About the incident
Shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday morning, Providence police officers responded to a PC dormitory for an assault report.
The victim – an 18-year-old college student – told police she was in her dorm when two unidentified men entered her dorm and began recording the bedroom parties on a cellphone.
According to police, the victim said a friend of his went to take the suspect’s phone, at which point the suspect punched the victim in the face with the phone before fleeing.
The victim told police the suspect was a “black male in his early twenties.”
Police questioned the other subject still at the scene – who was issued a no trespassing order and released.
Detectives are currently investigating.
