A suspicious man seen at a Menifee charter school Thursday prompted a lockdown of the K-12 campus and a major law enforcement response, though no evidence of a threat was found.

A security guard at Santa Rosa Academy in the 27500 block of La Piedra Road, near Haun Road, called 911 about 11:25 a.m., when the unknown party was spotted, according to the Menifee Police Department.

“We sent numerous officers to the campus,” police Capt. David Gutierrez told City News Service. “There was a lot of information coming and going … (and) out of an abundance of caution, all the classrooms were locked down.”

Gutierrez said that no one was injured and an exhaustive search of the campus was completed by 12:30 p.m., at which point the lockdown was lifted.

No one was arrested.
