Did they ever catch youths who assaulted the student last year and mugged him? The description of the alleged is similar?

You've got to be kidding me. Public safety is leaving out the fact that a female student bore the brunt of the attack and was punched multiple times in the face until she suffered a broken eye socket. What is slightly more alarming is that this wasn't anything finance related, this was purely for kicks.

Where is the police department, where is public safety, WHY didn't the public safety car that these students tried to flag down see them, etc, etc...
