The horrifying Feb. 26, 2021, attack in a Quinnipiac dorm room left both students hospitalized, local police said.
It might be time to look into an off-campus apartment.
A disagreement over a light in a college dorm room led to one Connecticut student being stabbed in his sleep by his roommate, according to police.
The horrifying Friday morning attack in a Quinnipiac University dorm room left both students hospitalized, Hamden Police said in a press release.
A 20-year-old student told cops that his roommate “jumped on top of him” and began punching him in the face while he was asleep.
The roommate then “cut his throat” with a knife, leaving a “large laceration,” officials said.
After responding officers confiscated the weapon at 3:10 a.m., both students were sent to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment, cops said.
Hamden Police could not immediately be reached for word on charges.
“Investigation revealed that the altercation stemmed from an argument they had about a light in their room,” police said.
