Two University students suffered head wounds Friday night in a fight with a band of youths attempting to crash a party at the students' off-campus house. Canada said the students told police they were arguing with a few local residents who wanted to enter their party when a gang of about 20 to 30 males, about 14 and 15 years old, approached the house. Police said they believe the youths are members of an Asian gang. The youths climbed onto the porch and went into an alleyway and began shouting insults at the students. When one of the students told them to leave, Canada said, he was hit over the head from behind. The student told police he believes he was hit with a cinder block. When the other student also told the youths to leave, he was punched and then tackled by several youths. Friends intervened but he was struck again in the head and in the eye. Canada said the students did not report the incident immediately because of their injuries. She said students notified police Monday morning.
