Police say they've made a 2nd arrest in a game day assault at ECU.

It happened before ECU's season opener against Old Dominion in the Student Pirate Club parking lot at the bottom of College Hill Drive.

24-year-old Stefan James Vaughan of Currituck County was arrested Sept. 9 and charged with assault inflicting serious injury. Vaughan isn't a current or past student at ECU. His bond was set at $25,000.

Police previously charged 21-year-old Blade Hunter Perdue with assault inflicting serious injury and simple assault in the incident. He's not a current or past ECU student, according to the university registrar's office. His bond was set at $5,000. Perdue has a previous arrest for misdemeanor DWI alcohol.

"I would like to commend our investigating officers for their diligence in working this assault investigation. They had little to go on immediately following the event and 10 days later we have a second arrest," said ECU Police Deputy Chief Jason Sugg. "I would also like to thank the concerned citizens who called in with information. Their assistance was also crucial in the days after the incident."

There's no word from university officials on what prompted the assault on 23-year-old Gregory Taylor Shouse, but Vaughan and Perdue will be banned from campus because of their involvement in the assault.

Investigation into the incident is ongoing. If you have any information contact Officer Mann at 252-328-6787.
