Indiana University police say a group of African Americans used racial slurs before attacking and robbing a group of Asian students.


In a news release, university police say eight Asian students were walking to a dorm on the Bloomington campus when five black males and three black females approached them.

Police say the blacks used anti-Chinese slurs and words were exchanged.

Police say four of the Asians were assaulted or robbed. They say one was treated at a hospital for facial injuries and released.
