    A 21-year-old suburban man was charged in connection with offensive fliers found on the University of Chicago's campus recently. 

    The university said Matthew Urbanik, of Schaumburg, was charged Thursday with one count of felony criminal damage to property.

    Urbanik was also permanently barred from university property, though school officials said he had no known connection to the campus. 

    More than a dozen racist and anti-Semitic posters were found on campus earlier this month.
