile at Perrin Hall Jan. 22. The person who made the threat is not a Northwest student, and where they are officially from was not disclosed.
University Police Chief Clarence Green said a person located off campus called another person on campus when they made the threat. The juvenile threatened that they had a bomb.
The UPD looked into the threat to determine its severity. Shortly after, they determined it was not a major threat and that campus was safe. The investigation of this threat is closed.
“We were notified immediately and believed that the campus was not in danger,” Green said.
