A Fresno City College student was assaulted early Tuesday morning by two men who demanded his backpack, State Center Community College District Police said.

Police say the victim was approached by two Hispanic males on parking lot D around 8 a.m.

The student refused to give up his backpack and the two males struck him in the face with closed fists, police said. The student did manage to fight back before the suspects fled the scene.

According to police, the suspects were last seen heading west on McKinley Avenue in a black, 2-door Honda CRX with black taillights.
