«The individual has no affiliation to the UB and was released with a appearance ticketJohn Dellas Contrada, vice president of communications at the University at Buffalo, told Fox News Digital.
The university identified the suspect as a female.

Gaines, who has been a champion of rights of female athletes and disagrees that transgender women have the ability to compete against biological women, posted a video last Thursday of being rushed out of the venue at San Francisco State University.
«Prisoners are in charge of the asylum at SFSU…I was ambushed and physically beaten twice by a male,» Gaines wrote in the tweet along with the video. «This is proof that women need safe spaces from sex. Even more, it assures me that I’m doing something right. When they want you quiet, speak up.»
Gaines’ agent, Eli Bremer, asked the university to take a position.
In an exclusive statement to Fox News Digital on Friday, Bremer called on the university to expel «any student who was violent» and fire any staff member «who did not attempt to stop the assault.»

«Riley Gaines, America’s leading advocate for women’s rights, was physically assaulted last night in San Francisco State University (SFSU). The violent mob held her hostage for three hours with no apparent action taken by the university to end the assault,» Bremer said.
«Violence and threats against women are always wrong, and we demand that SFSU expel any student found to have been violent. In addition, we demand that any staff member who was present and did not attempt to stop the assault on Riley also be terminated «.
