University of Michigan police are asking for the public's help to find four suspects wanted for assaulting two people on campus.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at West Hall Arch on South University at East University.

A female student says she was approached by two women who began punching her.

A man on a bicycle then tried to help her out, but he was confronted by a man. As that was happening, another many approached the bicyclist from behind and knocked him out.

One of the women then kicked the unconscious man in the head, before all four left the scene by walking northwest on the Diag.

The suspects are described as follows:

  • White female, about 5'2", 18-24 years old, medium build, blond hair, no glasses, barefoot, wearing a black tank top and dark-colored shorts
  • White female; about 5'5"-5'8"; 18-24 years old; brown hair with long braids; wearing two tank tops, dark-colored shorts and blue Nike shoes
  • Black male; 6'; athletic build; close-shaven dark hair; no glasses; wearing a navy Michigan t-shirt, dark Michigan athletic pants and dark shoes
  • Black male; heavy-set build; 5'10"; short black hair; goatee and mustache; no glasses; wearing a large black t-shirt, dark shorts and bright pink athletic shoes

Police have released photos of two of the suspects.

If you know who they are, you're asked to call the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security at 734-763-1131.
