BLOOMINGTON, Indiana — An Indiana University employee accused of committing one of a series of acts of anti-Jewish vandalism in the college town of Bloomington has surrendered to face a criminal mischief charge.

The Herald-Times reported that 54-year-old Mark Zacharias turned himself in at the Monroe County Jail just before noon Friday and later posted bond. He would not comment as he climbed into a waiting car, and a phone listing for him could not be found.

He allegedly threw a rock Nov. 30 that shattered the glass of an information board at IU's at Goodbody Hall, which houses the school's Jewish studies program.

Hutton Honors College Dean Matthew Auer said Zacharias has worked as a scholarship coordinator at the school since 2003 but was suspended with pay Dec. 9.
