Correction: Student sucker punched while lending a lighter

Today’s front page story about the assault near Tri-Towers, “Student sucker punched while lending a lighter,” incorrectly described the event as happening “last night.” Because of a copy editor’s error, the story, which was posted on yesterday, was never changed for today’s newspaper. The assault occurred Tuesday night.

Readers should also note that because of misinformation gathered at the scene Tuesday night, the Daily Kent Stater reported yesterday that the crime was a mugging. Kent State police confirmed yesterday it was an assault.
