The Observer caught up with the injured student in hospital to find out what happened:
Daria: “There was a Big man with tattoos. Exley was chasing him when I was wheeled away, I think. I was walking home after being in the lab all weekend and I wanted to get home as I needed to do my TikTok for the day. He came at me, tried to get me to go with him to his car. Said his wrist was hurt. When I didn’t go with him, he pulled a knife. Then things got fast. I bled him, he punched me. I bit him. He ran.”
Observer: “So a bad guy attacks you in the college campus unprovoked, you fought back and bravely defended yourself. You’re
my a hero”
Daria “Another student helped me. Roman… Roman Caldwell. Can you mention that his helped likely saved me a few more bruises?”
Of course the Observer is happy to celebrate any brave student and Roman is welcome to call in a favour with us as and when needed. So if you see this fine young man around be sure to know he’s got your back if you need it:
