WVU Students Raise Concerns Over Safety After Two Students Are Stabbed

There's an old saying that nothing good happens after midnight.
That might be the case the past few days in Morgantown because since Friday two West Virginia University students have been stabbed in two different off-campus attacks.
Now some of them have raised serious concerns about their safety.
"That kind of shocked me and I guess it made me a little nervous," WVU freshman, Tyler Coleman said.
That's how Coleman reacted when he learned two of his fellow students had been stabbed in a span of three days.
"Everyone is always out on the weekend so something like that can happen anywhere," Coleman said.
The first took place early Friday morning. That's when police were called to some sort of scuffle in front of Karma Nightclub in downtown Morgantown.
Apparently that incident moved to Walnut Street and that's where they found Mountaineer student Juan Guerra Junior stabbed multiple times.
The second incident happened just after midnight on Sunday morning on Van Voorhis road. In that incident WVU student Nicholas Ashley was stabbed in the abdomen.
Both of the men are expected to be okay, but the people responsible are still on the loose.
"I couldn't defend myself if that situation happened to me," WVU junior, Georgia Jablon said.
Those two incidents have students on edge about their safety
"Avoid getting into confrontations would be my number one recommendation," WVU Police Chief, Bob Roberts said.
Roberts also urged students to travel in groups, especially when heading out at night.
"Typically there are three types of people out after midnight, " Roberts said. "Those people are criminals, victims, and cops."
Police haven't said if they think the two incidents are related.
If you know anything call the Morgantown Police Department at (304) 284-7522.
