Student suffers baseball bat attack

first_imgAstudent was attacked with a baseball bat on Saturday in what has been described as an “unprovoked attack”. The student, who asked to remain anonymous, told Cherwell, “I find it strange that someone would carry a baseball bat around with them, waiting for something like this to happen.” The assault took place just outside St Hilda’s College after two students got into an argument with a man in a car. As they cycled back into college, the man followed the pair and assaulted one of them on the shoulder. One St Hilda’s student commented, “It seems like a completely unprovoked attack. No one is safe.”center_img They added, “If anyone witnessed the attack, they are asked to contact Oxford police station using 101.” A Thames Valley Police spokesperson confirmed, “A man was cycling along Cowley Place near St Hilda’s College in Oxford at around 8.10pm last Saturday (18/5), when a car believed to be a silver vauxhall vectra pulled up in front of him and a man got out of the car and assaulted him with a baseball bat.”last_img
