Male student assaulted in Ashton Center dorm room

The victim was assaulted by two IU-Purdue University Indianapolis students and his roommate, IUPD Chief Keith Cash said in an email.

Cash said a verbal dispute began between the suspects and victim about the victim’s girlfriend, who used to date one of the suspects.

The victim was eventually struck in the face with a small wrench, and his cell phone and a window in the room were broken during the assault, Cash said.  The victim’s eye was swollen after the assault, but the victim declined medical treatment, Cash said.

Cash said the suspects have been identified, and IUPD will be interviewing them.
