Indiana University reportedly has fired an employee who was identified as a suspect in one attack in a series on Jewish targets.

Mark Zacharias, the scholarship coordinator of IU’s Hutton Honors College Scholarship, was let go after working at the university for seven years, The Herald-Times in Bloomington reported Tuesday. He has been charged with felony institutional criminal mischief.

Zacharias had turned himself in on Dec. 17 and was released after posting a $500 bond.

He was suspended without pay on Dec. 9, The Associated Press reported.

Zacharias is accused of using a rock to break the staff directory glass display case for the Robert A. and Sandra B. Borns Jewish Studies Program on Nov. 30.
He has not been officially connected to the other recent incidents on the campus.

The other incidents include rocks thrown through the windows of two campus Jewish student centers and a rock thrown through the window of an apartment above the Chabad Jewish student center just off the university campus. In the latter incident, the rock nearly hit a student and put a hole in the opposite wall.

Also, eight religious volumes in Hebrew removed from shelves at a university library were urinated on in eight bathrooms in the library area, according to reports.
