Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Police are investigating a reported assault and mugging of a 21-year-old NDSU student as he left a bar early this morning.

Around 2:30, the man waved down a University police officer.

He said he was walking with a man he had just met at the Bison Turf, when another man struck him in the head. His wallet was gone.

Police say some pieces of the puzzle are still missing. The assault happened at a typically busy time in the area.

Lt. Joel Vettel: "Right around the close of the bar area, near campus which is a busy area for us at any given time. So, certainly unusual that nobody witnessed this type of crime. That's why we continue to look for any possible witnesses."

A K-9 search turned up some of the contents of the wallet. The victim described the two suspects as men in their early 20s.
