Police took a teen into custody on Monday in connection to a 20-year-old student's death, the Star Tribune reported.

Police are holding the 17-year-old man in connection to the punch that caused Colton Gleason to fall and hit his head Thursday, the Star Tribune reported.

Investigators said that Thursday night Gleason and two female friends were walking in an alley when car passed. The car then stopped and person got out and punched Gleason, causing him to fall and hit his head, the Pioneer Press reported.

Gleason was taken to St. Cloud Hospital where he died from head injuries Friday, the Star Tribune reported.

Police said Gleason didn't know the assailant and that police are unsure what prompted the assault, the Star Tribune reported.

Police asked for the public's help to identify the attacker and asked those who were in the car to come forward. In exchange for information leading to an arrest, Crimestoppers offered a $1,000 reward, the Star Tribune reported.

The teen was being held in a juvenile detention center on Monday, the Star Tribune reported.
