Police: Elementary school sweep fails to turn up reported masked man

Birmingham Police are searching for a masked man in dark clothing who entered Glen Iris Elementary School Thursday night.

Birmingham Police failed to find evidence of a masked man who had been reported entering Glen Iris Elementary school Thursday afternoon.

A fourth grader alerted a teacher after the student observed a man with a mask and dark clothing enter the school.

However, video surveillance did not capture the subject nor did a police sweep of the grounds. K-9 units were also called in to assist.

The children participating in after-school programs were ushered into the gym as a precaution.
