Student stabbed at UMass-Dartmouth

DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Police are investigating after an 18-year-old University of Massachusetts Dartmouth student was stabbed outside a campus apartment complex.

A school spokesman says the student was stabbed yesterday morning during a disturbance in an outdoor common area at the Cedar Dell South apartments. The complex is an on-campus housing complex for upper-classmen.

The student was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, R.I.

The victim’s name was not released but he is expected to survive.

There have been no arrests but the suspect is described as a light-skinned Hispanic or black male, 6 feet tall, with a bushy ponytail and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. It’s not clear if the assailant was a student.
