UW-Stout Police investigating unprovoked attack on student

Menomonie (WQOW) - Police at UW-Stout are investigating a random, unprovoked attack on a student.

Police say a student was walking through the parking lot near Millennium Hall early Sunday morning when three men punched and kicked him repeatedly.

He was taken to the emergency room with non life threatening injuries.A witness saw the attack and tried to help and she was also hurt.

Police say the attackers were college aged men but are not sure if they are UW-Stout students.

“I don't believe the campus in any danger at this time,” said Sergeant Jason Spetz. “I believe from what we've gathered so far this was a random unprovoked act of violence. What we tell people is always make sure you're walking in a lit area, so stay in those areas, walk in a group at least with one other person and always be prepared to call police.”

If you have any information you are asked to call UW-Stout police.

Families of the victims are offering a one thousand dollar reward for information leading to an arrest
