(WEST LAFAYETTE) - Purdue police are investigating a report of a man that displayed a knife in a threatening manner at the Purdue Memorial Union.

WLFI reports, the incident happened around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday on the north side of the Union. Police told 24-Hour New 8's sister station, WLFI-TV, a man with a knife approached two university employees. The male and female staff members told police they did not know the man and that he did not demand anything from them, so this is not being investigated as an attempted robbery.

A message from the campus emergency status system said the man was last seen "heading toward Academy Park."
