Security Increased After Attack At Sandhills Community College

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — Security at Sandhills Community College in Moore County is tighter after a student was stabbed.

Police say an unidentified man attacked a 28-year-old nursing student in a stairwell of Kennedy Hall on Oct. 10. She was treated and released from the hospital the next day.

The school has hired an additional security guard, and it is installing more surveillance cameras.

"Supposedly, he came out from under the stairs and that's scary, so they need to put cameras not in such open spaces, but they need to put the cameras in little spaces where people could be hiding and lurking around," student Kamm Hayes said.

Police say the woman who was stabbed did not get a good look at her attacker and could not give a good description of the attacker.
