RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Commonwealth University police are investigating razor blades discovered in two books at a bookstore on campus.
University police tell media outlets that students and staff have been alerted about the incidents.
Police say employees at the Barnes & Nobles bookstore on the Monroe Park campus discovered a razor blade in a book on Wednesday. The blade had been placed so that it would cut whoever removed the book from the shelf.
Last week, a razor blade was found in another book at the bookstore.
No one was injured in either incident.
Police say the bookstore’s employees are checking all bookshelves and taking other measures to ensure customers’ safety.
