Trespasser Questioned at Local Middle School
School and police officials released a joint statement addressing a suspicious incident that occurred at Lincoln Middle School (LMS) Friday, Nov. 10, assuring families that the school is safe.
Alameda Unified School District (AUSD), Alameda Police Department (APD) and LMS officials described the disurbance that took place Friday afternoon and what actions were taken to resolve the issue.
“We would like to reassure all community members that officers with APD have investigated the situation, interviewed the young man in question, and believe he does not pose a threat to LMS or any other campus in Alameda,” read the statement.
According to reports, an unidentified male walked onto the LMS campus, 1250 Fernside Blvd., and made disturbing comments to students and staff causing them to feel uncomfortable.
APD was notified of the incident around 12:45 p.m. APD said no crime was committed and the suspect apologized for the disturbance and agreed to stay away from the campus.
Many parents expressed their fears to school administrators. To calm their nerves APD stationed several officers at LMS Monday, Nov. 13. In addition, LMS staff and all AUSD principals were briefed about the incident. APD said they will continue to evaluate its school intruder protocols.
