According to the Independent Florida Alligator, the man has been identified as Michael Dewitz. A spokesman for the Gainsville Police Department told the paper that Dewitz was "jumped" shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday by two men unaffiliated with the university.
The assailants, who were also white, stole Dewitz's jacket and armband after attacking him, officials say. Dewitz suffered minor injuries.
For two days straight, Dewitz made appearances at the University of Florida wearing his swastika armband, both times causing outrage among students and drawing responses from school officials.
