WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Administrators at a Catholic college in Massachusetts are investigating an alleged anti-LGBT assault on campus.

Two students at the College of Holy Cross tell the Telegram and Gazette the victim was walking through its Worcester campus when the victim was called a slur and punched by another student over the weekend.

Senior Mithra Salmassi, who is also a co-officer of diversity in the Student Government Association, says the person, whose name has not been released, is still recovering.

College spokesman John Hill says they hosted a community vigil on Tuesday in solidarity of those who are targets of “bias-based violence.”

He declined to provide further details about the alleged assault, which is under investigation by the college’s department of public safety.
