Woman stabbed in Kutztown University dorm

A woman is in stable condition after being stabbed in a Kutztown University dormitory Monday night, said a university spokesman.

Schaeffer Auditorium at Kuztown University. 

The woman, who was not a student, was reportedly stabbed accidentally by a male student around 10:30 p.m. in Rothermel Hall, said Matt Santos, Kutztown University spokesman.

The male student who had the knife told police it was an accident, Santos said. The male student was questioned Monday night and is not in custody, he said.

Santos said he believes the woman was stabbed once, and did not release her name or hometown.

Further information on the circumstances surrounding the stabbing was not available, Santos said. He said he did not know if the knife belonged to the student, or what type it was.

The incident remains under investigation by university police and possibly other agencies, Santos said. In addition to the criminal investigation, the student faces action by the campus judicial process, Santos said.

University policy prohibits possession, carrying or use of knives with blades longer than four inches, as well as switchblade knives.
