University investigating noose fashioned from plastic wrap
The University of Maryland Police Department is conducting a “hatebias” investigation into a piece of plastic wrap shaped like a noose that was found on campus.
“Earlier today, we were notified of a knotted piece of plastic wrap laying on the ground in the 7500 block of Baltimore Ave.,” the police department said Tuesday in a statement. “An officer met with two individuals who were walking south when they noticed the item. Police were notified out of concern for possible hate-bias.”
A noose was found in a university fraternity house earlier this year.
