Updated: Cash Reward Offered for Tips in Salisbury University Vandalism Investigation

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- The Salisbury University Police Department is investigating recent acts of vandalism on campus that include racist and sexually-explicit graffiti as well as threats of violence.

A post on social media that includes a photo taken by a concerned student shows hateful and threatening words written in a stairwell in Fulton Hall. One part of the vandalism mentions Sandy Hook and uses the "N-word."

Students received an email from Salisbury University leaders denouncing a similar incident just last week.

In a statement to WBOC, Salisbury University said administrators met with students Tuesday to address concerns regarding the vandalism.

"The university is taking immediate action to increase security on campus, and administrators will continue to meet with students as a long-term plan is determined," the statement reads. "The SU Police Department has detailed protocols regarding these kinds of incidents, including working with allied law enforcement agencies. Any suspect arrested in connection with the incidents will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, as well as through applicable university policies.

"Such abhorrent acts do not reflect the core values of our community," the statement continued. "As a university, SU remains resolute together and condemns any and all forms of hatred, racism, bigotry or supremacist ideology that seek to hurt, terrorize, bully or marginalize any members of our community."

The university said it is offering a reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest and prosecution in the case. Those with information are asked to call SU Police at 410-543-6222. Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore is also offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in these cases. Crime Solvers will not ask your name and guarantees anonymity to anyone that provides information in this case. Call 410-548-1776 with information. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
