SIU Carbondale Public Safety Alert Sent Early Wednesday

SIU Campus Wall

Despite an early morning SIU Alert, authorities say there is no present threat or danger to the SIU Carbondale Campus.

The alert came just after 4am today (Thursday) stating that around 11:30pm last night, the Department of Public Safety received notice of two female students at a local hospital.

Both reported they received non-life threatening injuries during an altercation with another student. The incident reportedly occurred near Thompson Point. The individuals are all known to one another and this incident appears isolated.

If you have information about this crime or have witnessed other crimes in this area or on campus, please call the SIU Department of Public Safety at 618-453-3771.
