MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- A Minnesota State, Mankato, student is in custody following an armed assault at the university's library.

Authorities say a male student was grabbed from behind at knifepoint in a bathroom Wednesday night, but was able to escape.

The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
