LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - University of Kansas police are trying to determine if two masked men who disrupted classes were playing a prank or were a serious safety problem.

The men, wearing Guy Fawkes masks, walked into classes Wednesday at two buildings and threatened action against the Kappa Sigma fraternity, which is suspended after allegations of sexual assaults occurring at the frat house.

Police spokesman Capt. James Anguiano said the men were questioned after the incidents. No weapons were found.

Wednesday was Guy Fawkes Day, when the British commemorate a plot to blow up the English Parliament in 1605. The Fawkes mask has become a staple at modern protests.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1s8V1aZ ) that Anguiano says investigators don’t want to violate free speech rights but disorderly conduct charges are possible.
