Joseph Igbineweka was walking near the college Sunday when two men he was passing began making racial slurs, police said. Igbineweka ignored them, but police say the men then followed him and continued yelling.
When Ignineweka turned, one of the men struck him causing the student leader to fight back. Then the man who struck Igbineweka pulled a pocket knife and stabbed him at least four times, the Associated Press reported. Igbineweka is expected to recover.
Police were able to locate a 19-year-old suspect who now faces attempted murder and hate crime charges, the AP reported.
