AUSTIN (KXAN) — University of Texas at Austin police say it has identified a suspect after responding to what it referred to as a robbery Wednesday on Guadalupe Street.

Initially, UT police tweeted they were looking for two suspects in connection with an apparent robbery at 2244 Guadalupe St., the address for a University Federal Credit Union branch next to the UT Co-Op.

On Thursday, an employee with the credit union clarified that no actual robbery took place, but rather it was a “disruptive member of the public” that drew the police presence.

UT police say there was never a threat to the public.

When asked for more information, UT police referred KXAN to the Austin Police Department. We contacted them and will update this story when we hear back.
