Rutgers police are seeking three men they say attacked University students early Saturday morning in New Brunswick.

According to police the assault happened at approximately 3:30 a.m. at the intersection of Mine Street and Union Street.

The students reported that while walking they were approached by three males, and after a brief verbal exchange, the males began to strike the victims, causing one to fall to the ground, police said. The males then fled the area in an unknown direction, police said.

One student sustained a non-life threatening injury and was treated and released at a local hospital, police said. No weapons were used during the incident and no demands for property were made to the victims, police said.

A statement from police didn't specify what the verbal exchange had been over.

All three are described as white. One was wearing a red jacket with a grey hooded shirt and blue jeans, police said. Another had long blond hair and was wearing a baseball cap with a grey hooded shirt, police said. No further description was available of the third.

Police are asking anyone with information or who may have been in the area at the time to contact the Rutgers Police Department Detective Bureau at 848-932-8025.
