MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) --  A student at Middle Tennessee State University says he was assaulted early Tuesday morning by three men wearing Halloween masks.

In a report filed with police 19-year-old Tigo C. Lang says he was walking on Baird Lane  a block from campus just after midnight when he was struck from behind.

The three assailants tried, but failed to snatch his backpack.

Lang was struck a second time in the face before they fled.

He says one subject was wearing a “Jason” mask, another was wearing a bunny mask, while a third was wearing a generic face mask.

Lang was treated for his injuries at St. Thomas Rutherford ER.
