Details of a security alert on the McGill campus last Friday

Last Friday morning, at 9:30 a man, wearing camouflage fatigues and carrying a case of some sort, was intercepted in the McGill University Strathcona building.

The individual was known to be a former McGill student, he subsequently left the campus and was apprehended by the police on Prince Arthur Street. The University has been advised that he was not armed and that he has subsequently been released by the police as they were unable to find any reason to hold him.

In the early afternoon, some members of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology and security received some threatening emails. McGill Security and the Montreal Police will continue to monitor the situation.

Please keep your eyes and ears open and advise McGill Security of any threats, strange activities, suspicious circumstances, or peculiar patterns of behaviour.
