COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Police have no suspects and student fear is high following a weekend attack against two University of Maryland students by a group of at least eight individuals on a secluded campus footpath.
“It definitely frightens me walking back here at night,” says junior Rosina Moscariello, a varsity cheerleader.
“I love this school,”says freshman Taylor Jordan, but she also says she’s worried about her safety.
“Honestly, a lot of times when I’m walking in this area I don’t necessarily feel safe, especially when I’m by myself, so hearing about a robbery in this area makes me feel more concerned about my safety.”
Police say two men, who are students, were attacked by a group of at least eight people early Saturday morning on a footpath connecting the main campus to the University View apartments.
One of the students suffered a broken nose and lacerations in the attack.
While police have no suspects, investigators are checking nearby university and commercial buildings for any surveillance video that might help identify the attackers.
