Two University of Arizona students have been suspended from the school, following an on-campus assault. Criminal arraignment hearings were held Monday in Pima County.

Earlier this month, two white students, 20-year-old Matthew Frazier and 19-year-old Matthew Rawlings, were accused of repeatedly yelling the N-word at the black student. 

They later turned to physical attacks, according to a police report. Both were arrested on misdemeanor assault charges.

A judge ordered both students not to contact the victim, whose name hasn't been released.
