In compliance with the "Timely Notice" provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Campus Security is giving notice of a Terroristic Threatening via phone at 1164 Bishop Street.
REPORTED OFFENSE: On 7-31-15 at 1:15 pm, HPU Downtown Security during patrols noted an elderly couple sitting at the shuttle stop benches. Security made their checks and noted a vehicle stop to pick up the couple. Security did not take note of vehicle or driver description. Security overheard the couple as they entered the vehicle that they were talked to concerning sitting on the shuttle stop benches. On 7-31-15 at 1:20 pm, unknown male contacted HPU Admissions Office and stated he will destroy the university if the president does not contact him in one hour. The caller left a phone number via caller identification. The Director of Security and Safety made contact with the male and identification was made. The male admits contacting the Admissions Office, denies making a threat but was frustrated that security questioned his elderly parents about sitting at the shuttle stop. The male further stated that he will not pose a threat to the university and will go through the Director of Security and Safety if he has any future concerns. HPU Security was spoken with on the parameters on those authorized to use the Fort Street Shuttle Stop. The Honolulu Police Department was notified and will initiate a police report.
Timely Warning to be posted on the HPU Pipeline and Security Department websites for information purposes.
