A man was stabbed early Friday morning outside of the Asbury Green apartment complex, following a late-night exchange between several international DU students.

The stabbing occurred at 6:34 a.m. on Friday at the corner East Asbury Avenue and South Josephine Street.

The assailant was charged with aggravated assault, according to the Denver Police Department.

Asbury Green also confirmed the incident, but the complex would not release the identities of the two men involved.

Campus Safety was not dispatched to the scene; however, according to Tyrone Mills, the associate director for Campus Safety, the incident occurred on the street outside the apartment complex.

A 21-year-old female student entered the building approximately at 3:30 a.m. with a friend to find a group of approximately eight men yelling at each other in a different language.

According to the witness, the men were of Middle Eastern descent two of the men already had tattered clothing from a previous scuffle.

The female student went to bed around 4 a.m. and awoke to hear of the stabbing, incident that had occurred earlier in the morning.

“It was clear to us that the situation we walked into was the result of the stabbing or the events that led to the stabbing,” said the student, who wants to remain unidentified. “We didn’t see any blood when we came in, so we don’t know if was before or after we got home.”

The attacker is not a resident of Asbury Green; he was invited over by a friend that lives there, according to the student. She also said that the confrontational exchange occurred in the lobby and walkway areas of the apartment complex.

The witness noted that the floor was entirely wet and covered with empty plastic water bottles.

In the lobby, the student said she also saw a man carrying a flat screen television out of an apartment; however, there were no reports of theft.

Although many Asbury residents are aware of the incident, the apartment complex has failed to disclose an official statement regarding the incident.
