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.
