U Of A Suspends Students Accused of Assaulting Black Man

UofA Police

Two University of Arizona students accused of assaulting a black student on campus have been suspended from the school.

Lawyers for 20-year-old Matthew Frazier and 19-year-old Matthew Rawlings confirmed the suspensions to the Arizona Daily Star following criminal arraignment hearings Monday in Pima County Justice Court.

School officials have declined to say whether Frazier and Rawlings faced any discipline after their code of conduct cases were handled by the UA's Dean of Students, citing federal education privacy laws.

Frazier and Rawlings are facing charges of misdemeanor assault in connection with the September 10 incident.

The Star reports that the two students waived their right to appear at the arraignment hearings.

A judge ordered both men to refrain from having contact with the victim, whose name hasn't been released.
