Do Schizophrenics Commonly Accuse Think Others are Possessed?

When a mentally ill person begins to talk about other people being "possessed by demons" is that a red flag?

A 30-ish male college student whom I know of has told someone that he suspects a female student of being possessed by demons. This male student is pretty strange and I think schizophrenic.
Is this a common delusion among schizophrenics? Is it a warning? Everyone keeps telling me the guy is harmless but I have reason to think otherwise.
Citations and links would be particularly helpful.
