He said the victim suffered injuries to her head, shoulder and right arm with a kitchen knife. The age of the victim is not known. A 13 year old was taken to the juvenile detention center Monday.

Campus police responded and handled the incident. Hetager said does not yet know if the victim is still at Memorial University Medical Center.
