Bomb threat empties Stamford downtown buildings

May 15, 2019

STAMFORD — The employees of several downtown offices were told to take an early lunch and leave their building after a bomb threat was received at a property management company.

Not knowing which property was in danger and out of an abundance of caution, the property management firm told the companies occupying the buildings to let their employees go to lunch while an investigation was underway, police said.

Police, which did not ask for any evacuations of the buildings, began looking through the buildings at about 12:45 p.m.

The offices included those occupied by Indeed, the jobs-search firm at 177 Broad St.

The property management firm RFR manages the Indeed offices as well as 300 Atlantic Street, 1, 2, 3, and 4 Stamford Plaza and Canterbury Green Apartments.

By about 1:30 p.m., staff at 177 Broad St. began filing back into their building.

RFR did not answer a call for comment.
