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.
