Reports by police indicate the student was approached by the perpetrator shortly before the two engaged in an argument outside an off-campus party. He then allegedly assaulted the victim with a sharp object, fleeing the scene shortly after.
The victim was reportedly taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A description of the victim is limited at the moment. Anyone with information regarding the case can contact the New Brunswick Police Department (NBPD) at 732-745-5217.
