Ann Arbor police are looking for two suspects in connection to an alleged assault in a Forest Street parking structure early Friday morning that left a 20-year-old University of Michigan student hospitalized with a broken jaw.

Detective Dave Monroe said the victim, who was alone at the time of the alleged assault, told police he was urinating in the parking structure at about 2:30 a.m. Friday morning, when he was approached by two men. The victim told police that the men were angered by his urinating, and that they confronted him about it, according to Monroe.

Monroe said that, according to the victim, one of the men then assaulted the victim before leaving the parking structure with the other man.

The man who allegedly assaulted the student, described by Monroe as a 5'9" to 5'10", 175 to 180 lbs. male in his early twenties wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, may have mentioned being a United States Marine or being affiliated with the Marine Corps during the course of the altercation, Monroe said.

Monroe described the other man as a 5'6" to 5'7", 145 to 150 lbs. male in his early twenties wearing a dark collared shirt at the time of the incident.

Monroe said the two unidentified men may be connected to a "red-colored pickup or SUV."

People with any information are asked to call the Ann Arbor Police Department at (734) 794-6911 or Detective Monroe at (734) 794-6930 ext. 49308 with any information related to the incident.
