Egg Harbor Twp. Man Sues Maryland College Over Attack
A man attacked by a baseball bat-wielding college student has sued the school where the attack happened, saying it failed to protect the community from the suspect who was later accused of cannibalism.
Twenty-three-year-old Joshua Ceasar of Egg Harbor Township, N.J., was left partially blind after the attack on the campus of Baltimore's Morgan State University in 2012. The assault came days before the student, Alexander Kinyua, told authorities he killed a man staying with his family and ate the man's heart and parts of his brain.
Ceasar's lawyer, Steven Silverman, said in the lawsuit filed Thursday that Morgan State ignored escalating warning signs that Kinyua was unstable and violent and posed a threat to others. Silverman said he will be asking for millions of dollars.
