Police in Menomonie, Wisconsin, are investigating an assault Sunday that killed an international student at University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Police say about 2:11 p.m. they got a report of a physical altercation on the 400 block of Main Street East, near Topper's Pizza. Officers arrived to find an unconscious man bleeding from his mouth and nose.
Twenty-four-year-old Hussain Saeed Alnahdi was transported to a local hospital before being airlifted to Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire where he later died.
Alnahdi came to UW-Stout in 2015.
Police aren't releasing the victim's name until they confirm family members have been notified. However, a letter from UW-Stout Chancellor Bob Meyer to students and faculty said he is a student from Saudi Arabia.
No arrest has been made. Witnesses told police Alnahdi had been assaulted by a white man about 6 feet tall, who left on foot going westbound on Main Street.
Anyone with information about the assault is asked to contact Menomonie police investigator Kelly Pollock at 715-232-1283.
