It remains unclear who – if anyone – will be charged in the September off-campus attack which left a Stonehill student hospitalized in serious condition.


Repeated attempts to learn more information about the case from Brockton police and the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office were unsuccessful.


No information on whether the attackers were identified was released and no information on whether any charges will be lodged was released.


The Summit made repeated attempts to find information from both law enforcement agencies weekly in the past month to no avail.


A spokesman for the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office said last week she had no knowledge of the case when contacted.


The attack occurred in Brockton Sept. 15 outside of Owen O’Learys, a popular bar among students.


Nikolay Lisichenok, a senior at Stonehill, was assaulted and suffered severe injuries. He was hospitalized for nearly two weeks in a Boston hospital after suffering head trauma.


The Stonehill police department worked in conjunction with Brockton police on the case, and sent a campus-wide email to students with photos of suspects asking for students to reach out if they recognized anyone from the photos.


It was not known if Brockton police were able to identify the assailants. However, Stonehill students reportedly were very cooperative with authorities in the case.


Brockton Detective Michael Cesarini, in an interview with the Summit October 15, said Lisichenok had recovered and was back on campus.
