A New York Times columnist whose work includes extensive coverage of issues regarding race and police relations says Yale University police held his son at gunpoint over the weekend while looking for a burglary suspect.
Charles Blow first tweeted about the incident Saturday evening saying his son was "accosted" by a Yale police officer while leaving the campus library. Blow continued to tweet he was "fuming" and referenced the recent high-profile deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner at the hands of police officers.
Yale Police say they were looking for a suspect they believe repeatedly stole from students in residential housing on campus this past week.
