Individual Arrested In Barnard Hall For Trespassing

A man unaffiliated with the university was arrested in Barnard Hall for “criminal trespass and unlawful possession of marijuana.” According to reports from the Deputy Commissioner of Public Information’s office, the arrest occurred around 7:25 pm Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old, African-American individual was observed heading into a stairwell towards a “weight room,” believed to be the Barnard gym in the basement of the building. He then was stopped by Barnard Public Safety.

It is unclear when the NYPD was called, but the man was advised that he was “not welcome at that location” and was issued a trespass notice, police said. Then, the man was arrested and searched, revealing marijuana on his person.

At the time of this post, Barnard students have not been contacted about the police presence on campus. Barnard Communications has not responded to a request for comment.

Edit, 2/13/18, 2:47 pm: Barnard Communications confirmed the series of events. Below is their statement:

“Last night, Barnard Public Safety apprehended an unauthorized individual in Barnard Hall. The person was escorted off campus and arrested by the NYPD for trespassing.”
