Four LSU Fans Assaulted After West Virginia Game

New, comments

Following Saturday's 47-21 victory by the LSU Tigers over the West Virginia Mountaineers in Morgantown, four LSU fans were assaulted according to the Morgantown Police Department.

It happened in the Purple Lot as the fans were leaving in their vehicle headed toward Route 705, police said in a news release. That’s when an unidentified person threw a rock through the open window of the victim’s car. When the driver asked a group of people standing nearby if they threw the rock, police say the group approached the car and assaulted the driver.

The three passengers were also assaulted when they got out of the car and attempted to help the driver. The driver was rushed to the hospital and surgery was required.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Morgantown Police Department at 304-284-7454 or the West Virginia University Police at 304-293-2677.
