Police ask for more information on assault

Observer Staff Report | Friday, January 22, 2010

Investigations are underway regarding the three students who were assaulted while attempting to board the Transpo bus route 7A during the early morning hours of Jan. 17, police said earlier this week.

Police asked witnesses to share any type of information they have.

“Even if people think it might not be significant, it may be the break that we need,” Assistant Director for Notre Dame Security Police Dave Chapman said.

Chapman said any information about the attackers and their car or license plate number could be helpful in identifying the person responsible for the assault.

“Anything they saw, anything they heard, anything at all,” he said. “If we get two or three people, we can put their stories together.”

The assault occurred at around 2 a.m. Sunday on the corner of Notre Dame Ave. and Miner St., Chapman said.

Witnesses should call Sergeant Al Deroo at 574-235-9263 or South Bend Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP with information.
