Southeastern student arrested for stabbing incident

HAMMOND — Southeastern Louisiana University reported Thursday that a student was arrested and has been charged with aggravated battery for stabbing, in an isolated incident.

The criminal justice process is ongoing. This incident currently remains under investigation, and the student will go through the proper university disciplinary process as well as the criminal justice system process. The university process may result in disciplinary measures up to and including expulsion, but that is not yet complete.

While the incident remains under investigation, the student has been placed on interim suspension from the University, which bars access to campus and class pending disciplinary resolution. Southeastern can not release any further information at this time.
