Police have made contact with a man who was the subject of an unauthorized entry at Moore High School last week.

Police say the man, who has not yet been identified, is cooperating and there is no threat toward the high school. They first announced they were searching for the man on Wednesday.

The incident was not reported to police until Sept. 26. Police held a press conference Wednesday afternoon regarding the incident. Police described the person as an Arab male in his 40s with a thick Arabic accent. They say while he was on campus the man contacted two students and a teacher and asked "suspicious" questions.

According to Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis, who spoke during the press conference, the man was able to get inside of the school through an unlocked door at the entrance of the performing arts building. The entire incident only lasted approximately three or four minutes.

Moore Police believe this incident has nothing to do with the attack at Vaughan Foods, which took place days later.

Police say they cannot disclose what questions the man asked until they first make contact with him. However, multiple sources tell News 9 that the man was asking questions about how many police officers worked there on a normal basis and how close the nearest police department was.

The FBI has also looked into this incident. 

More information will be released soon. According to Moore Police, the man is not facing any criminal charges at this time.
