Cornell Police responded to reports of an ongoing fight at approximately at 2:20 a.m. on Sunday. The exchange left one male Cornellian with “substantial injuries.”
When the officers arrived to the scene they found a male Cornell student who had been injured during the dispute that had just taken place on College Ave. near Myron Taylor Hall, according to a CUPD crime alert.
The injured student reported that he was trying to defuse a fight between a friend — who was not a Cornellian — and several Asian males and an Asian female, the release said. The victim then reported that he was assaulted by additional Asian people who joined the group after the altercation had started.
The cause or nature of this altercation are currently unknown to the CUPD. Immediately after the fight all suspects fled the area, heading southbound on College Avenue.
Despite incurring serious injuries, the student victim refused medical treatment at the scene. CUPD’s investigation of this incident is open and ongoing.
