Threatening graffiti found at Curry College

March 1, 2019

MILTON, Mass. (AP) — Threatening graffiti has been found at a Massachusetts college, prompting officials to step up police patrols.

Curry College spokesman Terence Burke says the graffiti was found inside a restroom in an academic building on its Milton campus Thursday.

Burke says Milton police were notified, and they found no immediate threat. He did not elaborate on what the graffiti said.

The graffiti has since been removed, and police are increasing patrols throughout campus.

Burke says the college is committed to creating a “safe, inclusive and bias-free environment.”

Milton Deputy Police Chief James O’Neil says the person responsible for the graffiti could face up to one year in prison or a $1,000 fine.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the college’s Department of Public Safety.
