The suspect who US police officers believe is connected to the fatal assault of a Saudi university student last month is currently not in custody because officers say they person does not pose a threat to society.

Hussain Saeed Alnahdi, 24, a student attending the University of Wisconsin-Stout in the US, died after being beaten near a pizzeria last month, police said.

Police in Wisconsin said that this was an isolated incident and that the suspect is not a “safety concern to the community,” US news site NBC News reported on Monday.

Alnahdi was left unconscious on the street after the attack and later died from his injuries.

The suspect, whose name is currently being withheld, is pending charges and will be formally arrested and taken into custody, the police said.
