Black Oregon college student says he’s forgiven attackers.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A black Lewis & Clark College student who told police he was assaulted by three white men on campus said Tuesday he forgives the attackers. Tanguy Muvuna spoke to more than 200 students, faculty and staff in a packed lecture hall, drawing tears from many as he told his audience that he was fine. “Those who attacked me, I forgive them,” he said. He asked his fellow black students to stand with him and urged the mostly white student body to come and hug their black classmates. “And tell them that we are one,” Muvuna said. Meanwhile, college administrators said in a letter posted online that it’s unclear whether an alleged attack on a transgender student the same night is related.

Police said Tuesday they’re aware of the reported attack but don’t have enough information to begin an investigation, such as the identity of the victim or the location of the assault.
