Two men were stabbed and injured in the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house at Tufts University not far from Boston on Sunday, the 31st of May 2015 a little before 4:00 a.m.. The news appeared on the university website.
A spokeswoman from the university, Kim Thurler, also stated that the crimes did not appear to be random and that the two male victims were not affiliated with Tufts.
The police are questioning a person of interest, who is believed to be a student of the university in relation to the stabbing that left two people wounded on Sunday morning.
One of the people who were stabbed, a 20-year-old man, is in critical condition after having been in surgery with severe wounds in his neck at Massachusetts General Hospital.
The other one, who was 19 years old was also treated at Massachusetts General Hospital, with less serious wounds. He was released later that day.
A representative of the Somerville Police Department, Chief David R. Fallon stated that it is yet uncertain what the circumstances were and why the people were in that fraternity house. He also refused to say what weapon had been used or whether the police managed to recover it from the scene.
What is even more surprising is that the area is generally considered extremely safe and such things are not likely to happen in this quiet neighborhood.
There haven’t been any reports of disruptive behavior or unusual events in the area before this event, according to Tufts University Deputy police Chief Mark Keith.
The officials stated that there are currently six people living at Delta Tau Delta but only three were present during the stabbing. However, when the police arrived at the scene, there were five people there. The two victims and the main suspect were among them.
The people who were interviewed in relation to the stabbing said that no noises were heard from the building and that the three people living there were generally well-behaved and quiet.
The authorities advised everyone on campus to stay indoors to allow the police to do their job and search the area. After they completed the search, patrol cars would still remain in the area but the alert was lifted.
The police reviewed the surveillance footage taken from a camera that the Somerville Police Department had installed on a street lamp not far from the scene.
No names have been released yet and no representatives from Delta Tau Delta have so far been reached for comments.
