Rowan U. student dies of injuries after campus attackPosted: Updated:
A Rowan University student who was brutally attacked and beaten Saturday night died in the hospital Sunday.
Investigators say 19-year-old Donald Farrell, of Boonton, was with a group of friends on campus when he was confronted by a group of man. They say the men stopped to ask Farrell a question, surrounded him and then punched and kicked him.
Authorities say it is the fifth incident since September in which a Rowan student has been attacked by non-students.
In the wake of the attack, some say security on campus needs to be tighter. Some students suggest security camera or more security guards.
Rowan University Director of Public Safety Tim Michener says the issue will be taken care of through investigation. He says basic patrol patterns will not be altered.
Police passed out leaflets with a sketch of one of the suspects Sunday night.
