---- — BEVERLY — Beverly police are searching for two suspects that allegedly attacked an Endicott College student early Sunday morning, breaking his eye socket, police said.

The 19-year-old male victim reported the incident to police on Sunday at 11:41 a.m.

The victim told police that he was walking along a path toward the main campus when he was approached by two unidentified men, according to a statement from Beverly police spokesman Officer Mike Boccuzzi.

After he passed them on the path, one of the suspects punched the victim with a closed fist, breaking his eye socket, while the other confronted him verbally, police said.
