A student was arrested for assaulting his roommate in Village B Saturday afternoon, according to the Department of Public Safety.
The Metropolitan Police Department initially responded to the scene, according to the DPS incident account.
MPD classified the incident as simple assault and reported that the victim sustained minor injuries to his right wrist and left elbow.
According to MPD, the victim, also a student, reported that he had a verbal altercation with the suspect over the victim’s property at 3:24 p.m. The suspect then entered the victim’s room without permission and pushed him into a desk, causing the injuries.
Georgetown Emergency Response Medical Services arrived at the scene to treat the victim but did not transport him to a hospital.
MPD classified the incident as intrafamily violence because the two students lived together.
According to university spokeswoman Stacy Kerr, the incident is now being handled solely by MPD.
