LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette police are investigating what they call a "masked threat" that targeted Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski.

Police said it was mailed to the Lafayette fire station on Veterans Memorial Parkway Monday. It contained a letter with a photo copy of a newspaper clipping of a mayor in Poland who was recently stabbed while giving a public speech.

On the back of the letter it said "Everybody loves Tony."

There was no return address and police are taking the threat seriously.

It is not considered a direct threat, but LPD made the mayor aware of what happened.

Police ask anyone who may know something about the letter to come forward. You can reach Lafayette police at (765) 807-1200 or you can use the anonymous WeTip line at (800) 78-CRIME.
