Authorities are trying to locate former USC football player Jalen Antwan Dread, wanted in connection to a recent assault at a Five Points bar. Dread, 20, is accused of assaulting a male victim at the Five Points Saloon a week ago, the Columbia Police Department said Saturday. Deebo Samuel, a junior wide receiver for the Gamecocks football team, was not at the bar when the event happened, but he was in Five Points, Columbia Police spokesperson Jennifer Timmons said Saturday. Skai Moore, a USC senior linebacker, was present, but did not participate in the assault. A 24-year-old man reported that about 2:45 a.m. on April 29 a phone was knocked from his hand in Five Points Saloon. The three accused men denied they were responsible but “became agitated,” the police report states. The confrontation escalated into the man who complained being punched in the face several times, the police document states. “(S)ubjects were pulled off (the man) by bar staff and escorted out of the bar,” according to the report. The man’s left eye was clearly swollen, the report states.
