A Syracuse University student was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries early Sunday morning after he was allegedly assaulted by three males, according to a Department of Public Safety news alert.
The alleged incident occurred on the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Redfield Place at 2:11 a.m. Sunday when the hospitalized student and two friends were returning from a party. One of the suspects bumped into the student who reported the incident. A verbal exchange ensued, initiated by the suspect, the alert said.
Two of the suspects then approached the student who was sent to the hospital and one of his friends, allegedly kicking and punching them. The third suspect attempted to restrain his friends, before they all fled onto Lancaster Avenue, the alert said.
All three suspects were described by the victim as white and about 20 years old. The victim said one suspect was about 5 feet 8 inches and wore a dark hooded sweatshirt and jeans, one suspect was about 5 feet 11 inches and the final suspect was about 6 feet 4 inches and wore a beige shirt.
