    The men asked the student why he wasn’t being social and he stopped his work to introduce himself, police reported.

    One of the other men then asked the student to introduce himself to one of the man’s friends standing by the door, according to the report.

    When the student returned to his desk he noticed his black wallet was missing, police reported.

    He asked the other men in the room if they had taken his wallet, according to the report. They all denied it and emptied out their pockets in front of the student, police reported.

    The other men then left the room, according to the report.

    At approximately 10:40 p.m., the student’s roommate saw the men in the hallway of the building, police reported.

    The student’s roommate made a comment to the group about the stolen wallet and the group of men rushed him and began to punch him for about 10 seconds, according to the report.

    The roommate had a small rug burn on his knee from dropping to the ground during the assault, but suffered no other injuries, police reported.
