Big Rapids, Mich. - A Ferris State University student is in custody after a fellow student was stabbed at an on-campus residence hall.

Police said the suspect, who was arrested Sunday afternoon, is being held in the Mecosta County jail.  An arraignment is expected Monday afternoon. The stabbing happened between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. Sunday.

The injured student was treated at a hospital and released.

The school initially reported that the stabbing took place at an off-campus apartment complex, but officers later learned that it happened at a residence hall where both students live. The school said the students knew each other and a pocket knife may have been used in the stabbing.

The school is located about 50 miles north of Grand Rapids.
