Police Arrest 14-year-old Suspected Of Stabbing A Student At USYD

Australian police have arrested a 14-year-old boy after a stabbing at the University of Sydney on Tuesday morning, which triggered a lockdown of the university buildings. 

Emergency crews treated a 22-year-old man, who was taken to a hospital in a serious but stable condition, New South Wales state police said in a statement. 

The 14-year-old boy who allegedly stabbed a student in the neck at the University of Sydney has charges against him last year dropped, NSW Police Minister Yasmin Catley says. 

The teenager is in hospital undergoing health assessments after the incident at the university's primary campus in Camperdown on Tuesday morning. 

Paramedics responded to reports of a stabbing about 8:35am and found a 22-year-old man suffering from a single stab wound to the neck. 

The man and the teenager were not known to each other, police said. 

Police allege the man was stabbed by the teenager, who was dressed in camouflage at the time of the attack, with a kitchen knife. 

The student was treated at the scene and taken to nearby Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a serious but stable condition but was released a few hours later. 

Officers established a crime scene after the stabbing and were told the teenager had boarded a bus on Parramatta Road. 

Police arrested the boy near Royal Prince Alfred Hospital shortly after.
