University of Michigan authorities are seeking tips from the public to find four people wanted for allegedly assaulting two people on the Ann Arbor campus Wednesday.

A student was walking near West Hall Arch in the 1000 block South University about 1:30 a.m. when two females approached her and started punching her, investigators said in a statement.

One suspect is described as a white female, about 5-foot-2, 18-24 years old, with a medium build and blond hair. She was last seen barefoot and wearing a black tank top over dark-colored shorts.

A bicyclist tried to intervene but was confronted by two males; one approached “from behind and knocked him unconscious,” the release said. “One of the females then kicked the unconscious victim in the head.”

All four suspects fled northwest into the Diag, officials said.

One is described as a white female, about 5-foot-2, 18-24 years old, with a medium build and blond hair. She was last seen barefoot and wearing a black tank top over dark-colored shorts.

The second is described as a white female, between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-8, 18-24 years old, with brown hair in long braids. She was last seen wearing two tank tops, dark-colored shorts and blue Nike shoes.

The third suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-10, with a heavy-set build, short black hair, a goatee and mustache. He was last seen wearing a large black T-shirt, dark shorts and bright pink athletic shoes.

Police described the third suspect as an African-American male, about 6 feet tall with a athletic build and close-shaven dark hair. He was last seen wearing a navy Michigan T-shirt, dark Michigan athletic pants and dark shoes.

The fourth suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-10, with a heavy-set build, short black hair, a goatee and mustache. He was last seen wearing a large black T-shirt, dark shorts and bright pink athletic shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security at (734) 763-1131 or (734) 763-9180.
