MIAMI (AP) -- Police are investigating the beating of a Miami Dade College music professor to see whether it was ordered by a student angry over a bad grade.

The Miami Herald reported Tuesday (http://hrld.us/1jugwPh) that 31-year-old professor Marc Magellan was attacked last week inside a parking garage.

Magellan told police that the assailant called out "Professor Marc" and when Magellan turned around, sucker punched him in the face. Magellan fell to the ground and the assailant began punching him and smashing his head on the concrete floor, leaving him with a broken nose and hand and other injuries.

Magellan told police he did not recognize his attacker but speculated that the attack might have stemmed from a bad grade he gave to a student.
