BUCKHANNON, West Virginia — Police say a West Virginia Wesleyan College student has been charged with attacking another student with a hammer near campus in Buckhannon last month.

Buckhannon Police Chief Matt Gregory tells WBOY-TV (http://bit.ly/1Zz6i5B ) that Jackson Dalton Tyler is charged with malicious assault. It isn't clear whether Tyler, a 21-year-old Cross Lanes resident, has an attorney.

Officials say Robert Brunswick was injured during the Dec. 5 attack and had to undergo medical treatment.

The Inter-Mountain (http://bit.ly/1T4HHpA ) reports six others ranging in age from 19 to 23 were charged with felony aiding and abetting malicious assault. They were released on bond.

School spokeswoman Rochelle Long says Wesleyan is conducting its own investigation into the incident.
