CHICAGO (AP) - A 20-year-old man was critically wounded after being stabbed by a fellow student at a university in Chicago.

Police say the 20-year-old victim and the 42-year-old suspect were in one of East-West University's classrooms Tuesday afternoon when the older man stabbed the victim in the back with a knife.

The victim was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment. Details about the victim's identity, other than his age and gender, have not been released by police.
