ASU student stabbed in hand at Manzanita Hall

A student was arrested under suspicion of stabbing another student in the hand Monday afternoon

An ASU student was arrested Monday after being accused of stabbing another student in the hand with a kitchen knife in the Manzanita Residence Hall on College Avenue, a University spokesperson said. 

The student was arrested without incident and the other student received non-life threatening injuries, said the spokesperson. 

"This was an isolated incident between two students that knew each other," the University statement read.

This is the fourth reported incident of crime in Manzanita Hall since January of this year, according to the January and February ASU police logs. 


Nicholas Sims, a political science freshman, lives in Manzanita Hall and said he heard about the incident earlier today. 

"People were freaked out earlier, but it seems calmed down now," he said. 

Sims said the incident did not make him fear for his safety but has made him "more cautious." 

ASU Police is currently investigating the incident.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
