NDSP investigates assault

Sam Davis | Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) is investigating an alleged assault that took place around 1:20 a.m. Sunday outside of Legend’s of Notre Dame, according to Dave Chapman, assistant director of NDSP.

Chapman said a man reported the assault after he exchanged words with another man, who then hit him in the face with his fists.

The man was treated at a local hospital and has been released, he said.

Chapman said he cannot disclose whether one or both of the men are students at the University because of privacy issues.

A suspect has been identified, but Chapman said NDSP cannot release any further details because the case is still under investigation.

“We talked to some witnesses and we will go from there,” he said. “The case is still under investigation.”
