We regret to inform you of a criminal incident at Sterling House Residence this afternoon (Thursday 07 January 2021), where it is alleged that students were fighting
in a room. Sadly, one of the students was stabbed during the altercation. When the Residence Advisor arrived on the scene, paramedics were called to assist the student who was stabbed. The ambulance arrived within five minutes of receiving the call but tragically,
the injured student had passed on. The police are currently on the scene and they are investigating this very serious criminal incident.
Our colleagues from Student Services will be contacting the next of kin and providing the necessary support to the family. We hope that the police will have a successful
investigation and that justice will be served against whoever committed this heinous crime.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the deceased. May their soul rest in peace.
