Student reports assault on High Street

At 9 p.m. Tuesday, officers reportedly met with a Miami University senior who said he had been assaulted in front of Jimmy John’s.

The male reportedly told police he and his girlfriend were walking on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant when a short, possibly tan male bumped into him for no reason. As he continued walking, a tall, black male in a blue shirt reportedly punched him in the throat.

The student told police he began to run away but was struck in the back. When he continued to run, the taller male reportedly chased him for some time but eventually stopped.

The victim reportedly told police the taller male had yelled the shorter male’s name but he didn’t remember what it was.

There are currently no suspects in the case.
