Chicago Police arrested a person in the North Side Rogers Park neighborhood Friday who admitted making threatening phone calls to Loyola University.
A male called 311 on Friday and indicated that “harm would be done” at Loyola on Friday, according to a letter the director of campus safety sent out to the university students and staff.
Police presence on both Loyola campuses was increased Friday as a result of the threat, the letter said.
About 12:15 p.m., police arrested a suspect near West Pratt and North Wayne, and the suspect admitted making the threatening calls, according to an alert posted on Loyola’s website.
Police could not immediately provide further information on the incident.
