A suspect has been identified in a series of attacks on Jewish targets at Indiana University.

An arrest warrant was issued against university employee Mark Zacharias on a charge of felony institutional criminal mischief. He was expected to turn himself in to police, according to reports.

Zacharias is the scholarship coordinator of IU’s Hutton Honors College Scholarship.

He 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.

Other recent incidents on the campus 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, located just off the university campus, nearly hitting a student and putting a hole in the opposite wall. In addition, eight religious volumes in Hebrew removed from shelves at a university library were urinated on in eight different bathrooms in the library area, according to reports.

Zacharias has not been officially connected to the other incidents.
