SAN JOSE (KCBS) — San Jose State University police are investigating the beating of a man at the campus on Tuesday night.

A 22-year-old victim was walking with a group of people just after 8:30 p.m. when he got into a fight with another man between the science building and the library. After a struggle on the lawn, the victim ended up having his head slammed repeatedly against the sidewalk. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The incident comes just two weeks after another man on campus was pistol whipped by three women who stole his laptop computer.

Asia, a junior at SJSU who didn’t want to give her last name, said security has been a growing concern on campus.

“It’s a little weird because it’s an open campus and people can just come in and out and I feel like it’s not as safe…as I would like, even if we do have whole police unit here,” she said.

Police are investigating both incidents and are encouraging that students take advantage of their “Evening Guide Escort” program.
