Police activity increases to control minors on Broad Street

A TU Alert was sent to students around 9:30 p.m.

Philadelphia, Temple and SEPTA police worked together Friday night to control large groups of minors that had gathered on Broad Street around Main Campus, Temple police said.

The minors were gathered β€œat different points along Broad Street starting fighting and then harassing students,” Charlie Leone, the executive director of Campus Safety Services wrote in an email.

β€œAn increased police presence will continue along Broad Street and west of campus,” he added.

Police had been met with a similar scene last Saturday night, when minors crowded the corner of Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue. A TU Alert was not sent out that evening.
