Tools

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio says Wednesday night's home game against Eastern Michigan is postponed because the campus shut down as a precaution amid a search for an armed robbery suspect.

The Bobcats (15-5, 6-0 Mid-American Conference) say the game against Eastern Michigan (10-10, 3-3 MAC) has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. on Feb. 20 in Athens.

Ohio University officials had called in extra police officers and notified students Wednesday morning following an armed robbery at an apartment complex near campus. The school says the suspect allegedly had a handgun and fled on foot in the direction of the university.

The university was expected to reopen Thursday.
