MENOMONIE -- A student at the University of Wisconsin-Stout has died after he was injured in a weekend assault in Menomonie.

The university's chancellor sent a letter to students and staff on Monday saying 24-year-old Hussain Saeed Alnahdi died from injuries he received early Sunday.
Chancellor Bob Meyer said in his letter that Alnahdi was from Buraydah, Saudi Arabia, and was a junior majoring in business administration. He started attending UW-Stout in 2015.
Menomonie police are still investigating.
Meyer also made a personal plea for anyone with information about the assault to come forward so police can find the person responsible. The assault occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday in downtown Menomonie, near Topper's Pizza.
