Univer­sity in­ves­ti­gat­ing noose fash­ioned from plas­tic wrap

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO - — Brad­ford Richard­son

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.
