Student arrested for assault

A male resident student was arrested after he punched another male student in the face and broke his nose at around 2 a.m. on March 30 at Dewey College.

The defendant had been unwantedly following the victim, a commuter who was walking a female student to her room along with another friend with no affiliation to the university, while the four were coming back from a party on campus.

When the victim asked him to stop following them, the defendant punched him in the face. University Police arrested the individual and charged him with misdemeanor assault.

Three days later, the defendant filed a retaliatory harassment complaint, stating that he had a bump on his head caused by one of the people involved on the March 30 confrontation. Eric Olsen, assistant chief of patrol, said no charges are being made for the second complaint.
