Police are searching for a suspect who struck a man with a metal chair on the UCLA campus on Thursday night.

The attack took place around 8:30 p.m. when the suspect attacked the victim with a chair and also yelled out racial slurs inside the campus' Ackerman Student Union, according to CBS Los Angeles. The victim, who is not affiliated with the school, suffered minor cuts and was treated at the scene by paramedics.

The suspect is described as a heavy set Caucasian man believed to be in his 40s, with gray stubble and a large stomach, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt, khaki shorts and a black backpack.

Anyone with information regarding this attack is urged to call the UCLA Police Department at (310) 825-1491, and should refer to report number 15-2066.
