From Local Sources
FERDINAND — The Ferdinand Police Department responded to Ferdinand Elementary School this morning for a lockdown situation involving a suspicious man on the playground.
According to the police department, school officials approached the subject, described as an Asian male, and attempted to talk with him, but the man proceeded to walk behind a utility building east of the school.
Officers arrived on scene, and initiated a check of the school building, which was found secure. The man was later located three blocks from the school and an interpreter was called due to a language barrier. Upon speaking with the subject, it was determined that no threat existed at any time at the school.
The school has returned to normal operations.
The Ferdinand Police Department was assisted by the Dubois Count Sheriff's Office, Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officers and the Indiana State Police.
