By The Associated Press

HATTIESBURG — Campus police at the University of Southern Mississippi say they have arrested a suspect in a weekend attack that left a student hospitalized.

Police say Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity member 21-year-old Chase LaGarde was charged Wednesday with aggravated assault. They say 19-year-old freshman Stuart Ramsey of Jackson was attacked between two fraternity houses on campus on Saturday night.

A news release from the university says Sigma Phi Epsilon has been indefinitely suspended from campus. They say its national organization revoked its charter. Residents of the house have until Friday to move out.

Police chief Bob Hopkins says LaGarde turned himself in and is in the Forrest County Jail awaiting a court appearance.
