An 18-year-old man was hospitalized and five people were arrested in connection with an attack at the College of Marin’s Kentfield campus Tuesday, the campus police chief said today. At about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, campus police responded to a report of a fight in progress at the school’s science center, police Chief Charles Lacy said. The campus is located at 835 College Ave. in unincorporated Kentfield. Officers arriving in the area saw a handful of people running away from the scene and were eventually able to arrest five suspects in connection with the attack, Lacy said. The suspects allegedly jumped the 18-year-old victim and another person. The 18-year-old, a Sausalito resident, was taken to a local hospital with a laceration to his eye and was released later Tuesday, according to Lacy. The second person was uninjured. Damien Hill-Crowder, 18, Thomas Judson, 21, and Eli Thompson, 20, all Marin City residents, were arrested on suspicion of assault and battery. A fourth suspect, Sheldon Williams, 24, of San Rafael, was arrested on
suspicion of assault, Lacy said. A fifth suspect was cited for battery and later released. Lacy said police were still investigating the attack and trying to determine a motive. “It’s very rare for this kind of thing to happen on our campus, and we were fortunate to have a speedy response and get the cooperation of other students,” he said. The four suspects in custody are being held on $50,000 bail, according to Lacy.
