Two separate aggravated assaults reported over the weekend
Both victims sustained non-life threatening injuries
Two individuals were sent to the hospital over the weekend for injuries sustained from unrelated aggravated assaults, according to two separate crime alerts sent to the student body.
At approximately 2:20 a.m. Saturday a University-affiliated victim was allegedly approached and assaulted by eight to nine males on Bishop Place, adjacent to College Avenue, who then fled. There were no weapons involved in this incident and no descriptions of the perpetrators, according to the first crime alert.
On Sunday at approximately 1 a.m., a non-University affiliated victim was allegedly assaulted with a sharp object while intervening in an altercation between two people he did not know on High Street, between Somerset and Hamilton streets, according to the second crime alert.
Descriptions of the perpetrators are limited at this time.
Both victims were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to the crime alerts.
