The Raven Saves Again!

Mysterious vigilante strikes again! Still no clue who he is!

Last weekend after partying with friends at Rigg House’s Swalloween party, Nick O’Connor did what he did after every party, and walked back across campus to his dorm. Only, the short walk didn’t turn out like it usually did. A few blocks from Rigg House, he was hit from behind. “I was caught off guard . . . didn’t see him coming. I lost my balance and fell.” As the attacker went to strike again, a hooded figure leaped out from the shadows and dragged the attacker off, allowing O’Connor to run back to his dorm. . . . “This guy just came out of nowhere. It was like he appeared from the sky, dark like a raven . . . [He was] wearing this navy hood, like a jacket or something. Couldn’t see his face.”

Police arrested the suspect and have charged him with assault.

This was not the first report of a hooded man coming to a student’s aid. There are rumors the man is a campus vigilante, and he has been the reason for two prior arrests of students. . . He is mentioned in the Scribe opinions page on more than a handful of occasions.
