A freshman was slashed in the throat on the University of Colorado campus today by an incoherent man who then began stabbing himself, school officials said.Update: the Post has added the suspect's identity. Not Ward.
The student underwent surgery and was "holding his own," university spokesman Bronson Hilliard said. The suspect, a middle-aged man, was arrested and hospitalized with serious stab wounds, the university said.
Update II: the News has much more about the assailant, who's nuts.
Update III: Classes started just today, and a commenter at the Post notes, "geez, what a sucky first day at college."
