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, October 31st 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.

Police were dispatched to the scene for a report of a physical altercation, and when they arrived, they located an unconscious man bleeding from his mouth and nose.

Witnesses at the scene told police the victim had been assaulted by a white man who was about six feet tall. Witnesses said the suspect fled the scene prior to the arrival of police.

Alnahdi was initially taken to Mayo Clinic Health System in Menomonie, and then airlifted to Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire.


  • calls it like it is

    This happened under Barrys watch, so acctuly this is what it will look like in a Hildabeast America.

    • calls it like it is

      not really if Hildabeast, is claiming to be a 3rd term of Barry. Race relations are $hit, under the president that claims to be the “most transparent”

    This is my little hometown .. Trump had nothing to do with it.. and we have had students from around the world in my home since the 1950’s…there is a reason for the fight and the death of the man.. the Police in Menomonie will handle this with Honor and due Diligence…just a shame that a tiny college town has to have these problems..

  • craig

    Trump or Hillary to blame,get real its 2am .Im guessing alcohol and dumbasses thrown together at the wrong time.

    • confused

      True, booze, a smart ass comment or hit on another’s girl, shoulder shove as they pass on the sidewalk, anyway I hope they catch the guy. At long last WI is finally perusing bar fights that lead to death too. You punch someone in the head or they hit their and die,massive internal you are at fault. No matter what was said/done to you or your group, girl whatever. Even if he 1st punch is not thrown by you, YOU can walk away.
