​NSW Police still investigating UNSW threat posted on 4Chan

Anonymous message threatened university staff, students

New South Wales Police are still investigating a threat directed at UNSW staff and students posted on anonymous message board 4Chan.

The message was posted on Sunday.

It read:

“I finally managed to get a handgun. Australians, if you study at UNSW don’t go in tomorrow.”

A UNSW spokesperson said it was working closely with NSW Police during this time.

“Staff and students should remain vigilant and alert, but not alarmed. The university will operate business as usual today – classes will run as normal and students are expected to attend.”

“Police are advising this is a general, not a specific or direct threat.”
