A female UCLA student is hospitalized after a fellow pupil slashed her throat in a chemistry lab.
The suspect was arrested after UCLA police got a call about the stabbing in Young Hall on the south side of the campus at about 12:20 p.m. yesterday.
Both the victim and the suspect worked in the lab. No names have been released and the motive is under investigation.
The woman was being treated for multiple stab wounds at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Her condition was not immediately known.
Police closed off the building to investigate.
Students told the Los Angeles Times they saw a woman stagger out of the lab moments after the attack while a teacher's assistant applied pressure to her bloody neck.
