Student arrested, charged with Buffalo State stabbing

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Just days after police put out a call for help from the public to identify a man captured on security footage immediately after a stabbing, police say they made an arrest.

Buffalo State University Police say they arrested 22-year-old Mohamed Kaba, a student at the university, charging him with first degree assault, two counts of burglary and fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Kaba, a Yonkers native, allegedly stabbed a student and caused injury to another, sending each to the hospital, Monday at on-campus student apartments.

“There’s no indication that there was a robbery or any other type of crime involved in it, so while it’s upsetting to take place on campus, our information now is that it was a targeted assault and our campus community is safe,” Peter Carey, Buffalo State University Police Chief, said.

Police say the student is behind bars while his arraignment is pending. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
