Man arrested in connection with battery at Hilltop Apartments

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue police on Monday (March 30) arrested a man on suspicion of beating a female university student on Sunday (March 29) at Hilltop Apartments.

Minwoo Oh, 25, of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, was arrested on preliminary charges of strangulation, battery causing serious bodily injury and confinement while armed. He was taken to Tippecanoe County Jail where he was being held on a $25,000 bond. Oh is not a Purdue student.

Purdue police Lt. Fred Davis said Oh’s girlfriend was a roommate of the victim.

According to a police report, Oh’s girlfriend left the apartment to work on a class project around 3 p.m. Sunday. After she left, Oh allegedly put a knife to her roommate’s throat, then threw down the knife and began hitting her.

After the incident, the victim sought treatment at the Purdue Student Health Center, and center staff contacted police. The woman was later admitted to Home Hospital for additional treatment of neck injuries and facial bruises and abrasions, Davis said.

Officers arrested Oh at around 3 p.m. Monday (March 30) when he returned to the Hilltop Apartments. Police later recovered the knife thought to be used in the attack.

Confinement while armed is a Class B felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, battery causing serious bodily injury is a Class C felony punishable up to eight years in prison and strangulation is a Class D felony that carries a maximum prison term of three years. All three felonies also carry a fine of up to $10,000 each.
