CNU just released this safety alert - "The University Police has assisted the Newport News Police in responding to a stabbing incident that occurred at the Warwick Restaurant adjacent to the University property. Newport News Police currently have placed the suspect(s) in custody. There is no further threat to the community."

Newport News police say the call came in at 10:30 a.m. Friday morning.

Police and medics responded to the Warwick Restaurant at 12306 Warwick Boulevard to a report of a stabbing.

When police arrived, officers determined that a verbal altercation between two people had escalated to a point where one of the individuals attempted to strangle the other.

Police say the physical altercation was broken up by others in the restaurant. At that time, the person who attempted to strangle the other was leaving the restaurant when the other person picked up a large knife, chased the other person, and stabbed him in the abdominal area.

The stabbing victim was taken to a local hospital with, what is believed to be, non -life threatening injuries. The stabbing suspect has been detained.

Police will release more information as it becomes available.
