PLAINFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — Sunday evening, officials with the Plainfield Police Department say they were made aware of threats made to The Shops at Perry Crossing and other retailers in Plainfield.

According to a release, the department responded to the threat and “is doing everything possible to maintain the safety and security of the employees and visitors at the Shopping Center and other retail stores in the Plainfield area.”

Police say many businesses planned to remain open until their designated closing time.

Authorities ask that if people witness any suspicious activity they report it to police immediately.

The Shops at Perry Crossing was evacuated Friday evening after a threat was posted on social media. Earlier this week threats were made against schools in Plainfield and Danville. Plainfield police said they believe the people responsible for those threats are also responsible for the threat made against the mall.

A Plainfield Police spokeswoman confirmed that Sunday night’s threats were from the same Facebook source as Friday night’s threats to the mall and the threats to Plainfield and Danville high schools.
