On Tuesday evening between 8:45 p.m. and 10 p.m., a female Elon student had racial slurs yelled at her from a vehicle while walking on campus between the Inman Admissions Welcome Center and the Koury Business Center, according to Dean of Students Smith Jackson and Vice President of University Communications Dan Anderson. The student called campus police and reported the incident.
It is unknown exactly what was said to her.
Since then, the university and campus police have identified the driver of the car as a non-Elon student using security cameras and have issued a no-trespassing citation to them for Elon's campus. They are now working to identify the other three people in the car to issue the same citation.
Anderson also added that the suspects were high-school aged or recent high school graduates.
Elon News Network will continue to update this story.
