DALLAS, Texas – A Texas college student was arrested after allegedly attacking an OU student ahead of the Red River Rivalry in October.

Trent Kreslins, an OU student, was in Dallas to celebrate his 23rd birthday in October ahead of the OU/Texas game when he saw something he couldn’t ignore.

“We walked by, he hit her and I saw her head bob back,” Kreslins said.

With no hesitation, his instincts took over.

“Walked back towards him and said, ‘It’s not cool to hit women,’ and he just got super amped up,” Kreslins said.

Kreslins says that the man hit him in the face and when he went to the ground, others joined in.

“The guy who hit the girl hit me, and then I just went down, and that group of guys just jumped me basically and just beat me while I was on the ground,” Kreslins said.

Police arrived and rushed Kreslins to the hospital. His injuries were exacerabed by a rare bone disease that makes his bones very weak.

However, he told NewsChannel 4 that he knew he had to step in when he saw the alleged suspect hitting a woman.

“I didn’t want to be one of the countless other people that would just walk by,” Kreslins said.

Now, police have arrested the man who they say is responsible for Kreslins' injuries.

According to FOX 4, authorities say Abdullah Bannat was arrested at Collin County College on a complaint of injury to a disabled person.
