A man was put in handcuffs and taken to the hospital after multiple witnesses say he screamed about ISIS and yelled at a female student on the first floor of the UNF library this afternoon.

Police said this was a “mental health case” involving a young man in crisis who needs help.

The man was handcuffed at roughly 2:30 p.m. by UNFPD, next to the Brooks College of Health. JSO and Jacksonville Fire and Rescue were also present on the scene.

He was put on a stretcher before being taken to a local hospital.
