People’s Park was the site of protests in August after a judge ordered that a homeless encampment could be removed so the university can build a housing project on the ground. The park sits three blocks south of UC Berkeley’s campus.
Anyone with information about Wednesday’s attack is asked to call UCPD at (510) 642-6760.
