A man was detained Wednesday by police at College of the Canyons following an altercation with three students.

The suspect approached a group of students in a threatening manner, then allegedly struck one of the students numerous times and pushed a faculty member before the fight was broken up.

It is not presently clear whether the suspect was a student on campus.

The victim is pressing charges, though he did not sustain any serious injuries, according to COC PIO Eric Harnish.

An ambulance did arrive on scene and the victim refused treatment.

Any incidents involving violence toward a student on campus is handled through the COC Dean of Students, with the proper disciplinary action determining the eventual outcome.
