A Philadelphia man faces charges for the stabbing of a Kutztown University student.
According to the school, the 18-year-old man, who is not a student, has been charged with attempted murder and is in police custody for the attack that occurred near campus on Feb. 20.
The Morning Call identifies the suspect as Robert Centifanti III. He was visiting the friends on campus at the time of the assault, according to the newspaper.
Police say the other two suspects who were caught on surveillance video running away from the scene of the stabbing have been questioned but no charges are expected to be filed against them.

The victim, a 22-year-old student, is still in serious condition, according to the school. Police say the work of emergency responders likely saved the victim's life.
Centifanti turned himself into police Friday and faces additional charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and possessing an instrument of a crime, the Morning Call reports.
He has been jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail.
