Man Arrested After Entering Princeton University Chapel Armed with a Knife


Police took a man into custody after the suspect entered a house of worship on the campus of Princeton University.

According to Princeton University Spokesman Mr. Michael Hotchkiss, a 20-year-old man was arrested Saturday evening at the University Chapel after he was seen holding a knife with a four-inch blade in a non-threatening manner.

Spokesman Hotchkiss said the man, who is not a student at the University, was charged with disorderly conduct then released with a court date.

According to Hotchkiss, no one was threatened or injured although parishioners at the Chapel were ’concerned’.

The incident remains under investigation.
