According to the daily crime report compiled by Campus Safety Services, police arrested three students Feb. 27 for aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation and related charges in connection with the Feb. 15 attack President Ann Weaver Hart referred to as a hate crime.
A fourth suspect is expected to turn himself in.
Officer Jillian Russell of the Philadelphia Police Department Public Affairs Division confirmed the arrests of Stephen Scott, 19, David Scott, 20, both of Willow Grove, Pa. and Michael Walsh, 20, of Florham Park, N.J.
She said the fourth suspect’s lawyer is in contact with police and that he is expected to turn himself in.
The crime, which occurred during the early morning hours of Feb.15, left the victim, a non-Temple student, with a fractured orbital and a broken nose. The perpetrators allegedly used anti-Semitic slurs during the attack.
