PITTSBURGH - According to police, a man was attacked by three people at the Community College of Allegheny County's North campus Monday.

Channel 11’s Cara Sapida talked to student Shelby Thor, who witnessed the attack.

“I was just walking to the bookstore with my friends and all of a sudden I heard people calling security and I looked up. There was a group of guys beating up on the kid. They were all surrounding him kicking him,” said Thor.
