MUPD is searching for a suspect who may be armed.

Marquette University Police Department has a suspect in custody for a domestic abuse situation. There is no longer a threat to campus, according to a safety alert sent Thursday at approximately 2:45 p.m.

MUPD sent out an initial safety alert Thursday at approximately 12:08 p.m., notifying students of a search for a potentially armed subject.

A female Marquette student was being stalked by the suspect. The 18-year-old suspect is not affiliated with Marquette.

According to the safety alert, the subject made verbal contact with the victim, threatening bodily harm to the victim and her friends at the 600 block of N. 23rd Street.
