    Two University of Delaware students are facing charges after they allegedly attacked a man on Main Street, police said.

    The incident happened just after 1 a.m. April 7, according to court documents. Police identified the defendants as Azarro Ravery, 19, and Rami Massoud, 20, both from Bethesda, Md.

    According to witness statements and surveillance video, the victim was on Main Street when Ravery and Massoud began arguing with him. Another person tried to separate them, but Ravery and Massoud followed the victim, punched him and shoved him to the ground, court documents allege.

    Ravery could be seen on surveillance video rearing back his leg and kicking the victim in the face while the victim was on the ground. He also said, “I put you in the ground,” court records indicate.

    Witnesses called 911 and when officers arrived, the victim had blood all over his face and was “clearly disoriented,” according to court documents. He was taken to Christiana Hospital to be treated for a fractured orbital socket and broken teeth.

    The two assailants were seen fleeing down the alley between Switch Skateboarding and Honeygrow. The alley leads to the rear entrance to an off-campus student housing complex.

    Detectives obtained a list of tenants from the landlord and cross-referenced the names with photos from social media and law enforcement databases. Ravery and Massoud, who are roommates, matched the suspect descriptions obtained from witnesses and surveillance footage.

    Detectives searched their apartment and found a shoe with what appeared to be dried blood on it, as well as clothing that matched the clothing the assailants were wearing in the surveillance video.

    Ravery and Massoud were arrested April 16 and charged with second-degree assault and second-degree conspiracy. They were both released after posting $12,000 secured bail.

    Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Det. Paige Klein at 302-366-7100, ext. 3480, or pklein@newark.de.us.
