BIG RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Campus related violence has been very much in the news lately, and there was another incident over the weekend at Ferris State University.

Mecosta County Deputies say they have a student in custody for the stabbing of another student at the Oakwood Apartment complex just off campus.

Investigators say it appears that the two had been fighting between 2 and 3 a.m. Sunday when the suspect pulled out a pocket knife.

The victim suffered superficial wounds and was treated and released.

It’s the second incident this month that left a Ferris State Student wounded. A shooting on February 1st resulted in the arrest of a Detroit man, who was not a student. That victim was also treated and released.
