A threatening tweet is the reason behind a lockdown at a community college campus Wednesday.

Around 2:15 PM, school officials sent an email to students at the St. Louis Community College’s Meramec campus that said a student made a threat on twitter. The message expressed frustration over the financial aid process. The student turned herself in to the Kirkwood police.

Charges are pending against the student. The financial aid office reopened, but with an increased police presence.

   Embattled St. Louis Community College chancellor Myrtle Dorsey will likely keep her job another year.  That's despite criticism of the college's handling of an attack on a female student on the Meramec campus.  

   Critics say the suspected assailant shouldn't have been let go by campus police after he was initially picked up and students and staff should have been alerted to the attack right away.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the new chairman of the college Board of Trustees, Craig Larson expects Dorsey to complete the third year of her contract.   Larson told the paper that the final report on ans investigation into the incident will be out next month, and that could lead to personnel changes, but probably not involving Dorsey.

   There's more fallout from an attack on a student inside a community college restroom.  

   St. Louis Community College Chancellor Myrtle Dorsey announced in a letter Monday that the president of the Meramec campus, where the attack occurred, has resigned.  Meramec President George Wasson's resignation is effective immediately.  

   This follows sharp criticism about the college’s handling of the attack.  The suspect, 18 year old Jevon Mallory, had been taken into custody, immediately after the incident, but was released by campus police with a warning.  

   He was re-arrested five days later and is currently in jail, facing felony assault charges.

   Another issue of contention is the fact that no campus alerts had been issued after the attack.  

   Wildwood Campus President Pam McIntyre will take over as interim president of the Meramec campus during a search for Wasson’s replacement. Wildwood’s vice president will be interim president of that campus.

   Officials with the St. Louis Community College at Meramec continue to be questioned about the way an alleged assault in a women's restroom was handled.  

   A student, 18 year old Jevon Mallory, was arrested Tuesday and charged with an April 18th attack on a female student. But critics are questioning the five day delay.

   Campus police had taken Mallory into custody on the day Blythe Grupe reported being choked in a restroom.  But no charges were filed, and no alert was sent to the campus community.  Instead, police let Mallory go with a stern warning not to return to campus.

   A college spokesperson told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that campus police hadn't initially view the attack as serious since there were no weapons involved.  

   After Grupe and her parents continued to push the issue, Mallory was arrested. He's now jailed in St. Louis County on felony assault charges.

A St. Louis Community College student is waiting anxiously for her accused attacker to be charged.

19-year-old Blythe Grupe was in class in the Communications North building last Thursday when she says a man she didn't know followed her into the women's bathroom on the Meramec campus in Kirkwood and began choking her.  

She tells Fox 2 news she screamed--an instructor rushed to her rescue, restraining the man until police arrived.  Chief Banta says they arrested the 18-year-old male student, but had to let him go until warrants are issued...

"Typically, when we arrest somebody, even for felonies, they can't be held for more than 24-hours."

Grupe says she  wasn't seriously hurt, but she says she won't rest easy until her attacker is prosecuted.  

The  suspect has been banned from campus and the case turned over to the St. Louis County prosecutor.
