HANOVER — Bystanders intervened to come to the aid of a Dartmouth College graduate student who was being physically assaulted near the campus on Saturday night, according to the college’s safety and security office,

The student was accosted and attacked near the intersection of Main Street and Wheelock Street at around 10:49 p.m. by an “older man” who then fled the area before police arrived, Dartmouth Safety & Security said in an alert it issued on Monday.

The student, who was not identified, did not sustain any physical injuries, the safety office said.

The suspect, who had an active “no trespass letter” against him from being allowed on college property, is “well-known to law enforcement in this area for mental health issues,” Hanover Police Lt. Mike Schibuola said via email.

Schibuloa said the victim has not decided whether or not he wants to press charges.
