It turns out that the University of Maryland student who reported that he was beaten and robbed after leaving a bar near campus was not robbed after all, authorities said. But he was beaten, they said.
Originally, Prince George’s County police said the student was attacked early Friday by two men he had met in a bar a short distance from campus.. Police said the men followed him, beat and kicked him, causing him to lose consciousness briefly. They said he awoke to find his cell phone and wallet had been stolen. His injuries were described as minor.
