NYU student takes to social media to get Campus Safety to act on his assault case

NYU public safety

New York University (NYU) Campus Safety has finally sent a campus-wide Safety Alert email addressing an alleged assault on an Asian student, following days of social media pressure from the victim and other student supporters.

On Feb. 16, 22-year-old NYU student AJ Sun claimed in an Instagram post that he had been assaulted just the day before in front of the university’s Stern building around 4:30 p.m. Sun described his attacker as a “white male” with blond hair who “quickly fled the scene” after he had “punched the left side of [Sun’s] head for no reason.”
