A firearm threat occurred at The Province Apartments last night around 11, though nothing was stolen and no direct threats were made.

Contrary to the email alert sent to students around 1:00 a.m. by Wright State police, no robbery occurred, according Captain David Tidd of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.

Tidd said that the victim came across a man on the stairway who said “hey,” and pointed what the victim thought was a firearm at him. The victim then ran from the area, and the man did not follow. The Province security was contacted immediately after.

Wright State Police Captain David Ratliff said the email included all of the information that the department had received at the time.

The suspect is an African-American male, standing 5’4” to 5’5” tall with a black baseball cap, according to the alert from WSUPD.
